Snapshots from Sikkim : Part III


A small sleepy village Lachen which we left early in the morning for our onward journey to Thangu & Lake GuruDongmar



Weather was cloudy in lachen & it remained so until we crossed Thangu. our hearts erupted with joy when we saw clear blue sky for the first time since morning.



We were now at a height of 16000 feet with no vegetation to speak of. Snow capped peaks, gushing winds, wandering clouds and flat terrain was what we were subjected to in those unforgettable 4 hours of journey.



Hurrah! we have reached our first destination at a height of 17300 ft at this beautiful lake called Gurudongmaar. It was really unbelievable to be at such height.

Only a part of the lake was frozen & we went there to just have a feel for the ice. U can see pics of frozen lake on my other blog.




I got the feel of the song while climbing to that spot
Is jameen se aasman tak............
Main hi Main hoon
Doosra Koyi Nahin Hai :)To see the other pics click on the link below

Very lovely pictures :). How does it feel to be so high up - do you get any breathing troubles or anything? Did you try to climb anyone of those snow-capped mountains :)?
