I did my first trek from Pahalgaum to Sonmarg in 1988. You see me at start of trek, a few kms away from Pahalgaum.

You see our porter and a French man. This was half way on day 1 of trek.

We stayed in tents like these. You see me in tent. We spent 2 nights here

On day 2 we went for a one day trek to a close by glacier. You see me with two French girls, four of us did the trek together.

You see the glacier, too long ago for me to remember the name.

Children who stayed in the village close to the glacier.

We spent one night with a family of shepherds whom you see in this picture.

On day five it started raining so we got into a small hut where we were greeted by shephers whom you see in this picture

It was 6 day trek. From Sonmarg I hitched a ride with a truck driver to Leh. You see me at a shop in Leh the next day.
