Drive from Lachen to Gurudongmar Lake

We managed to get some sleep in the very cold night at Lachen. We were up very early in the morning by 4 a.m for a drive of 67 kms to Gurudongmar Lake.



We passed through a beautiful valley Chopta Valley. It is located in-between Lachen and Gurudongmar which gets covered with flowers in spring and with snow during winter. 



As we go up the high altitude one can distinctly see the change in foliage. From green forests or large trees, the foliage changes to mostly smaller bushes. On either side of the road on come across beautiful snow covered peaks.



Beautiful Gurudongmar Lake which is located further up at an altitude of 17800 ft near Indo-Tibet border.

What beautiful scenery! I love the snow-covered mountains.

Absolutely stunning - this is an area I'd so love to visit. Although I think it would spoil me for our mountains, my house is only at 7,100 feet elevation and I can only see a 14,115 foot peak from it. Yours are much more impressive.
