Winner

When the mountains called by Binu Sivan – Deoriatal

Here’s an excerpt:

“The peaks looming above me, the evergreens towering over me, the mist, the rain, the greenery… everything. These were not the gentle, green rolling hills and mountains of the south. These were not the perfect snowy slopes of Jungfrau and Rigi. This was a different beast altogether. Wild, untamed, verdant, stark and edgy they called to my soul in a way no other place ever has. The mountains didn’t just call. They screamed.”

A date with the Yeti by Gaurav Sen – Kedarkantha

Here’s an excerpt:

“Time to become a cleaning hero. I chipped off ice using karate kicks. Slow, tiring work. “There better be a cleaning award for this”, I thought. But a few seconds later, awards were out of my mind. No award was special enough for a guy at 12000 ft to collect trash. I do this only for the mountain.”
