Yesterday I gave you Part 1 of my expedition to India. Below are some photos taken during the 2 week trekking phase in the magnificent Himalayas, reaching an altitude of 5500m!
These photos speak for themselves really, so I’ll steer clear of writing too much and leave you to them.
Real Nomads – Yak Farmers
Our wonderful local guide.
After our trekking phase we headed back on the long journey to Mananli via a landslide on the only road out of the Himalayas. With the landslide blocking the road causing long tailbacks we had no option but to wait it out. Having dreamt of a bed and a shower for the past 2 weeks a sleep in a bus was not welcomed!
In the morning, and with the landslide still not cleared, we took our bags with us and headed down the slope ourselves to be picked up by another bus.
fter a night in Manali we headed to Delhi in preparation for a trip to Agra to see the Taj Mahal.
The Taj Mahal really was the most amazing experience. The pictures don’t even come close to the beauty and intricacy of the building. If you ever visit make the most of a tour around the gardens to find out more about the history and hidden patterns.
Have you ever been? I’d love to hear about your experiences or answer any questions you may have. Leave me a comment!
