The group start their trek at Kunzum Pass (4,551m) in high spirits.
A mountain pass in northern India offers spectacular snow-capped peaks and Tibetan culture plus lots of pain, and pleasure, for those who are willing to trek it.
Trekking, like computer games, can be addictive! So before my knees started to send out more 'warning signals', I set my eyes and mind on conquering Bhapa Pass in Himachal Pradesh, Northern India. Bhapa Pass, also known as Bhaba Pass, lies at an altitude of 4,890m.
We started the trek from Kunzum Pass at 4,551m. Along the way, we stopped at Chandratal Lake, also known as Moon Lake, famed for its crystal clear blue waters set against the majestic snow-capped mountains. The wind was extremely strong and cold and after some quick photos, we continued our journey.
The trail seemed endless. As the day wore on, our steps became heavier as the extended walk took its toll. Despite the wonderful scenery, taking photos was the last thing on our minds. All we wanted was to get to the campsite! And we finally did, after 10 gruelling hours.
