 After having a treat of all possible sorts ( gourmet, visual, travel ) reached Lachen in our last post here

Next day we were supposed to leave the base early like 3 am as instructed by Mr. Dawa if we wanted to spend some time at Gurudongmar Lake. We were already on road ( whatever was there or was not there) when I gained my senses and I thought I was dreaming.

Snow fall started on the way to Gurudongmar and our trip started to become doubtful but

Viola! I was in for fun and I had to have it all. Like this…

We had to take a halt due to snow fall and there was this small shoppe where we took shelter and warmed ourselves at fire place made in centre of the shoppe. Above picture showing you road or way right outside the shoppe.

I was surprised to see these creature living life amidst this snow.

The Lake, one would just want to look at it for infinite time. The whole landscape is covered with snow but still its beauty is incomparable & unmatchable. There is a spot in lake where water never freezes and it said to be the sacred place.

We spent considerable time given it was chilling cold over there, paid a visit to the Gurudwara and the Monastery which has been made in same compound. Roamed around, there was so much reflection of light here due to white color that not having a pair of shades can be real nightmare for someone.

I went down to lake’s liquid part and spent few minutes there, felt like meditation.

We resume to be on roll but could not help to keep marvelling the beauty of the region

You see this right after Gurudongmar and its stark difference with all the snow we saw.

Keep watching this space for more
