Chanshal Pass, Himachal Pradesh, India, 16 December 2016, 1415 hours:
As we drove towards Chanshal Pass, the cloudy skies kept worrying us. We couldn’t afford to get snowed-in and be stuck in Chanshal valley till the weather cleared up. Luck, however, was in our favour and by the time we reached the top of Chanshal Pass, the sky had cleared up again. This also meant that we got clearer views of the amazing sights all around, with cold winds blowing in constantly from the south-west. Though my hands were getting cold while clicking the pictures, the views were just too irresistible and kept me latched on.
