Photographer's Note

I took this picture on my way to Gurudongmar Lake in North Sikkim.
We had overnight stay at Lachen and started off for Gurudonmar in the early morning. The journey from Lachen to Gurudongmar is worth of an experience filled with natural beauty and beautiful panoramic views of the snow capped peaks.

As one gets closer to Gurudongmar the landscape completely changes and the green pine trees and colorful bushes gives way to baron lands, loads of rocks and dusty roads. The area is completely void of vegetation due to high altitude(more than 17000 feet above sea level) and it causes oxygen deficiency leading to breathing troubles. In the last few kilometers you'll not find any so called road or defined path, the vehicles makes their own path.

Once you reach Gurudongmar the magnificent view of the lake looking like a blue tear drop in the laps of snowy mountains will make you spellbound and you'll truly feel it is in deed a lifetime experience.
