Passing Phase

Great things are done when man and mountain meet. -William Blake The mighty Himalayas are the home to numerous passes and as we travelled across Northern part of India, we came across a few of them. As we travel, we see new places and make memories which are everlasting. Here we present eleven memorable passes we encountered.
