Jota Wali Mata of Indrahar Pass

Illaqa to Lahesh Cave As we reached the centre of Illaqa we were welcomed by in-bounding thick  fog with visibility of 5 to 10 meters. Now we were dependent on the Cairn. (I recalled the night of Dec 15th-16th 2012 when in snow I’d lost my way here while attempting to reach Lahesh Cave and had to take shelter under a rock  makeshift cave and to save myself from cold…and initiate a night run to SnowLine Cafe. Well that was a lesson and I learned that I’m not experienced in trekking in dark and need to work on that.) I … Continue reading
