Washington DC - An architectural grandeur

Washington D.C. is a city all about mega monuments, grand architecture, museums and Potomac River. Some major attractions in the town are the White House, The Capitol, Washington Monument, Lincoln Memorial, War Memorial, national Art Museum, and with Shenandoah National Park not too far away, a quick drive through the park is also a beautiful getaway if you are near in the town.

Some quick snaps (mostly mobile) as we roamed the streets of the Capital.
























A quick visit to Shenandoah National Park happened too!

Himalayan sojourn - Lahaul expedition 2014

Had an opportunity to visit the beautiful Lahaul region in Himachal Pradesh with Bhramanti, a Mumbai based mountaineering club. 

I was part of a team that summitted a virgin peak (Pk 5980m) which we named as Haathi peak after our successful summit bid. Thank you Kaivalya for providing me with such a wonderful opportunity. Following Pk 5980m, the team also summitted Mt. Yunam (6100+m) and  another virgin peak in the same region.
