Laluks/HVK, class greenery all the way in the last few legs, out of these world, superb captures. Why does Madam Safari lag behind so much in some of the places? Was it intended for matter of photography? Or did it need tackling such terrains more carefully than Scorp (just to understand if the vehicle's behavior is responsible as such)?

We filled fuel at Bhaderwah, and decided to go in search of some computer shops. HVK wanted to transfer data from the SD cards to a DVD since his laptop was refusing to boot. Also Agent Vinod and me went in search of an USB stick to transfer my picture for Agent Vinod.

We parked our cars
, and walked through the narrow roads

Agent Vinod takes very good care of Madam Safari. They both enjoy a liberal dose of RD Burman songs and travel slowly enjoying every small bit of the drive. As you had rightly noticed, it gives me a chance to click Madam Safari as well.

Oh alright, so its a deep love affair, I should have noticed already, stupid me. And with Burman'ization what more can they want in the midst of these lovely landscapes than enjoy the ride together, no wonder they kept the brute Scorp miles away.

Thumbs up Re: Cliffhanger Himachal, Hidden Kashmir and a search for Mughal Ghosts

Wow!!

That is some amazing Greenery all round.

I had resisted the temptation to comment on this thread so as to not break the flow of the log. But seeing such awesome & virgin place I just lost it

Superb captures Lalu and I loved HVK's narration too. Maybe HVK should write travelogues too once in a while and I'm sure he would have dedicated readers like Sam.

Keep going in full steam this a blockbuster log
