Beautiful thread Sayak, the photographs have been a real treat to the eyes. I just loved the way you have presented the write-up. The narration kept me glued to the travelogue, rated 5 stars.

Wonderful Travelogue Sayakc. The pictures are mindblowing. I think this is the best time if one wants to see rhododendrons in full bloom. The trek to Sandakphu & Phalut look so lovely through your lens. Did you camp or stay at Sherpa Chalet ?

Regards

Thank you Gearhead! Just like you mention about the treks to your friend, I mention about your gutsy trips in your Eon to far fetched places!

Thank you so much PravStar. Sandakphu is beautiful no doubt, but I will say its the Himalayas that are even greater.

Dear Samba,
I owe you a long reply in fact!
Thank you for your comments and rating. I hardly get to travel - may be once or twice a year.
The frequency of your travels have kept on increasing and thats a treat for us and I believe the Himalayas are the common factor between our travels. They seem to pull us

Dear Hemanth,
Thank you so much for your appreciation. Kids never understand and back in those days I too never understood what dad was saying. Sometimes I feel that the city life has taken a slice of nature away from us.

I seem to be telling the same thing to my young daughter and who obviously doesn't seem to listen to me

Dear Anurag,
Believe me Anurag, when I saw your name, I had the same gut feeling too! And yes, you prove that the world is small. I keep visiting Cooch Behar twice/thrice a year. If you ever happen to drop by Calcutta, do let me know, would like to catch up. Good ol' school memories. Miss them!

Dear Himadri,
Himadri-da, more apt
Glad that stalwarts like you loved it! Whenever I meet a person with interest in bird photography, I direct that person rightaway to your thread. An awesome collection!

Dear Pawan,
April in indeed the time for flowers and they look really beautiful. In fact, I wanted to retrace the trek which we did in '01. Now, here is a personal take - The longer duration of a trek allows you to enjoy the beauty. Because these are visual delights (an award sort of!) for the trekker.

Yes, at Sandakphu we stayed at Sherpa Chalet. There is a camping ground around a half an hour walk from Sandakphu.

This thread is sheer beauty. Bookmarked it and opening the "Money" thread to read tonight.
Honestly I never knew such places exist and now and wanderlusting to do this trek.
I would be really grateful if u can you suggest how/if this trek can be done (husband & wife) from Bangalore and how many days it would take ?
