Tanveer - its a good idea to get a ice scraper when you head to US next. Just might come in handy if these is tough ice on the windshield in the morning. I keep a couple of bottles of the aforementioned deicer along with a snow brush cum scraper in the trunk. But then I live in Canada.

Somehow the pictures looked oh so familiar (killer scenery though!) - Am mentally preparing myself for the next 4 months!
Where I go, max it goes down to is -2/-3 so snow scraping is never an issue.
Hands do it well

Reading you trip logs is day by day increasing my desire (like others) to own a 4X4

You can get snow chains from Himalayan Motorsport Simla. They have made it mandatory for all participants of the Raid to carry them and those who want them can buy it from them.

Thumbs up

Hey Tanveer,
Amazing travelogue. Beautiful pictures!
You are one good guy to have that beast and use it for the right purpose.
By reading and looking at the pictures I can imagine that being there must have felt out of this world.
Simply great!

BTW what camera did you use for taking the pictures?

Tanveer, each of your travelogues is a heady cocktail of excellent narration, great locations and out of the world photography. This one is such a cocktail on the rocks, shaken not stirred!

Default speechless and spellbound !

Awesome Tanveer ! I am speechless and spellbound !

Couldn't believe that I spent 3 hours on a friday morning in office and read the entire thread in one shot

Can't wait to get back to Chandigarh next year and start exploring Himachal and Kashmir.

As usual, Tanveer takes me to places which I miss most, the Himalayas. Tons (weight of your elephant) of thanks for sharing. Keep it going.

BTW, what remains to be conquered in Himalayas, I mean, what's next?

thanks for your comments everyone. As Rudra mentioned, I use 350D. I use it with the 18-55(non IS) kit lens, and for the IR shots I use the 50mm 1.8 lens
With my 75-300, I do little shooting

Default Safari simply refuses to age !

This thread one again triggered that dormant desire to own a 4x4 white elephant just as it did for for many others on this forum ... Reminds me of ''Safari Dreams'' which many of us have grown up with during our college days ..... IMHO i havent seen such an extremely VFM SUV which is as elegant yet a mean machine as Safari even in US ..... Wonder how TATA came up with such an amazing design way back in 1998 (those small issues are worth owning it) .... The design simply refuses to age .... Totally different from usual PAJEROish and CRVish designs even though personally I love these vehicles too and I know these are in alltogether different class ... (So no offense meant to anyone)

Awesome Tanveer, out of the world stuff. Hats Off! to you and your wife. You are true adventurers.

PS: Your travelogue of "5000kms,12 passes" and Suman's travelogue "Better Lehed than never" cleared any apprehensions I had about Safari 4 x 4.

Good travelogue TSK. and beautiful pics too.

Now i am going crazy! I am getting so fascinated by photography, and crazier about going to a snow filled destination. Not sure that will be in May or coming September but thats definitely on my cards.

All the superlatives have already been said already so there is nothing left to say. Simply mindblowing. All your travelogues make us wish we were living up in north. Sigh!

Thanks again for sharing this wonderful stuff.

Thanks guys. Glad you liked the pics or narration. May is a good time to head to Rohtang, and you will definitely get snow on the pass!
