I'd give all the money in my account to be there right now! That place is my heaven on earth.

Beautiful and clear today in the fore-noon, Bandarpunchh and Swargarohini look as if in touching distance. Altho Bandarpunchh looks a bit under-clad snow-wise. By evening there were clouds rolling up from Dehradun! 20.5 C by day, 11 C by night, in other words a normal October day. Cheers.

Sunbean who is currently here, has asked if any IM'ers who are in Mussoorie/Landour at the moment would like a Meet Up? I'm suggesting Anil's Cafe at Char Dukan one day later this week - Thurs. Fri. Sat etc.?? Anytime suits me - others could name a time and day to suit.
Every cloud has a silver lining!

Best times for me: this week, either Tuesday, after 17:40 (after my last class at LLS), Char Dukan would be good, or on Wednesday, before 15:10 (my first class at LLS) or after 17:40. On Thursday we return to Dehradun and Delhi. I visited Wolfsburn but Aishah wasn't yet there then. I've spent much more time in Sanji village with friends than I've expected - it's warmer and dryer there, anyway.

How about this Wednesday from 1.30 p.m. at Anil's Cafe?This would give you plenty of time to walk around to Language School, Ploink. Yes, I arrived here just a week ago - hopefully Sunbean can join us then? And any others up here at same time...

Oh, plus another two occasions.
I shud be there, but I won't be. Too much going on this week.
Was intending to head to Kumaon via Muss, but doesn't look like it's happening. Maybe the reverse direction next week, if things work out.

IM Meet Up in Landour

Bad luck, Dilliwala - maybe next week... If you are able to come via this way do let us know and for sure we will have a get-together. I think you have many interesting stories about this area up here, and around.. Last night the haze cleared for just a short time to give those glimpses of the far ranges. My friend asked me what were their names, I couldn't tell her, but I think you might know! Any news from Sunbean? Can you make it tomorrow??

That one straight ahead, with the double peaks and looking like a long saddle, is the Bandarpunchh massif, i.e. BP and BP West. The one to its left, with the jagged edges, is Swargarohini. *
To the extreme, extreme left, as far as the eye can see, are the Kinnaur ranges of HP.
If you cud see far to the east, the long flat top is Chaukhamba (Badrinath peaks). **
Between Bandarpunchh and Chaukhamba are other peaks like Kedarnath, Jaonli, etc. but I never know which is which! Must remember to carry my survey map of peaks next time.

* Here's a very good shot of the two:

** Not quite the correct angle, butr a fair approximation of the view you wud get from Muss (this one's much closer, from Rudraprayag):

Sorry...
I have to visit a friend in Landour bazaar tomorrow at 13:00, she really wants us to have lunch with her in her house, and tomorrow is the only option. We spent so much time in Sanji but it was lovely there, a lovely village.

I might be able to reach Char Dukan around 2:00, or by 2:30, on the way to school. I'm blonde, I wear a blue scarf, and a Fabindia kurta (my fav shop...) and walk with Mr. ploink, so if you spot us looking for you...

Will be there around 2.00 p.m.- Sunbean, or any others able to come. By good fortune, already met ploink and Mr P. and they will be there too! Hope weather is fine - it's very unpredictable at the moment.
Dilliwala - many thanks for that will pass this onto my friend, will take a look at your links when I'm on Broadband at Char Dukan (GPRS Mobile at the moment). Yesterday we walked around to Binocular Complex, and some very good views of far distant ranges but tooo hazy for real clarity. They were poking up above the clouds.

Later - opened your photos, Dilliwala - very nice and informative, now we know what to look out for if the clouds lift properly on a clear day! Stunning views.

Well, it was just Aishah, Mr. ploink and me at Char Dukan today - if other IMers are in Landour (and there are other IMers here, I believe), the meeting may have been to soon for them to check their email. I and Mr. ploink return to Delhi tomorrow, but to all IMers in Landour, enjoy your time here, and I hope Landour will not be in clouds all the time!

I see the thread lost its name - pity, I preferred it, if only that it left out THAT word at the end , without which no one seems to be able to get together nowadays.

Now I'l probably catch flak from Aishah who must have changed it in the first place.
