Visiting #Babaji's cave in the #Himalayas in North India: a photo essay

For those of you interested in making pilgrimages to holy spots across the world and meditating where saints have meditated, a visit to Babaji's cave in the Himalayas is a must. The cave is a 45 minute trek from a place called Kukuchina located in the small town of Dunagiri in North India, not so far away from Dwarahat. Infact, my recommendation would be to stay at Dwarahat and hire a cab for the day to drive to Kukuchina. Here are some pictures from a trip I made there with some friends some time back.
