Yessss... At last saw and shot what we came for to the Trans Himalaya.
5 Tibetan wolf, 3 sand fox, Tibetan Gazelle, Kiang ( Tibetan Wild Ass), Argali and many amazingly wonderful birds as well.
Survival in the Trans Himalaya at more than 18,000 feet is not at all easy. And specially carrying the heavy 500mm lens and the d4s and walking up the hill and shooting hand held was the scariest. Temperature was below -14*c and the main problem is the continues fast wind which adds to the cold. Can't afford to keep a single body part exposed for more than a minute. Oxygen level is very less, people can't survive here for more than 60 mins and we spent 3 1/2 to 4 hours daily for a few days up there. Yes even we had some health issues but carried sufficient medicinal back up.
All the efforts and the fitness came to help great help.
From a typical city boys life style to doing this is an achievement in itself for us.
A few more days to go here.... Will upload many behind d scene pictures in the story.
All thanx to Aditya Chavan and his team for the great help everywhere.
Yes I lived above the clouds...

Back to India after spending an amazing time at Habres nest Nepal.
Had a wonderful sighting of 4 different red Pandas. It's an animal to fall in love with. All thanx to the team of Habres Nest.
Saw the beautiful sunrise...The first rays of light touching the peak of the great Mt Everest and Mt Kanchanjunga.... Words will fall short to write the amazing experience.
I feel honored to be felicitated on world photography day 19th August, with my guru and a very good friend....an amazing wildlife photographer Baiju Patil.
