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.

For someone who loves hill & mountains, being in Florida is not the best situation.
