On way to Kolahoi peak expedition
Moments like these draw me to understanding of who am I?
And as I crossed that bridge and sat at campsite one quote which is learned in my yoga ttc Tat Tvam Asi meaning You are That just made sense !
Self – in its original, pure, primordial state is wholly or partially identifiable with the Ultimate Reality or the Universe, in a limited sense. 
Just as a single drop of water is made of the same qualities as the entire ocean, so does our consciousness have the qualities of God's consciousness, just in a different proportion.So we must not forget we are part of divine...

Magnificence of Spiti valley.
Parang la trek with @spitivalleytours 
From ruggedness of Spiti to lush greenery of Ladakh.Magical experience.
Go with @spitivalleytours  on Independence day batch and have thrill of singing national anthem at the pass on Independence day.
Contact @spitivalleytours for details.
I did Parang la with them last year.Will strongly recommend them.

I wait for winters... solitude,cold and emptiness it brings always fills me with warmth, wonder and bliss..
Trying to play my ukulele on a cold winter morning in Kalpa with @himalayan.hermit who plays awesome :)

Working my way into Scorpion pose!
After doing my Sivananda yoga ttc one thing I learned was to be gentle, patient and consistent with my practice :)
Thankful to tree for giving shade and being a strong support :)

A beautiful lady in village of Mukhba standing in queue with a smile and white parched flowers to adorn Ganga dholi moving towards Gangotri.
Her beauty caught my fancy and everything else felt pale in comparison...
PS: if someone knows name of this flower please let me know

When being you is good enough!
I attract mud,puddles,falls, slippery stones,water splashes,carassing clouds,greens,the withdraw Sun,mud stains on my pants and shoes,rain and sweat in embrace and a conversation with myself ...
Some call my name from back but hey the lost soul is forever lost in the Himalayan mystique...
These are my best friends on hike :)
Walk from Pahalgam to Aru with load before the actual grind!

What did the happy soul say?
It is ephemeral but yet it is everlasting because the memory and feeling is forever.
There are times which come and go like a fleeting bullet but not without springing a cathartic uproar of your heart
Captured during one such moment of bliss...
Tulian peak expedition.
