Sojourn into Himachal and within

An impulse decision to travel to the Himalayas happened a while back and armed with confidence, return tickets, maps and a tiny bit of apprehension, Himanshu and I set forth for the Valleys of Eastern Himachal Pradesh following the route attached. The places largely covered were:
  1. Kullu Valley - Manali, Vashisht, Naggar via Jagatsukhi, Mirhi
  2. Lahaul Valley - Rohtang La (3978m), Chandratal, Kunzum La (4551m), Losar, Battal
  3. Spiti Valley - Kaza, Ki Monastery, Kibber, Tabo,
  4. Road from Kaza to Rekong Peo via Hurling, Nako
  5. Kinnaur Valley - Kalpa, Rekong Peo
  6. Sangla Valley - Sangla
  7. Road from Sangla to Shimla via Wangtu, Narkanda & Fagu
A few pictures are uploaded here and while i sit down and combine various little pieces of paper, scribbled upon and put together a coherent story of my experiences, the thought of having been there still is enchanting and magical. To say that it was an experience of a lifetime, would be quite an understatement.

It simply blew me away.
