The Mountain Walker Diaries: Himalaya Calls Again

Bhatan Tunnel, Pune-Mumbai Expressway, Maharashtra, March 25, 2018:

It’s been a looooong while but am finally back on the road to the Himalayas.

We started a couple of hours ago from a sweltering 37 degrees C Pune and are now passing through Bhatan Tunnel near Sarvoli on the Expressway- it’s 42 degrees and oven hot! (wonder what Mumbai has in store).

Check out this view of the hot wind blowing across the expressway.
