We flagged off our secret 'Himalaya One' project in the summer of 2013. The first trek started in Naggar (Kullu Valley) and ended in Kafnu (Kinnaur Valley). The walk in between spanned 200 kilometres, 19 days and a little over 100 hours of walking. We have tried to compile the best of the footage captured in 6 minutes.

Shot on GoPro.

High points of the trek:
- The Parvati valley walk (from Kheerganga to the Pin Pass) ranks number one in our list of treks and landscapes we have been walking in. It is long, challenging in parts and takes you through a route the beauty of which changes daily.

- The Mulling campsite, on the Bhaba Pass trek.
This was our last camp and it could NOT have been any better. If we had started our walk in reverse, it would obviously have been the first and we may not have wanted to leave. It is an idyllic camp, monsoon-green meadows with a stream skipping past, pine forests in the distance and craning your neck will get you views of rocky mountain faces and untouched glaciers. It is like the Alps and Kashmir put together.

- Getting lost.
Could have been a low point but whenever we think back, this was the day that added all the adventure and risk into this trek, which we had made into a safe trek by planning and over-planning!

- River crossing
There is a clip of me crossing a small bridge (2:00). It is embarrassing how I take each step. It was scary, at that time. After this we crossed so many rivers -- some even without bridges and some streams that started doubling in front of our eyes -- that if I were to cross this very bridge today I would pretty much run over it. So, the river crossings, gave me a lot of confidence which I would otherwise not have acquired sitting at home. And this I consider a very good life skill :)

Low point of the trek:
- Malana village. No words.

Special thanks:
- Akash Mohimen, our editor friend and fellow Himalaya lover who very patiently edited all the footage into this video we love.

- Ben Cooper, the artist of the song used here who very graciously gave us permission to use it.
