Waiting for my turn to hit those highs sometime next year.

HVK, your logbooks are insanely amazing!
Sir, that is team work - everyone has done his bit, be it punching GPS, writing down log book entries or keeping track of expenses. Kept all of us busy!

May - terrible month, with holiday crowds from all over NCR and Punjab!
April - only Bombay region is on holiday, the snow is still wet on the ground, flowers peeking out, summer yet to begin.

Reported in Rediff - Sumo accident in Zoji La

11 tourists killed in road accident in Kashmir: Rediff.com India News


Eleven tourists, including two children, were killed in a road accident when the vehicle they were travelling in skidded off the road and fell into a deep gorge on the Zojila pass near a popular north Kashmir [ Images ] health resort in Sonamarg on Sunday evening.

The victims were part of a group of two families hailing from Ahmedabad [ Images ] and were on a vacation in Kashmir.

The two families were traveling in a Tata Sumo taxi on the mountainous Zojila pass, which connects the Kashmir Valley with the cold desert region of Ladakh, when the vehicle went out of control and rolled down.

"The vehicle rolled down several hundred meters into the steep gorge resulting in on-

the-spot death of eleven people. A seven-year-old boy had a miraculous escape and was rescued from the accident spot. He is injured and is being treated at a hospital in Sonamarg," said Imtiyaz Ahmad, district police chief of Ganderbal.

"So far we have recovered bodies of two other children who died in the tragedy," he said.

"The rescue and relief operations are on. The terrain is very difficult to access and mobility in the area is very limited. We are trying our level best to recover other bodies," he added.

Jai Ho!!
Mindless of the trecherous terrains and the inclement weather that they face day-in, day-out; kudos, appreciation and the like seems like such an understatement for what they do. I was so much moved when i was standing in the war-memorial in Kargil and so were Lalu and Glenn.

Nothing can really express the gratitude for the work that they do continually in thankless terrains.

But thank god, though scary and adventorous, we had a nice trek.
...actually it is memories like these that you remember more than the usual "i had great chai in chitkul". You will always remember the "oh boy, such a close shave clambering down the steep thorn-filled mountain" than the "we sat by the baspa river"..and imagine the calories all of us would have lost. You ought to be thanking me profusely...hehe.
