The road from tashi view point to Phensang was quite terrible because of rains and landslides.

However remote the area may be u can be rest assured that one companion will always be with u that is Indian Army.

After 100 km of journey we reached Chungthang the origin of river Teesta.
And this was an effort to give some relaxation to the whole body :)

DON Any journey uphill has these predicaments. As u will see in next part that though journey was taxing for our body..still what we saw along the route...more than made for it.

Keshi hot pics of ohh so cooooool places :) Wind was really ferocious when we ventured out in those flat terrain the chill they brought along was something I can't forget in all my life. See the next part.

PR Check out the pics of next part of the journey. The most difficult but at the same time the most enthrilling

Really? Do they accompany every vehicle that passes through that area? Or just because they travel often every vehicle finds them? By they, I mean the Indian Army :).

Ok, another complaint - NOT FAIR :(

There is heavy army deployment in that area. They do not escort us but then every now & then u see an army vehicle passing by.
Then there are ARMY checkpost at higher altitudes to chk wheather the passengers going to GuruDongmar are returning safely or not. They also provide medical attention if required.
