Deky,

That was one great travelogue! Very neat narration and a wonderful set of photos to accompany that.

I really wish you had watermarked those photos; they are bound to come up in few other sites without your knowledge!

Hope your mother is doing fine now.

I know, this concern has been raised by another senior member of the forum too. And now its getting me concerned as well.

I definitely would not want the pics or the written matter to be used or abused in any other way than I would want it to.

The sole purpose of this trip log is to help members of Tbhp and guests, who wish to undertake such yatra in future, gather information which may help them in preparation. I do not intend to make any commercial gains out of this and definitely would not want other sites to utilise the photos in commercial or any other way.

Now what do I do to watermark the pics? Can The MODS help me here? I am willing to write this trip log all over again with photos watermarked and then the first thread can be deleted. (i.e.only after i have finished writing, as I also have not stored the written matter anywhere on the disk )

Or just let it be like what it is, and stop over reacting? what do you guys suggest?

Since the deed is done, I would do a +1 to what you said above.

Surely some pictures will be used somewhere or someday down the years. Sudipto-S-Team's Garpanchokot travel photo was used by Telegraph newpaper, Deky add another post out here with this fancy yet smart language like

If it is not going to hurt your conscience or your pocket, you can just let it be. Besides, when you click on the pictures to see the original resolution, those pics are water marked by default.

Without the water marks it will also be difficult for the Chinese to track you down for taking pictures of their infrastructure.

How come some of the pics do not have the 'automatic' T-BHP watermark?

I believe the pictures in their original resolution get water-marked by default. But if the inline image is scaled down then it doesn't get water-marked. You can see this if you click on the inline scaled down image.

You can try uploading a low resolution and a high resolution image and see this effect.

Ok, Thanks for the inputs, I guess I will just let it be for the moment.

Lol, I dont want the Chinese on my head at the moment. I do wish to do this trip once again in the future, and will need a visa from the Chinese.

Hi, it is very good to see the pictures of your trip to mount Kailash. My uncle and aunt recently visited mount Kailash. I happened to visit them today, and saw the photographs that they took. I also got a chance to take a sip of the Manasarovar water. The way they narrated the whole episode was thrilling. I wish even I get a chance to go to mount Kailash, I don't know when this would get materialized. Anyhow, thanks a lot for sharing the photographs. I showed the photographs that you have posted to my parents and they had a virtual darshan of mount Kailash. They are too old to travel but the snaps taken by you have made them feel that they were part of the trip. Thanks a lot for the snaps and beautiful narration of the whole travel.

Hey Deky,

I've been on this forum for the past 3 years. Have never come across such a well written, well detailed and such a interesting Travelogue.

Congratulations and a great job done.

Also, just like Sudev said, some of the stretches of road seen in your pics just make one feel like driving on them.. I won't be surprised if an enthu Yatri strikes a deal with the Toyota drivers one of these days..

All in all, kudos to you and your mom - wishing the best of health and many more such adventures to both of you..
Thank You. I did try asking the driver to let me drive the Toyota for a bit, but he refused, lol!! So we will have to wait to hear someone else do it.

My best wishes to your Mom for a speedy recovery and tell her that she is a very feisty woman and hats off to her for undertaking such a wonderful journey. Hope she is much better now with less pains.
And last but no the least, just one word. Excellent effort man.
Thank You for the wishes, She is much better now. Got another Xray done a few days back and as per the doctore she is on the highway to recovery.

Awesome writeup, experience and resilience Deky.
Hope your mom is fine by now, hats off to the brave lady.

Very informative and quite exhaustive with respect to the information about the yatra. Kudos on a journey of a lifetime.
Thank You. Indeed it was a journey of a life time, but I really wish to do it again through the MEA.

Hope I too will be able to do it sometime in the future & all your inputs would come in handy.
I will be happy if this trip log comes in handy to the community members. Thank You.

Hey man, you just made my day by giving me this thread of hope to cling to. Wish "Hindi-Chini bhai-bhai" thing becomes a reality sometime soon.

I am just trying to imagine a combo trip of Ladakh + Mt.Kailash & Mansarovar + Lahaul & Spiti, pure heaven. My workday has hardly begun and I'm already tripping. *sigh*
