    We went through routes and connected places in the late season of October, as diverse as the Chamba and Pangi valley to Warwan and Inshaan to places where we were the first travellers in a decade, to the complete Zanskar to even a trek to the base camp of Kun peak to the border areas of Gurez and Bangus [ a trek here too till the Indo-Pak LOC] to even the less known place of Doodhpathri yet just 50 km from Srinagar and in all these of course through passes who hear less of from Sach pass to Sinthan to Margan pass to even a named as Rajdhani pass, not to speak of the regular ones, Zoji la and Pensi la.

    This drive and expedition of 8000 km was exploratory all through

    Like in all other travel, we met some of the most simplest and open people in distant lands whether be at Paddar valley...

    And here's who made up this travel
    My good friend, Surja seen here with a localite from Padder, Kisthwar, accompanied me till the Zanskar part. An architecture buff he stayed in Srinagar as we headed ourselves to the most interior parts of Kashmir
