Sandakphu is a beautiful trek in the north-east of India, and it’s not often that we come across such pictorial blog posts. This Photo Blog by Subhashis Pal will quickly take you up the trail, with mood-based pictures of the Tea-Houses, lovely villages, glimpses of the Sleeping Buddha and of course the sunsets and star-trails along the Sandakphu Trek.


This blog by Subhashis Pal has won the February 2016 Blog Contest!

Here’s an excerpt:

“I am a PhD student and used to spent my whole day in lab. But one thing often happens with me, whenever I look out through the window, I miss one thing on the skyline, the Mountains.”

Check out the blog here.

Congrats Subhashis Pal! Hope you get to trek more and inspire us more!
