For much of the 19th century, Europe played the Great Game. Explorers vied with each other to map the geographical vastness of Central Asia and understand its people and customs. Knowledge was essential to political success, but Europeans were not welcome everywhere.

A thirst for knowledge and the need for secrecy led to the creation of pandits, a select group of highly educated and brave local men trained in geographical exploration.

Prominent among these was Nain Singh Rawat, born on this day and the first man to survey Tibet, determining the exact location and altitude of Lhasa, mapping the Tsangpo, and describing in mesmerizing detail fabled sites such as the gold mines of Thok Jalung.

Disguised as a Tibetan monk, he walked from his home region of Kumaon to places as far as Kathmandu, Lhasa, and Tawang. He maintained a precisely measured pace, covering one mile in 2000 steps, and measured those steps using a rosary. He hid a compass in his prayer wheel and mercury in cowrie shells and even disguised travel records as prayers.

Throughout its journey, the Bhagirathi or Ganga is seen in various moods – deep and silent in the lower plains and gurgling, tossing, frothing in the middle Himalayas.

But here.. at Gangotri she is singing an ecstatic melody.

The Bhagirathi is different from the Yamuna, the Alaknanda and the Saraswati just because she is Ganga.

"I must feel the crash of the hard water
and gather it up in a perpetual cup
so that, wherever those in prison may be
wherever they suffer the autumn's castigation
I may be there with an errant wave
I may move in and out of windows
and hearing me, eyes may life themselves
asking - How can I reach the sea
And I will pass to them, saying nothing
the starry echoes of the wave
a breaking up of foam and quicksand
a rustling of salt withdrawing itself
the grey cry of sea-birds on the coast

So, through me, freedom and the sea
will call in answer to the shrouded heart" -

Days 25 & 26 : On the way to She Phoksundo

We use the word "gullible" to define a child.
They find it so easy to recklessly hand out their trust to random strangers.
Growing up, without a doubt, is a contrasting story.
We ascend into adulthood and voila!
Find ourselves acknowledging everybody with half-split, suspicion dripping eyes.
Who's to be blamed?
The world doesn't miss a chance to give us one more reason to not trust our own species.
Our shadows become our sole allies.
"Shadow" , as the pupper earned his well-deserved name became our guide on the trek.
You see, having undertaken so many treks, I always encounter a dog on the journey who shows us the way.
Dogs, unlike people, give us every reason to trust them.
Some things just become so special to us on first glance, without even trying.
These angels cannot be a better example.

I have let some of them go . For forever.

Mornings in Himalayas ⛰
Day 1 & 2 : View outside my room.

"Wherever you are, be there totally."

We have a habit of checking our smartphones as soon as we get up in the morning. The reason why I go back to the mountains every couple of months is because once in a while, I like being disconnected with the noise, monotony and the virtual world. The last one week was beautiful. I used to look forward for the morning sunshine every night before sleeping. My hands didn't look for the smartphone & I used to find my body standing right in front of the window feeling the warmth of the fresh sun rays. Sometimes in life, staying disconnected is rejuvenating. Give your body and soul some time to know each other. Let them know the real meaning of peace. Trust me, you'll find yourself at a better place and things will change for the good. And always try to create more than you consume. I try... ☀

Absolute Konkan!

Delightful Konkan journey passes through several small villages with narrow roads and tall coconut trees.

@discover_india : Chittorgarh History: In 1303, the Delhi Sultanate ruler Alauddin Khalji defeated the Guhila king Ratnasimha, and captured the fort. The fort was later captured by Hammir Singh, a king of the Sisodia branch of the Guhilas. Chittor gained prominence during the period of his successors, which included Rana Kumbha and Rana Sanga. In 1535, Bahadur Shah of Gujarat besieged and conquered the fort. After he was driven away by the Mughal Emperor Humayun, the Sisodias regained control of the fort.

"Mountain of Midsummer"「盛夏の山」
The air in the summer mountain is hot and light. Clouds on the ground springed up on this day, and surroundings of Mt. Fuji surrounded a strange cloud. I feel that the storm is getting closer as I feel comfortable.
Shooting date August 19, 2017
Shooting place Mt.yambushidake

盛夏の山の空気は熱く軽い。この日、地上の雲は湧き上がり、富士山の周辺はにわかに妖しい雲が取り囲んだ。落ちつかない様子は嵐が近づいてくるのを感じさせる。

The last couple of months have been quite crazy in terms of travel !

From meeting almost 100 new people to travelling back to back every week;
From living in metropolitan's to a small village with only 20 people;
From full network to no network for days..
From 2500 ft to 15000 ft. ; from hotels to hostels;
And lot more !!
.

Fortunate enough at successful completion of 3rd trip by #travelaffairs
.

Little girl won't stop.. .

Bookworm is a small bookshop next to the post office, away from the buzzing marketplace in Manali.
When you enter the store you'll find the owner, Tenzin Sherap lost in his own paradise of books & enjoying his great collection of music from the 90's.
You'll find books here on everything, Fiction, Non-Fiction, Tibetian Culture, Buddhism, Travelogues, Mountaineering, Old Classics etc. It's like your own happy place to explore.
Also if you have a thing for postcards, you might like their collection on the lifestyle of people in the mountains. I've been their regular customer for quite sometime now and I always make sure to get myself a box of their tibetan incense sticks whenever I'm around.

Next time you're in Manali you know where to go 😁

The View of Skurbuchan from our second field at the end of the village. You need to remove the big stones and pebbles that before you plough the field. There are still traces of snow on the highest peaks which gradually melts by the time all fields of the village i ploughed.
