I was in Ladakh on July 2016 for 12 days. This tour was one of my best till date. This trip was just unforgettable.

I have started my journey on 4th July from Kolkata to Delhi. After reaching Delhi, I went for Manali. It was a 12-hour bus journey. The next day was the resting day at Manali. On 4th July, I started the road trip to Leh. Our first stop was Sarchu. It is almost 14,000 ft above the sea level. I experienced a mesmerizing night sky with the Milky Way and billions of stars out there.

The next day, I traveled to Tsomoriri. It is a lake placed almost 15000 ft above the sea level. I stayed at a camp near the Tsomoriri lake. Completing one night there, next day was our last day to reach Leh.

On 6th July I reached Leh, the heaven of Kashmir. I stayed there for 5 days and in between I visited Nubra Valley and Pangong Tso.

During our road trip we have crossed some of the highest motorable mountain passes of the world. The beauty of Manali – Leh highway was stunning.

Ladakh is a favorite place for photographers. You can’t miss anything while you are in a road trip. This has happened to me also. I took almost 8000 images during my 12-day trip. 5000 among them was for time lapse photography.

I made this 3 mins timelapse video with 5000 images.

Daily Post Photo Challenge: Spare

road, north sikkim, travel

I am just back from a refreshing trip to the Himalayan mountains in North Sikkim. There I saw how the environment is being polluted everyday by smokey tourist vehicles. Even the landscapes at above 17,800 feet are not spared from grasp of so-called “tourism”. Tourism in hilly areas like Sikkim, is definitely a means of economic development. But I doubt if it is always good for the nature and environment around us! What do you say?

“My ultimate search has been for a muse”

My ultimate search has been for a muse.

Dominic Monaghan

And I have found her in the mighty mountains, in the verdant vales and in the green slopes of the hills. I would love to come back a thousand times to the road that leads to mountain.

I can remember it was a cloudy day and it drizzled quite a few times during was our journey from Thimphu to Paro. I don’t understand the connection between rain and my travelling to hill stations… 🙂  But I must agree that the hill stations in the Himalayas have a different beauty when it rains.

Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Forces of Nature

The first rule of sustainability is to align with natural forces, or at least not try to defy them.
~ Paul Hawken

 

Rishikonda Beach in Vizag is a place where you’ll see the two opposing forces of nature – the mighty ocean on one side and the rock solid earth on the other – are in constant fight  with each other. During low tide the water recedes giving it a break. And in high tide the water again pounces on the rocks with renewed zeal and force. And years of corrosion have sharpened the boulders and created fissures through the rocky shore. Nature’s force has certainly created notable marks on the stones over the centuries.

Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Afloat

Boating, Naini lake, Nainital , float

Life is a tide; float on it. Go down with it and go up with it, but be detached.
Then it is not difficult. ~ Prem Rawat

When I saw the theme of this week’s Daily Post Photo ChallengeAfloat the first thing came to my mind is ‘water’. I always wanted to learn swimming but somehow never got a chance. So, I envied anyone and anything that I saw floating effortlessly on water. 🙂  I wish I could do that someday. And now when I finally enrolled to a newly opened swimming club in our locality I know how amazing it feels to float on the water and let loose yourself and let the water take you along the flow.

These two pictures are from the album of my Nainital Tour. It was a nice pastime for me to watch the geese swim in their own pace and…
