As we reached Pangong, it was a sad story, clouds every where and it stared snowing. I was depressed, I had only few hours for photography and this is what I got. Anyways I tried to get the best out of clouds . Clouds have its on charm, but not at P Tso :(

BTW none of them are Panos, some are crops

Few more shots with SX4, and then time for those Sea Gull shots

Gang was just crazy looking at the views, it was so rejuvenating even after continuous snowing there.

And SX4 was center of attraction

BTW little story here. That Safari you see in the pics, is actually stuck there. Even after I insisting on dipping the safari in reverse, Varun went in front. Now while reversing it stuck big time. And safari is heavy, very heavy, and it can sink in very fast. Couple of attempt made sure rear tyre sunk nicely and tight.

SX4 was not the car to tow the elephant, so we waved to one Scorpio, and he drove to us. Meanwhile I took out my 3 Ton 5 meter tow rope ready, but was not sure if will manage the beast.

Fortunately in just one go, Scorp could manage to pull the beast out. not much drama.

So this friendly Marmot allowed you to be near to him? Seems like you have taken photo from no distance.

Basically all these marmots are very friendly, and if you are brave enough, you can even pick them up, if approach very slowly. Yes we were very very close and could even watch in side there homes , but then we realized there were multiple small holes around, like snake burrow. So we decided to move to safety

Rajeev. All the adjectives are already exhausted by others. Simply amazing. Everything must have been quite an experience, except, off course, that almost fatal adventure by some gang members. Thank God, all came out unhurt. keep posting more and more pics.

Now that we some interests back in this thread

Hanle Day

Last night everybody was exhausted tired so hanle was remote in everybody's mind except mine. This was kind of bad news. Anyways, first it was time to meet Ajay and Czia, Deepika(a wonderful family living in Leh, from another forum) was busy that day(I met her next day over dinner). I told Ajay the kind of condition people are in and Hanle issue. And he told me to go alone if none is interested. I was very motivated hearing that. We had very good over the coffee discussion and I was all set. I drove upto KC Garden, where rest all were warming there legs, and announced, I AM GOING HANLE, ANYBODY INTERESTED ? Silence for 30 sec, little whispers, and then 6 LOUD AYES . Rock and Roll baby. We are on

Day was bright and sunny, basically you can not judge the condition of whole day with the current condition. it was good enough to rejuvenate all.

And believe me, they would have regret there whole life, just watching the pics. What they saw(and me too) from there popped out eyes and wide open eyes, was the best of the trip

Some of the pics on the way to Hanle
