First trip to northern India. Kasol - Chalal - Tosh - Rasol - Malana. With The Land Out There. A wonderful trip with strangers who would soon become wonderful friends and travel buddies. Some fine memories, moments and people, not to forget the beauty of the hills, especially chalal during sunset. You cant help but admire the raw nature and bow down to it.
