This sounds lush. I would absolutely love to spend a few weeks at a time hidden away deep in the Himalaya close to the source of the river Ganges. Silence, reflection, meditation, complete solitude. Sign me up.

This short clip from National Geographic on ‘Silent Baba’ is a sadhu, or holy man, living in solitude and prayer hasn’t spoken for seven years—his chosen form of reverence to the sacred Ganges River. He lives in a humble stone ashram at 14,200 feet in the Himalayan mountains.
