PHOTO CONTEST WINNER!
The colors are no less than magical but the best thing about this photo is it’s composition. This flat space on the way to Balu ka Gera with a touch of pink makes it look like it’s straight out of a fairy tale! The element of life in the picture adds to it’s serenity. Perfectly framed! We love it!

1st Runner Up
What a perfectly timing! The lighting is amazing as it beautifully captures the rising dust. Yaks are not very friendly creatures and wild yaks can be dangerous which makes this photo very brave. An excellent action shot.

2nd Runner Up
This wide angle shot shows the enormity of the Nandkol lake by comparing it with the campsite. The clouds settling on Mount Harmukh in the background add to the drama.

Every trekker who goes to Hampta Pass comes back with wonderful pictures of Chandratal Lake. This photo beautifully captures the oft overlooked route taken to the lake. The play of shadows give rocky mountains look like sheaths of raw silk!

What a great action shot! Stream crossings are everywhere on the Hampta Pass trek. It’s like hopping from one page of a book to another. In this picture you see the change in scenery from coniferous forests to scattered birch trees. A wonderfully captured action shot.

The view ahead from Pin Parvati pass leaves trekkers dumbfounded. How would you feel if you came across such a landscape after days of walking through the parched Spiti valley?
