By the time we got to the Phewa Lake, we did not get to see the amazing reflections, thanks to the earthquakes and landslides that occurred a few weeks earlier.

Day 2 of our road trip to Leh, and we wake to the sun-kissed clouds at Sarchu. The first rays of sunlight make their presence felt over the huge mountains, who stood guard over us during the cold night.
Day 4 of our trip to the Valley of Flowers and we found ourselves at Gobind Ghat. From there it was around a 15 kilometer trek to Gangria, which took us roughly 7 hours to complete. The air was pristine, views were spectacular and the trek was painstakingly slow thanks to the lack of oxygen.
Sometime around May in 2010 my buddies and I did a road trip across a few states in the North East of India. We found ourselves playing cricket with the army guys posted somewhere at the Indo-China border and later on headed off to the Madhuri Lake. The lake is also known as Shungetser Tso.
Travelling around India over the past few years, gave me the opportunity to witness a ton of sunsets. A bunch of sunrises too, but then you know how lazy I could get sometimes, especially when I have to wake up early in the morning. I’ve wintnessed sunsets at Jammu & Kashmir, Kanyakumari, Arunachal Pradesh and Goa. That basically takes care of North, South, East and West. Okay, maybe I need to witness a sunset at Gujarat, then I would be able to tick off the Extreme West. Bottom line is, I’ve seen a ton of sunsets, and I’ve put them all here for your viewing pleasure, in no particular order, with a short snippet of each evening.
We were on our way to Srinagar and had to make our way past the Zoji La. These are photos shot before we started the long journey through the crazy terrain of the Zoji La (also known as the Zoji La Pass). The landscape was out of the world. Jammu and Kashmir truly living up to being a paradise on earth.

While making our way from Sarchu to Ladakh, we encountered dust storms, rain, hail and snow. It was amazing feeling, getting to experience the different forces of nature in the span of a few hours. Not only did the weather keep changing, but so did the landscape. The mountains kept changing color as we made our way through the valleys.
