I love trekking to the remotest corners of the Himalayas (Trekking not mountaineering). I have trekked to several locations in extremely precarious situations. Believe me when I say this though, this is probably one of the toughest trek I have done till date. I look at this mountain every day from my home and it never seems so daunting, until I climbed it.


The views from this place are however absolutely worth it. We had camped here after a really tiring day of trek and decided to explore the place for some Golden landscapes. This place also has a lot of Himalayan Tahrs and since no one had been here in months, we were absolutely sure of sighting them.

Looking for signs of Tahrs, we very carefully and slowly approached this beautiful patch. Painted in gold, the alpine grass looked amazing and I thought, Wow! This can make for an amazing image. Changing my lens to 10-18 mm I began looking for composition, when a section of the grass began to light up. The weather was very cloudy and the light lasted only a few minutes. The peak far in the back was lit up with the light too and combined with the sky, the lush green landscape and bathed in golden light the alpine grass, in my personal opinion makes for an amazing landscape Image. One of the best landscape Images I have personally made till date. The green patch in the center was our camp site, the night before.
