Woah man, this is inspiring.

I always look forward to your travelogues. Amazing images, and a beautiful narration. Especially loved the references to a certail village in France

Cheers,
Tapish

Thumbs up Re: Of White-Outs and Landslides

This would be the first time that I'm commenting on a travelogue (or any post, for that matter), before reading it - have seen the pics only yet.

But, the moment I saw the Kiyang and the White Elephant together, i blurted "Oh Teri!" as i knew this was going to be some epic travelogue.

Now that I'm done with the comment, let me run back and read the travelogue -Aaraam Se!

Regards,
Jaspreet Singh

It was great to catch up with you too sir jee. In my opinion it is always easier to catch up with people out of town rather in the same town.

By the way, when is it a good time to do something similar in a 4x2 safari?
Mid-April would have been a good time. There would not have been any snow on the road but plently on the peaks. This year was unusual. Normally by the end of March there's hardly any snow to found on the road - typically whatever is left - is on the peaks.

Excellent and crisp narration with wonderful pics. The snap with the man and the little girl is really cute and very well taken. I am sure you all had a great time and thanks of sharing. More pics are welcome

Hats off to your spirit of adventure, and nice to see the Team -BHP camaradarerie at such remote places.

Your narration and your pictures are fabulous, eagerly waiting for the rest!

Cheers!

P.S. Your title reminds me of the song: Little Talks by 'Of Monsters and Men'. Apt for the travelogue!

Great narration and awesome Pictures!! I had been to Manali earlier in Feb and got to witness very heavy snowfall. The road was closed beyond Palchan. Lucky you, were able to venture till Kothi!

Rated 5 Stars!

Must say its awesome, driving through the Himalayas at night must be some memorable experience. Loved your narration plus your pictures too, specially the night pictures.
Two 4Wds + lots of snow + night driving + Himalaya = Sheer fun! What else do one need to enjoy! And yes rated 5 stars too.

Another excellent log with pics. A little more brief about the black ice & the crossing if possible and did you engage the 4H on a thin sheet of ice on road or it was a few inche of snow. Thanks.

Thats an amazing trip @vardhan.harsh! The log is top notch in all vital departments - adventure/pics/narration
It was lovely to see Kiyang in action in its natural habitat, mountains. Snow being the icing on the mountains. err.. the cake!
Cheers.

Beautiful pictures, excellent narration and French village references. All night drives, 4H, 4L adventures and random & planned meetings in the hills!

This travelogue is different. Refreshing. Inspiring.

Thanks for sharing..

Cheers!

Brilliant as usual. Could you describe the exact spot of that huge rock slide? Characteristic of the stretch beyond Powari though as you crawl on the left shoulder before crossing over to the right side. Which alternate route are you talking about that got closed last year? Plus do you have some of the interior shots of the Gurkhs or a link where they can be seen? Thanks.
PS> Next time you go again to Jalori be sure you have an answer for the Dhaba Owner, the blessings cannot fail can they? lol.

Super narration Harsh. You had me in splits. That backed by some stunning imagery made it all the better.

Rating your thread a thoroughly deserved 5 stars.

Cheers
