"Beauty" That's the word that comes to my mind when I visit this place. Built as a hotel, this place was a palace of Maharaja Hari Singh, who ruled over Kashmir, a former princely state.
You get to see the magnificent Dal Lake surrounded by the beautiful hills of Srinagar. Certainly, an ideal place to sit and have a cup of tea/coffee while enjoying the view you'll never get bored of.
Want more? Visit in the winters, when everything would be covered in snow, looking white and bright as ever.
We arrived at #Khowarib#Community Campsite in #Namibia to find the most spectacular scenery surrounded us. Our campsite was basically on the edge of a cliff above a small winding river lined by lush greenery, all nestled in a dry and barren valley surrounded by mountains.
The closest of these mountains was directly opposite us on the other side of the river. So... I decided to climb it and decided to do this barefoot. It wasn't the wisest decision of my life because the rock was sharp and when rocks came loose and clanged against others they sounded like tinkling glass. Because of this I named it "glass mountain" and this is what we've referred to it as since (we have no idea what it's actual name is). It was painful but the view at the top was spectacular.
So the next morning (when this photo was taken) I again ventured up glass mountain, that time to watch sunrise and wearing shoes.
As I was alone I had to take this photo using a 10 second self timer. It was quite difficult to set up the camera and then (safely) scramble into position within the 10 seconds and it took many attempts to get a decent photo. I was relieved when one turned out because some of the big handholds had become loose.
