The mountains of Uttarakhand are considered to be the newest rock formations, only 6,00,000 years old. Still under formation, the mountains retain the signs of its original existence clearly indicating that the mountains have actually emerged from under the water surface and formed by extreme natural forces in action.


Slim valleys, biting cold and a disturbing air-draft through the funnels!! That describes the treachery of this side of the Himalayan mountains. The valleys are so narrow that the hills on the either side seem to embrace each other. Yet, when the air is still, there is pin drop silence. Only the melting snow making their shrill sound through the passes.
