The Trail to Heaven, by Dipanjan Mitra

One of the most fascinating treks I have ever done was in the Garhwal Himalayas, India. It was the one to Tapovan, the basecamp of Mount Shivling. I was right behind the porter who carried all the amenities for camping while crossing the deadly Gangotri glacier, the source of the river Ganges.

Photographer: Dipanjan Mitra (Calcutta, India) Registered
Being a software professional since 1999, Dipanjan Mitra always had an intense desire to travel across the Indian terrains. It was long inhibited till 2006 when his journey began with a small digital camera in the state of Karnataka. The world of photography really got him going when he moved on to a relatively higher end digital camera in the form of Canon S5 IS which he had used for around 2 years, trying to learn the magic of shutter and aperture until the real journey began with a Rebel T1i in May 2010. Fascinated by the magic of being behind the lens keeps amazing him every day. He wishes this journey never ends.
