My work and the routine does not permit me to visit the himalayan mountains as of yet. There are some of the best lakes and the mountain rides to go in these places. Some of the lakes are so old that they seem to have preserved the skeleton of 400 or 800 year old villages who got under snow storm. Few lakes worth visiting are - 1. Suraj Taal Lake 2. Brahma Taal Lake 3. Skeleton Lake I wish to visit them once in my life. I just can't have enough resources to get that big vacation in life so far.

@skysnap OMG! so that means the name 'taal lake' is redundant! literal meaning of it would be 'lake lake'

I do not like to go there. It is so cold and remote, and if the vehicle breaks down, we can end up being part of the skeletons collected there.

No vehicles. Only walking 12 Km distance in between the lakes and hotel.

@skysnap My goodness. No way I will go there. If happen to fall, and injured the leg, I will die there.

@scheng1 there are no big valleys to fall down once you get there. but the temperature, and air pressure and also if you get injured not much of help is there.

how far is the himalayas from you? how do you get there - bus, train, plane? if you finally have the funds, how long do you plan to stay there?

From my home the distance is around 2000 Km to this lake. And i have to switch 2 trains and then bus and finally walking to this point. I'd stay no more 2 days in once place. Himalayas are too vast and too long to cover in entire lifetime. So i plan to cover the popular places in himalayas.
