Previous title: Creepy tree
ok ok, I do admit I click crazy snaps at times, but I loved this one. Its fantastic. It looks like from some … “The Lords of the Ring” scene. Almost whispering .. “Go away”.. ok I better go to sleep now.. Its late.

 

23/03/2009 – I got a lot of compliments for this snap, some posted comments, some emailed me, some even called me. Vinod suggested I changed the name to “The Ent” (google it if you want to see what it means) which fits the description and I feel silly or not thinking about it especially since I mentioned in the blog it reminds me of “The Lords of the Ring”.  Thanks Vinod. I almost can see one branch reach out like an arm. Brr… should not have stood so close to this one.. one never knows…

Almost looks like this one loves to puff a few! Felt I was in paradise… its Rotang pass again. We all made plans to come back to this place again next year and this time do a motorbike expedition as far as we could. This path later leads to “Khardung La” which is the world’s highest motorable road at 18380ft/5600m. But ofcourse… we lazy guys never made this trip.

Kept a timer for this one and exposed it for some few seconds. Its not come as good as I was hoping for but then I am still an amateur what do you expect! The place was this restaurant called “Sea Pebbles” at Dona Paula, its really awesome and a must visit if you are here in Goa

In Kullu. Saw this and could not resist. I know I act silly at times. But I thought it would make a nice wallpaper. Have never used it I must admit.

Near temple dedicated to a demon in Kulu

This was in Kullu, we were near a temple dedicated to a demon (a good one) called Gadotkach who was the son of Bhima the 2nd of the Pandava brothers (of the Mahabharatha, for those who do not know).

I saw snow for the first time at Rohtang pass, although I could not enjoy it much having a broken foot, which meant I could not wear protective shoes. Was sitting in the car while my friends played in the show, asking the chaiwalla (tea guy!) to keep on making trips every 5 mins and serve me hot tea! I just could not bear the cold temperature and the altitude.

Doesn’t it look like a scene from Indiana Jones movie where he is searching for a path to a secret temple high up in the mountains. This pass by the way is suppose to be an ancient trade route. ”Rohtang” derives its name from a Persian word which translates to “pile of dead bodies”, supposedly a very dangerous route.

Although we were in the same country we felt we were in a different part of the world altogether. Apricots, plums, cherries, strawberries. We ate so much, very sweet and you dont get them in Goa. I remember we got a big box of cherries and within 2 days it was all over. Hmm.. I blame Rutuja for eating the maximum.

Dont remember ever getting up very early during work days, but this was a holiday, we started dead early to go to Rotang pass. We stopped at a place for hot tea, I think it was me, screaming for it as it was unbearably cold.

We finally reached Manali, and rushed to our rooms, The windows were huge and the view from the place was awesome. And we cheepos managed to get this awesome place, very clean and good food, for just Rs 4 per day (to translate it in other currencies Rs 4 = £ 0.05 = 0.06€ = $0.08), its a guest house and hence the rates were subsidized.
