Back From The Lesser Himalayas

I am back after several days of hiking in the Mukteshwar area of Uttarakhand. I'll be writing a more geology oriented post in a few days but let me first put up a few photos to give you an idea about the place.

It was beautiful.. there is no other word to describe it.. take a look.

Sunrise over Nanda Devi (extreme left).. height 25,643 feet

Temple on a hill..

Walking trail....

Tea break during a long hike..

A British era cottage...where I was staying..

October hillside.. with cherry blossoms..

The trip was too short...ain't that always the problem with holidays .. :)  There are lots of trails and places I still want to explore. I will definitely be going back.
