    heartful thanks my dear friends for so many kind words... it feels gratifying to have such big words :) we really had some trying times but Himalayan gods have always been kind to us...

    Amazing photos and journey, the challenging weather must have made it heck difficult but congratz to you guys for making it. Photography must have been another challenge in rain. What did you do to protect the cameras?

    thank you Urvashi, am glad to have your views :)
    thanks abhi, yess we had some trying times for rough weather... but the experience came to help :) most of the times our camera was inside and whenever it came out it was well covered... also we had umbrellas.. :D

    shukriya dost, greenery cant be better for sure and for that only we selected this period... :D
    Bhram kamal dekhne ke liye hi to humne monsoon time select kiya thaa jack :)
    yess the last stretch was very torturing but our past experience and determination came to rescue :cool:

    Tilak bhai,well deserved update after a long tome.:)
    Last pic steals the show,very interesting and well composed.
    I guess,your lens had fingerprints at the time of shooting.
