Got it. Said to be a difficult trek.

Yep, the altitude gain here would not be permitted on any other trek!

You can also see this there.

(I may have posted this before - as a separate puzzle)

I had meant to mention Major General Harkirat Singh and Siali luddu in the previous post as proof of principle. But as I lack principles in the first place and hadn't yet come upon their names anyway (which should really mess with your mind) I didn't.

That is too obvious, and following the tradition of this thread, I will not name it until the very last person on this planet has a chance to solve it
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

I know, that is a messed up tradition..

So as with the previous puzzle, I do declare this close..

The two gentleman mentioned happen to be the people responsible for building the highest gurudwara in the world and the only one in the shape of a pentagon.

Sri Hemkunt Sahib - the puzzle place.
Lakshman Mandir the last photo.

So well done hfot2 and thank you jituyadav for prodding it to its conclusion.

Puzzle over.

Traditions often spring from good intentions. Sometimes they outlive their usefulness.

In this case, long ago and far away in the history of WWTPT(2), there were a great many players in furious competition. But most of the puzzles were being solved by two or three players with good search skills and more important enough time on their hands to find the answers faster than others. It seemed unfair that they should hog all the prizes, and the habit of answering cryptically to leave the puzzle open for others grew up.

Whether the tradition should continue is debatable. There is rarely any fevered competition any longer. Perhaps people now have only the meagerest curiosity about the puzzle places and simply wish that someone would solve the damned thing and be done with it. If WWTPT(2) has come to that, sic transit gloria mundi.

I think it is an individual choice to name a puzzle solution or not. A lot of people look at the puzzle but do not participate.

Folks, even though English may have had it's roots in Latin - we would prefer the final product..

And since you really want me to continue - the next one!

Interesting top see that you are experimenting with overexposure. It's a fitting complement to your black-as-midnight series.

Is this in Pune?
