Mystique of Mountains

Mystique of Mountains

Mountains are majestic and irresistible. Linking the plains and plateaus with the skies; reaching out to suspended droplets of water in the clouds and gathering them in glaciers and snow peaks; sheltering the treasures of the sea floor in their crests; cherishing unfathomable secrets in their seductive folds; watching over our planet silently like sentinels, mountains hold out mystery and allure.  Enablers of life on our planet through the thousands of rivers that spring from their wombs, mountains also have immense power to destroy – through the fire they harbour in their volcanic bellies.

Accompany me, as I take you cruising up the winding roads of the Himalaya, to the crest of the Andes in Machupicchu, through the grand ranges of Zanskar, the Hindukush, the Karakorams, the Pamirs, the Caucuses and the Tien Shan ranges.   Drive with me through the pristine forests of Bhutan and Sikkim, the sacred abodes of the gods in Uttarakhand and Himachal and Kashmir, up the cableway to the Tatras in Central Europe and the Blue Mountains in Australia.

This section is all about the comfort of cruising through the mountain ranges. If you want real action, go to the section on Adventures where you can view my treks to Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp, Upper Mustang, Kailash Manasarovar and Amarnath etc.
