The Lord Curzon stretch around Kuari Pass was still reeling from the unlikely vigorous snow of mid-March when we reached Gulling Top near the end of last month.
As the Pangarchulla trek in May ended up making me crave more for a more intensive trek, I started looking for a more intensive and longer trek than the one just done. I considered various options and finally decided on the Parang La trek, which is a crossover from Spiti to Ladakh. I was in touch with Suman of Himalayan High for this trek and he formed a Facebook group of possible participants. A couple of us paid the token booking amount as well but finally the plan had to be cancelled due to lack of enough people (primary reason being increasing share of costs of two of us who were confirmed).
Far away, over the misty mountains cold,
We embarked on our journey enroute winding roads.
Up the hills, down the valleys, confluence of babbling brook passing by,
Excitement set in, higher than the azure sky.
