There is something in these mountains which can’t be expressed, but can be sensed, i find solace here, there is a quiet comfort and inspiration present in the views, and I always relax knowing these mountains will always guide me home.
As we climbed the final few meters that day after climbing for 8 hours, this view appeared.
Something that's straight out of a dream and something that made me forget my hurt knees.
As the sun was preparing to settle down, the clouds were gathering in the sky.
The big day was reckoning. The moment of summit was upon us.
We hoped the rain and sunshine would call a truce and allow us to safely trek to the summit.
All this was happening while the wind had started to go from insane to berzerk!! 🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼🔼 🔼
What a night that was. We could actually feel our tents trying to get blown away by the chilly winds. And as we had our tents on a surface which was a bit of a slope, it was even more thrilling. No wonder the campsite is called 'Tila Lotni' meaning 'insane cold'. Nobody at all dared to come out of their tents after 7pm, so much that we actually gave up on a hot cup of Bournvita than actually going out to grab it because we knew no amount of hot drink would make us feel any more warm👻
