Pictures from Travel Diary #7

This entry in the travel diary is one of the most unforgettable journeys – to the desert valley of the mighty Himalayas and to the lake of moon – Chandrataal (visited in September-October 2014).

I traveled and brought back with me the happy memories of blue skies, dusty brown mountains – some flaunting their snowy peaks, kindest people with warm smiles, scary and difficult roads, exhausting trek in dirt (no-tar) roads, camping in sub zero temperature, surreal landscape, cold mountain winds, night sky of zillion stars, musing meadows, mesmerizing blue-green waters of the lake of moon – their colors changing, casting spells and mirroring everything that touched it.

Left my heart behind in those mountains — left to return soon, very soon!
