It was a very cold day and I was on my way to Bumla pass, the India-China border that can be approached from Arunachal Pradesh in North East India. I had just crossed ‘Y’ junction, an important army post enroute, when I came across these snow covered high altitude winding roads in the Eastern Himalayas.
The roads, though were not in great shape as perceived from the pictures. Instead, it was a bumpy and slippery drive. But, in my mind, having roads in such unforgiving conditions is itself a boon and credit should be given to the Border Roads Organization of the Indian Military for paving the way.
In spite of the foul weather, it was a magical sight as I crossed pristine high altitude lakes one after another. And all across I was skidding on these winding roads. It was a memorable experience indeed!
