  • Beauty of the Great National Himalayan Park with its set of vibrant life put out in these pictures gets me nostalgic about a small trip that I undertook way back in 2003.

    And I remain ever grateful for Sanjeeva Pandey for having organised that memorable tour.

    Also do recollect the services of Balak Ram, the tour guide, who would not let a bit of plastic sweet rapper fall on the floor of the forest lest it damage the environment in anyway.

    Having had a glimpse of the Western Tragopan in its natural environs, it remains on very memorable moment till date.

    The Park is an awesome place and one comes back chastened to respect and revere nature.
