Default Safari 2.2 LX VTT-TMT at Tsongmo [Changu] Lake, Sikkim

Safari 2.2 LX VTT-TMT at Tsongmo [Changu] Lake, Sikkim - on a fantastic worse weather day

Pictures from the 6 MP Canon S3 IS . The first picture is at the check permit point enroute to Changu where one gets the permits stamped.


Quote:
Yesterday we travelled to Tsongmo [Changu] Lake after somehow convincing the police for permits. No private vehicle is allowed.

So again a first - the first Safari 2.2 to go to Tsongmo Lake.

Among all the Sumo and Maxx taxis going, Safari VTT-TMT was easily the odd vehicle out, with pvt registration plates and self driven.

As were proceeding, suddenly heavy rain and snowfall and the taxis were not allowed to proceed till the lake. But again by chance VTT was between a Army big truck with snow chains and all and a Army 4wd Gypsy. Thinking that we are a part of convoy they let us through - may be also a remote chance the pseudo-military Cycus Gray colour also helped!! Reached the lake after much sliding from one edge of the road to the other on the bridgestone HT tyres with a rear tyre having one side worn off - a fantastic and equally exhilirating one hell of a rough and slimy road. Later on in between there was break in bad weather and then again some taxis were allowed and again the weather suddenly turned bad and the flow of taxis were restricted once again.

3. Tsongmo Lake in one of the most rough day with snow all through. The whole lake area was completely covered with snow and as we spent the day over there, most of hours snowfall and/or rain was there. But again to go through these kind of weather and come through is another unique experience - absolutely missing on a clear day.

Funny incident happened this Saturday night.

I am driving back one evening with my family on the Beast after attending a function, suddenly a raging Pear white bull comes raging from the left and overtakes me, that too from a wrong side. Few meters later i flash twice at the raging bull, i see a hand coming out and asking me to stop .

Who else can this be with a "LIVE TO DRIVE" sticker behind. Gowda79. and his 2.2 Safari Bull. After 1 year of talking over the phone, we meet for the first time .
