The Himalayas

Its been five months since I did this trek to Sarpass near Kullu in the Himalayas and I am still stuck with that feeling of adventure, freshness and the madness that only the sight of Himalayas can inject into you. It was my first of lot-more-to-come treks of the Himalayas. For somebody who was always mesmerized by the beauty of the western ghats, the himalayas is a totally different experience that comes with unbounded natural beauty and great adventure. Himalayas is something that is to be experienced and not explained.

People say that a picture tells a thousand words. So lets cut the story short and enjoy a few pics of the trek.
