Great going!

I believe the most interesting part of the expedition begins now from Chitkul. Eagerly waiting to read and see more.

HVK's travel log is amazing in detail.
@HVK, Did you logged the things on Laptop as you traveled or took notes and later transferred or done with GPS logger?

This will be great treasure for any group taking that route in future.

Wonderful pics there JC, LaluKS, akaush!!

The drive from Rampur to Chitkul was the start of the test of my driving skills. I've never done a proper hill drive before this!!
That being the case, this whole stretch was - for me - all drive and no photography!!

After a good night's rest on the 14th, I woke up to this sight on the morning of Independence Day:
HumbLeh'd II (Indo Polish Himalayan Expedition to Ladakh & Himachal Pradesh)-1.jpg

Something hiding behind the clouds on the above pic - and this was it! My first sight of a snow-clad peak. EVER!! Totally loved it!!
HumbLeh'd II (Indo Polish Himalayan Expedition to Ladakh & Himachal Pradesh)-2.jpg

Another peak towering above us, above the clouds - yet, enveloped by clouds that rose higher still!
HumbLeh'd II (Indo Polish Himalayan Expedition to Ladakh & Himachal Pradesh)-3.jpg

I waited in BM's room while he had a bath in the ice-cold water that flowed in our taps!! Found this light there interesting, and 'click'!

We then went down to the river and stopped for some more photographs::

Day 04
15th August 2011
Chitkul - Pooh

By 08:30 we started from Chitkul. I was feeling very sad to leave Chitkul and my friends SJ_Koova and Glenn. In our earlier plans we were staying one day at Chitkul, and because of that my friends also made a plan to synchronise at Chitkul. But we had to leave. In hindsight it was a good decision, since there were some landslides the next day nearby blocking traffic for almost a day.

Some pictures from the drive till Sangla.

By 11:45hrs we drove towards Kalpa. We were very optimistic in trying to get a glimpse of Kinner Kailash, though it was raining through out and was overcast. Called up Jeep Captain not to come towards Powari and wait for us at Reckong Peo after picking up TS.

I have wished to get some time to click some more pictures here. But had to be confined the front seat, since we had to meet Jeep Captain on time. But will we be ever in Reckong Peo again on an Independence day? A few minutes ....In hindsight we spent lot more waiting else where.

But in the Independence day crowd, we were missed Jeep Captain and we were already on the road to Kalpa.



This guy seems not to be bothered by anything around. He is an observer.
