In the last two and a half years, I have done around 20 treks. But the one that stands out is the Bhabha Pass. I did the trek with my himachali friends and believe me, it's a task to keep pace with them. Hesitatingly, I said yes to their plan of completing the trek in 3 days instead of 5. But the mountains disapproved and we could not cross the pass due to bad weather
It rained and snowed for 14 hrs straight and I was literally begging for the Sun God to take over the controls from the Rain God.
This is a pic of the next morning at Kara Lake and those are the first rays of sun, kissing the fresh snow at the peak. It was a sign from the mountains that we can go back now.
You don't conquer a mountain, you cannot. You can only ask for the permission and wait for the sign. Kara Lake, Himachal Pradesh
