Photographer's Note

Hellllllooooo Friends,

How have you all being..I am back after a good two years...have been thinking about it for sometime now ..and today I am back..!!!!

Now I will be regular at TE except for the times when I am in the mountains.

This photograph was taken while going for the Goecha la Trek at the very base of Mt kanchendzonga(the third highest peak in the world)

Goecha La (el. 4940 m.) is a high mountain pass in Sikkim, India in the Himalaya range.
The southeast face of Kanchenjunga, the world's third highest mountain, is viewable from the pass, which is also a base camp for those aspiring to scale the mountain.
The trek to Goecha La starts in Yuksom, where the motorable road ends at an altitude of 1770 meters. It takes approximately seven and a half days to reach Goecha la and return to Yuksom. Key halting points are Sachen, Bakkhim, Tshoka, Phedang, Dzongri, Kokchurong,Thansing and Lamuney. The initial days of the trek proceeds through dense forest cover, enters bugyals, and ends in rocky terrain. The trek is highlighted by the presence of rhododendrons of various colours during the month of may.

This shot was taken near Prek Chu Bridge which is the forth bridge after starting the trek afterwhich the trek becomes real steep...this is the first time in my last 25 visits to this place that I took the initiative of going down to the river and taking a slow shutter of the water flowing.....!!
