📷 My very first trip to the Himalayas- on the trek we climbed close to 15,000 feet to see Lake Dudh Kunda. As I pushed to the top, I felt the strain of the vigorous hiking of the past few days. A peaceful tranquility surrounded this incredible place deep within the belly of the Himalayas. Cocoa-brown foothills, their slopes sprinkled with snow, ringed a large oval lake with cloudy turquoise water. A gentle clinking, like tiny chimes, was the only sound as the ice broke on the shore. Billowy white clouds, resembling large fluffy cotton balls, floated serenely above in the pale blue sky. Profoundly affected by the peace and beauty of this idyllic scene, I lingered a while after some of the people in my group started down.
