Default Some more...

Used NIK filters in photoshop to enhance colors. The weather during the entire trip was overcast and in fact I was standing amidst fog while taking the 3rd pic. The place was the greenest I have ever seen, at 14,000 feet and 3-4 kms wide....it felt like I've walked into heaven. Glad I could take capture some of the memories into these images. They are not the greatest but good enough to remind me a trip of a life time.

Very interesting shots. I assume they are from Pakistan?

Yes they are. Most of these places are only accessible for 4-5 months during the year in summer. The temprature falls to -30 degrees celcius and the roads are blocked due to snow.

That river is really raging, I'm guessing from the snow-melt above. The only place I've seen water running that way was during a trip to Vancouver when we drove up to Whistler a few years ago. Awesome sight, and beautiful terrains you get a chance to walk and shoot.

Yes the river was flowing furiously. Here's another shot of the same river taken almost 80 kms from that place. This one was taken at approx 8 pm in the evening.

Doesn't that just make you want to go get your raft and have a go! Ha! Doing that would be more of a death wish.

lol!! We did have plans to do rafting in that river. There was only one rafting service available and they had one boat. We liked the idea at first but it was terrifying and I wouldnt have been able to take pictures. So we decided to just enjoy the sight of the river :P
