Chermanna Achappa – Roopkund

The photo captures the drama and life of high altitude trekking splendidly. The desolate landscape battered by the snow storm is magnified by the trekker struggling with his clothes. It is a wonderful composition taken in difficult conditions.

1st Runner Up

Sreejith N – Goechala

For the early morning capture of the Kanchenjunga ranges. Many trekkers try to capture this moment, but getting the golden colours right, yet keeping details of the foreground intact requires special skills. Seen on a big screen, it makes anyone seeing the photo want to be there.

2nd Runner Up

Kunal Roy – Roopkund

The Bhagwabasa camp above many feet of snow, with its colourful ensemble of tents, yet deserted, captures the mood of the setting very well. It requires a special composition to get this moment caught on camera. Kunal deserves a pat for showing a unique perspective of Bhagwabasa rarely captured on camera.
