Yamunotri Visit (source of the Yamuna river) (13 Jun to 18 Jun 2010)

With my poet-philosopher friend Virendra Kumar, I made a trip to Yamunotri from 13th June to 18th June 2010. Some of the photographs. Got three lifers White-bellied Yuhuna, Speckled Wood Pigeon and Pied Thrush. Plenty of other birds. Went via Shamli-Saharanpur-Vikas Nagar-Kalsi Gate-Barhkot-Syanachatti-Janakchatti and returned via the same route except from Vikas Nagar from where we took a detour via Paonta Sahib, Kalesar National Park, Hathini Kund, Yamunangar, Karnal, Murthal and Sonepat.
