Gallery 1 of 2. Part of my ride in Arunachal Pradesh.
This album is dedicated to the Brahmaputra River, not only does he bring life and resources to the beings that it supported. But most importantly to remind us of the challenges we have to face daily and to overcome them one at a time.
Brahmaputra River, the 10th largest river in the world by discharge and the 29th longest.
Known as Dibang or Siang in Arunachal Pradesh. On the upper stream in Southern Tibet, it is called Yarlung-Tsangpo.
The lower reaches are sacred to Hindus. And it has a rare male name for a river in the Indian subcontinent, as it means ‘son of Brahma’ in Sanskrit.
The ride is at Eastern Arunachal Pradesh, Dec 2014-Jan 2015 with the Ride of My Life Moto Tours crew, who contributed to some of the photos.
All live supported by the mother river.
