Behind the hills...


I was not searching for any peaks after reaching this point. But by the time I reached the top I had realised how hard mentally it would be to climb it, more than the physical effort. Feat achieved by Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay, the first to reach the summit of Mount Everest dawned before me.

Personally I have been wanting to go up such a hill for years and I happen to do it when the wind chill was almost -40' C. Experience of a lifetime...trip in rope car [called 'Gondola'] 1000 feet above, astounding view of the entire area spread across the mountains...

My list of desired places to visit still has Ley, Ladakh...though it's a practical possibility in the future, as of now I'm contented to keep this for some time...
