When Sir Edmund Hillary and his Indian team planned a jet boat expedition up the Ganges from Bay of Bengal to its Himalayan source, they knew that they would have all the excitement that they desired. Mother Ganga is the sacred heart of India, place of ultimate purification and pilgrimage. There was even the memory of rare encounter with exclusive tigers of the Sundarbans. There were temples, palaces, and experiences of the thronged waterfront at Varanasi, holiest city of Ganga. This is a memorable story of a jet boat expedition up the Ganges from the Bay of Bengal to its Himalayan source, led by Sir Edmund Hillary and his New Zealand and Indian team.
