Snow in peak summer!
Posted by @bhitalks on May 30, 2009
Just as we started our final climb up to the Nathu La, it started snowing. At first it was a slight drizzle, then rain and then snow. It made our trip worth it. Who would have expected snow here in the summer of May! However, not all was covered in snow, as most of it had already melted during this summer. There were a few patches of snow here and there which were the last remains of the snow that had covered the entire area last winter.
Jaishree didn’t waste a single moment to find the biggest chunk of snow and dashed for it. This photograph shows her on top of a huge rock of ice at Nathu La.
