Some people create word pictures. For others, pictures are enough!

This is a beautiful photologue. Some of these clicks are wallpaper material have never been to Kashmir and this is quite inspiring.

I chanced upon this thread at my workplace today and was stumbled upon by the awesome photographs posted in it. I have just one phrase to describe these snaps - they are "out of the world". Brilliant locations, stunningly shot, superbly processed!

The SX4, with its amazing ground clearance and Maruti-Suzuki's far-flung service network, is the apt choice for this kind of a trip. I am glued to this thread and have rated it just 5 stars due to non-availability of a better rating.

Wonderful photographs! The pictures have come out with amazing clarity - including that of the star trail and the Milky Way.
The very first shot of the SX4 is awesome as well.

Please get on with your travelogue and take us through the wonderful journey that you undertook.

Rated 5 stars.

Brilliant photographs! Waiting eagerly for a write up on the trip as well. It will be great if you could include a map. How did the SX4 fare? I have a 2007 SX4 ZXi as well, have done several happy mountain trips with my reliable ally...

Utterly beautiful and serene.

I bet you had a cracker of a time in those meadows admiring the Mother Nature. I can feel the freshness of the air just by looking at these photographs. Keep them coming
Thanks, and Imagine we just covered 10% of Kashmir :P . So much so that we have decided to rethink our September Ladakh trip and Explore North Kashmir.

Hello Rajiv,

Wonderful pictures. Rating the thread with 5 stars is the minimum I can do to appreciate the beautiful pictures here.

Hope you remember that your Kinnaur 2013 thread has motivated me to do a similar circuit next year (2014) but now with this Kashmir travelogue I am confused on where to go next year.

Anyways eagerly waiting for complete set of pictures, your detailed / crisp narration of the places & your experiences.

Thanks,

Heaven, sure everyone wants to see! It's my dream to spend a full month roaming in the northern and eastern india someday with my family in a reliable car. Your travelogue just encourages it So thank you for posting the details and your experience.

I think I too can rely on SX4 to do such stretches! And by the way, your pick of SX4 watching over green and lake is now on Maruti Suzuki's facebook page of SX4.
