Photo Journey | Across the Rohtang Pass – Lahaul Winters, 2013

“If you want to learn the art of loving a pile of rock, talking to boulders, and enjoy nothingness; come to the Himalayas”

Rohtang in winters is bliss. If it was humanely possible, I would have lived there during winters.

I have made it a habit to cross this pass in the winters. So far I have done this twice and I wish to continue this trend forever. While last year I stayed in Keylong just for few hours, this year I got a chance to live in Lahaul winters for a couple of days. You can read the blog post here. Here I will share pictures of Rohtang and Lahaul winters with you.

Hope you will like them.

This man acted smart and lost his way. He had to climb on a stretch of soft ice on a steep slope
