How often we trek and come across some very beautiful natural scenes as we have never seen before. But then there are few scenes which will freeze in your memories for ever. What, if such a view comes in front of your eyes all of a sudden, in a very unlikely manner.

A view to- if not to die than- certainly vie for! #Gangabal and #Nandkhol lakes at the base of #Harmukh peak (5142 metres or 16,870 ft) in Ganderbal district of #Kashmir as seen from the Gangabal pass. This certainly is a view available only to those courageous ones who choose to go for the #GreatLakesTrek – which is without any doubt one of the most beautiful treks in #Himalayas – #travel #adventure #trekking #treks #lakes #peaks #photofotheday #picoftheday #Instapics #photography #Srinagar #Sonamarg

A perfect vista to fill ones eyes… so close, yet a bit far. What a fitting climax to a unbelievably beautiful trek!
