Hey Som,

Fan of Mt. Everest is it...here are some urls that i find very interesting...

http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/everest/
This gives a 360 degree view of each camp on the summit route. check it out.

The next url is cool too and has interview of Edmund Hillary.

Enjoy !!

Even thought, it was not your snap ( i thought, it may not be yours, , coz it was too good, it is okay. ), it was good.

Hi

“Shrouded in heavy mist, the guardian deity Khangchendzonga or Kanchenjunga both protects and terrifies the inhabitants of the magical kingdom of Sikkim. An awe-inspiring mass of rock clothed in dazzling white snow, this Himalayan giant in the world’s third highest peak at 8,585 m (28,169 ft). The name itself means 'House of Five Treasures’ represented by its five soaring summits…….” http://www.sikkiminfo.net/khangchendzonga.htm

"What's in a name? that we will call a rose, By any other name would smell as sweet." – (Desperately trying to replace the ‘name’ with ‘spelling’ but unable to do it ) ha Ha hA HA…..You are right; I’m a fan of Himalaya and actually very weak in spellings and all.

Thanks a lot for the URLs Aztec. Both the links are very very useful. Friends, we can refer these URLs to our other friends, specially, the “Exposure” part, that could be very helpful to the people planning for high altitude trip.

Thank you once again.

- Somnath

hmmm

i think that the hill stations , especially bhagsu and the area, are definetly at the best in winter. ok so its a touch chilly, but thats no problem as long as you've got a heater. bhagsu is even more beautiful when it snows (therefore masking the concrete development!), and at this time of the year theres very few travellers to disturb the tranquility.
also the monsoon is a great time to be in the mountains, the air feels so electric you can almost grab it, and when you leave your door open the mist and clouds come into your room, theres nothing like it. them thunderstorms that shake the mountains make me feel so alive....
im serious!!!!

Hey Somnath,

Its not soo much abt the spelling. I was just trying to pull ur leg.

Hill stations / himalayas are my favourite too. The fact is that i have not been to many hillstations, as i am south India and himalayas is too far...

This was a difficult choice until I realised I could vote for more than one section so I've ticked three.

Wildlife - great parks all over India, though as I'm mainly interested in birds I find the whole country is interesting, especially the lower jungles of the Himalayas.

Momuments - It would take a lifetime to visit all the temples, forts, palaces, caves and other historical places but I'm still trying to visit as many as possible.

Hill stations - I love the crisper air of the mountain towns and and the slower pace of life there. Which reminds me, I must go back to Dalhousie and see how it has changed in 30 years.

I've chosen three also.
Heritage sites - because I love old forts, palaces etc. But I prefer them when they haven't been overly "restored" which seems to be common these days. The ruins around Hampi are my idea of heaven. Not a fan of the restored ones though.
Hill Stations because I like the mountains and seeing locals on holiday
Other - the desert, or arid regions. Most of my dream travel destinations are very hot dry desolate places for some reason. (though let's not analyse it.)
