Ever since i was a kid, i always had the fascination for mountains and snow capped peaks. I always used to dream of such places and imagine how it would be to touch the snow and frozen ice. My dream came true in 1997 when i planned a trip to the north Indian state of Himachal. After staying in Manali for a couple of days, i headed towards Rohtang pass, one of the highest himalayan mountain passes in India at the altitude of around 14000ft from sea level. I was left completely dumbstruck by the amazing beauty of the place. It was like walking on a bridge on top of the world. The mighty Himalayan ranges were much bigger than my imagination. Surrounded amidst ice and gigantic snow clad peaks, i felt being in heaven. It was an out of the world feeling and an experience to behold. Here are a few pics i took in Manali and Rohtang pass though i feel no camera can ever capture the sheer grandeur of Himalayas or even the untouched beauty that lies there in abundance. You've got to see it to believe it!!
