There was a lot of drama in today’s sky but I driving back home at that time. By the time I reached home the skies were quieter. So I fall back on my trek pictures once again! I need not say which trek.
This is the majestic Ama Dablam as seen from Dingboche in Nepal. I was here as I was trekking up to the Everest Base Camp. The place is accessible by foot only. I remember asking my guide if the locals would prefer a road through the region. His response was that it would destroy the tourism in the region and hence the livelihoods.
I took this shot early in the morning and in spite of wearing a down jacket I was frozen solid after a while. But what beautiful days those were!

I am Mridula Dwivedi and I started blogging on 'Travel Tales from India' in June 2005. Within a few months of the launch my travel blog found a mention on both the BBC and The Guardian. I also featured in a National Geographic Skoda Yeti Video.
I quit my job as a professor in May 2015. I am having a blast ever since. I do not miss my work but sometime I do miss my salary! Somewhere along the journey I ended up acquiring a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur! I now wonder why?
