Panorama view from Bhabha Pass descent - Himachal Pradesh

Panorama view of the Himalayas during the descent from Bhabha pass on the second day of our Spiti-Kinnaur trek in Himachal Pradesh.

This was the longest and toughest day of the trek. Starting from the first days camp @4050m we crossed the Bhabha Pass @4900m and from there we climbed down to an elevation of around 4100m to reach the evenings camping ground near a place called Kara, covering a distance of 17-18 kms in the process. The ascent to the peak was very difficult due to a snow blizzard, the descent even more difficult and risky due to the fresh slippery snow!

Seen in the right corner of the Panorama is Gopal, my good friend, because of whom we did the Spiti Kinnaur trek.

Killer views. Awesome.

And how come you have so much snow? Was this snow remaining from last winter or was this fresh?

Arun, this photo was captured during the last week of September a few years back. Since you asked, the snow was fresh as it had been snowing all the while when we ascended Bhabha pass.

Its surprising how many photos I have which can be stitched to such beautiful Panoramas – many more to come!
