There is everything about the Himalayas that attracts me towards them! I am lucky that I have been to Nepal, Bhutan and of course explored the Indian Himalayas as well. Trekking is my favorite way to see the grand mountain range. But I am always happy to be there! And the Himalayan sky paint a grand picture every time!
But even if I cannot trek, I am just happy to be there. Like the time when I went to Palampur (Himachal Pradesh, India) on a solo trip! I did a homestay and explored the nearby areas of Baijnath and Bir. And at all points I felt safe. I would get home by the evening and no one ever bothered me during the daytime.
This gorgeous picture was taken in Bhutan. When I came back from Bhutan I missed it so much, it felt like I was having a hangover! There is something about Bhutan that makes you feel that you have stepped back in time! It is a country that has no McDonalds and only one airline! The scenery is to die for! It is mandatory to spend 250 dollars per night per person if you wish to visit Bhutan but luckily this rule doesn’t apply to Indians!
Nepal is a place where I completely feel at home! While I was trekking on the Annapurna Circuit Trek in Nepal, all I got was rains and then snow. I had to give up on the trek mid-way. This rare ray of sunshine came out while we were walking back. It is never a good feeling to leave a trek mid way but I have always been pragmatic about it!
Whichever way you look at it, Chandratal (Himachal Pradesh, India) is beautiful. I saw it along with too many clouds! I am pining to go back. Let us see if I can do it this year itself. After all I have time now!
I often think of Everest Base Camp trek in Nepal with a lot of nostalgia. I would always feel unsure about completing it but I did it in the end! And the mountain gods let me do it, after all you need their cooperation in completing any trek!

Bushra, sometimes I can make a little bit of better picture because of taking it in a particular angle. But Himalayas are amazing, I capture less than what I see.

Wow.Amazing shots. Feeling to go and enjoy all these places.
Thank you so much.
Fantastic pictures… Mridula, I think you also have been captured by the beauty of Himalayas like me. I had travelled to the Himalayas for trekking so many times. It’s an astonishing place wrapped up with magnificence. It is also my favorite because it is the best adventure trekking destination in India. As you said in your post that you have also been to Palampur. I don’t know if you have visited these nearby destinations like Dharamshala, Kangra, Kullu, Chintpurni as well during your stay in Palampur. But if you don’t then you must visit these places as you seems like a person who loves trekking and travelling in hilly areas and these areas offers the best picturesque location. Here is an informative link describing six best location of Indian Himalayas(http://goo.gl/DIvuAy) for trekking. I‘ve heard a lot about Bhutan location but never visited the place. I must say that you are a lucky person but soon i will plan for a trip to Bhutan as well. The photographs you have posted has refreshed my memories, and now i think, will again have to plan for a trip to Indian Himalayas.
You will love Bhutan. And thank you so much for your generous comment.
