Top Photos from July Photography Contest


By Latika Payak

This time the theme of our Photo Contest is Colour Green. It's inspired by the lush hues of monsoon. It is also a colour that's predominant in our monsoon treks in Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir and Uttarakhand.

Till now, we've received more than 500 entries. And out of them, these are our favourites.

Beas Kund, Himachal Pradesh

This is Palchhani Thatch, the first campsite on the Beas Kund trek. Beas Kund is known for its extremely green campsites with backdrop of the jagged Pir Panjal range. This photo perfectly captures the setting.

Bhrigu Lake, Himachal Pradesh

We've spoken about the textured meadows on the Bhrigu Lake trek. But this photo captures how charming they can be, with horses grazing on the soft grass.

Gidara Bugyal, Uttarakhand

There is a reason why Gidara Bugyal is known as the remotest and prettiest meadow. This photo perfectly showcases that reason.

Sandakphu-Phalut Trek, West Bengal

We particularly like this one because it shows the Sandakphu-Phalut trek in a new light. In the monsoon colours of green. It's refreshing!
