Lowari Pass

Pakistan, North West Frontier Province – There’s a road that runs between the towns of Peshawar and Chitral, on a good day you can make it in 9 hours, on a bad day it’ll take 14, and on a day like mine, you don’t get to make it at all.

Disappearing Act

Where did the last few weeks go?
Snowed in at a mountain pass, towns with no electricity, towns with no internet, towns with no veggies.

We decided to go to Rishikesh for Diwali and to see the Ganges, except the only problem was we didn’t have enough time. The closest we could get was Haridwar, and upon reading that it was the much more spiritually significant than Rishikesh, and it was the beginning of the Ganges, it sounded a good option.

A 6 hour bus ride from hell, a 32 degree day, and a friend with an upset stomach, was far from desirable.

I rounded up the other two westerners in town and we sussed a private car.
