“They wait for the twilight to betray themselves. Armed with lethal weapons they attack quietly on unassuming grazers in semi darkness, with ruthless precision and predatory power. The enemy is killed and consumed”.

The night was setting in on our high altitude campsite at Thachungtse, Ladakh. All the tired feet were ready for a dinner.

Mountains have always mystified mankind. Venerated as gods and goddesses, worshipped through centuries, they continue to challenge man’s indomitable spirit to conquer nature. The great mountaineer Mallory, asked why he wanted to climb the world’s highest mountain, gave his legendary answer: “Because it is there!” The reality is that he gave his life in the attempt.

Could God be called an artist? Or are these mountains entirely accidents of Nature? How could one account for these mountains sculpted into such wondrous shapes? How is it that man’s wonderment of their magnitude goes along with his appreciation of such breathtaking views? The mesmerizing beauty and magnificence of the Himalayas cannot be captured in words that remain forever inadequate.

Why Should You Try ‘Local’ Cuisine? In recent years, we have witnessed a social phenomenon around a hobby. “Traveling” is the new public obsession. That’s the word in the market. And social media, in its humble way, has already marked travelers to be the new “cool”. And as expected, in India, there has been a surge of travelers or even better put, ‘wanderlust’ – the urge to see new places.
