Late post 😛: A year ago, on Independence Day, a bunch of us made it to the summit of #Stok Kangri (6,153 metres) after a very strenuous climb. A big thanks to my close friend and expedition leader @ankit.naithani and our brilliant guide Ali (@tiptoeladakh) for making this possible. “The summit is what drives us, but the climb itself is what matters” - Conrad Anker
It is easier to feel than to explain.The magnitude of the streams ,rocks, trees and mountains are so delicately harmonized .
Hampta pass trek connect Kullu valley with Lahaul valley at an altitude of 14,100 feet.It is one of the delightful trek in Manali region of Himachal Pradesh. Hampta Pass Trek is a moderate trek with landscape variations from thick forest, lush green grass to barren landscape of Lahaul.

I feel like capturing the behind the scenes of every picture during my cycling trip would be more interesting than the picture itself.
Like this one for example, was taken just a couple of kilometers before Baralacha La Pass.
A day before riding to Sarchu via Baralacha La, I fell sick. I had high fever and all, luckily I got medicines, which made riding this day possible.
So after riding for 14kms from 14,000ft to 16,000ft, I was pretty dead. And this is the spot I decided to lie down as if I own it.
And all these tempo Traveller guys are honking looking at me like the whole road is empty what do you want me to jump into the valley bloody annoying
So I was lying there when I heard this truck honking, so I decided to not get annoyed and take a picture instead cause hashtag instagram, but that was also not that easy, as I had to first remove the earphones, unlock the phone and then get up to frame it (which at that altitude and exhaustion is very difficult trust me)
So me being super lazy after doing so much work decided to lie down and waste five more minutes before continuing cuz thakaan while all these drivers were looking at me as if kisika baccha yahan kho Gaya tha aur pathar ke neeche aake mar Gaya toh B.R.O ne side Mai faik di body
