I heard about Kaas from a friend of mine about the meadows of flowers one could see.
Its such a coincidence that 2 days later I get to see the pictures of Kaas. Thanks for the great pics, Lalu KS!

Kaas

We woke up and got ready by 05:30 for our trip to the flowers at Kaas. We were all happy like school kids at the idea. We wanted to be there to see the sun rising over Kaas Plateau and its beautiful flowers.

On to the mountains, Full Moon showing us the way
