Join Tahoe based photographer Ryan Salm for an amazing presentation which leads the viewer through the festival streets, packed with millions of pilgrims amongst thousands of naked Sadhu (Hindu holy men). From there the journey proceeds with a dip in the Ganges on Hinduism's most auspicious day and straight into inflating standup paddle boards and paddling on faith down one of the dirtiest, "most pure" rivers on the planet.
