For nearly a billion Hindus in India and beyond, the Ganges is more than a river. It represents a divine conduit for pilgrims’ prayers, and is a source of sustenance for people and wildlife alike. Photographer Pete McBride and fellow expedition members captured these moments on video during a 45-day journey down the Ganges by foot, boat, bike, aircraft, rickshaw, bus, train, and even elephant.
