A Moment of Respite from the Summer

People who have been following my blog for some time will know that deep down, I am an adventure-loving person.(if you are new here, you might want to have a look at this post). I adore adventure, as long as it happens to other people and they send me photographs later.

My buddy
Bokom and his friends Madhusree, Barnali, Soumi, Debpriya, Dipankar, Arnab, and Frah went all the way to Sandakfu so that I may sit in my office cubicle and drool over these fantastic photographs .I thought it would be good to share them with those of you who are being baked brown by the Indian summer and who cannot do more than hallucinate about sunkissed snowy peaks, ice-cold mountain brooks, and pine trees sparking in a sudden shower.

For your information, Sandakfu, located near the bengal-sikkim border, is the tallest peak in West Bengal. The tiny brook you can see in some pictures is called Srikhola (khola meaning river). Photographs have been taken by
Mainak, a.k.a Bokom.

Happy trekking :)

Lovely description. These pics are just beautiful. I spent my early 12 years near that place.
I'hv marked that place in my picasa web album in the side bar.

That's exactly why I can speak bengali while I'm not a bengali. The culture around there is a kind of mixture of W.Bengal, Sikkim and Nepal.
Great photo work Mainak. I truly enjoyed, got some momeries of my childhood afresh, I miss these mountains here in Delhi. So thank you both, little girl and mainak. :)

Hey, LGL, just wanted to say thanks for your last comment on my blog--it was awesome--not sure if you saw that before I took the whole thing down. What a huge ass pain!

Anyway, am still taking a break from blogging, but I am definitely still reading. My mood isn't quite as black and sour as jamun but still. ;)

Take care!
Jennifer
