When we reached the top of Hemkund Sahib, it was very cloudy that we couldnt see anything. Suddenly the clouds parted to reveal this magnificent lake.


Everything about HImalayas is in such grand proportion that its difficult to convey the scale of magnitude. Do you see the people at the other end of the lake? Try large on black.

    As if a mirror is placed in the middle.. What if we had got a (more) clear sky?
  • anumodbalan 5y

    wonder if u would have got so much detail on the submerged rocks if u had a bright sky
  • Alosh Bennett 5y

    Yea, its symmetric from the middle :)
    I guess if we had blue sky, all the colours would have come out better. And more reflections too. On the downside, the rocks would not be this clear.

    Beautiful. The magnitude is incredibly large....err, make sense, that statement?
  • Alosh Bennett 5y

    Naveen, though it sounds weird, it makes a lot of sense here :-)
