My sentiments precisely. I too enjoy taking photos of the locals and email to those who have some electronic contact, directly or indirectly. Once i had taken some pictures of our BSF at our border and had sent them to the CO ( After editing out any important or identifying bits). But for these people a portable printer would surely bring a smile on their faces.

Great portraits, by the way.


That was awesome.


You surely were lucky to get the last room. And at a nice, unique hotel too.



Could you describe the photography gear you carried?



That was an amazing video. What tyres did you have on the Fortuner?

Thoroughly enjoyed your TR which i read through at one sitting. Great photographs too. One suggestion: If you could upload a map showing the route you took during the 12 days, it would give people like me better understanding of the circuit.

Lastly, i didn't see any time lapse video. Did i miss it or you haven't as yet uploaded it?

A big thank you for sharing that amazing journey.
To answer some of your questions,

1. tyres were original that come with Fortuner.
I have clocked 80,000 km on them, and i would have gone till 90,000 if another road trip had not come up.
So that is when i changed the tyres, and again bought the same brand as original.

2. The first time i got a chance for Time-lapse was at Killar, when i woke to an amazing morning.
I thing you missed the Time-lapse. There are 2 of them.

3. Camera Gear.
Canon 5D Mk3
Canon 7D
Panasonic GH4
Sony NEX7
Hand Held Gimbal for GH4
Canon 17-40L
Canon 24-105L
Canon 100-400L
Samyang 14mm
Sigma 24mm
Tripod.
6 spare memory cards,
3 spare camera batt for Canon Cameras
External HDD which has facility to store images directly from memory card and you don't need a laptop.

Thank you for sharing that. i have to check if i can get a SSD device that can take XQD cards.
Good time lapses. Thought you would take advantage of the dark zone, rarified and pollution free atmosphere, and take some Milky way shots and time lapses.
Actually we were doing too much still and videos on the route itself,
that we always landed up late into the night at the night halt location,
then look for a place for dinner,
but the end just hit the bed.

I will have to do a trip alone or with someone who had time on his hands,
cause then one is not rushed for returning home.

After a fantastic night stay at Sunshine Himalayan Cottages in Tirthan Valley,
and great hospitality of Panki Sood,
we headed to Jalori Pass.
So this is the drive on the way,
Loved the single lane twisting drive, and all the green around us.
