    Lucky you slept in for sure! Did you ever find out what happened to the people on the first bus? Your photos are beautiful. The lake is stunning. Funnily enough, I had an almost death experience in India. But instead of a hostage taking, I bumped into a tiger in front of our tent in Ranthambore National Park. A truly terrifying moment and one that I can’t believe that I survived. Crazy this travel thing!!! Lol

      No, I was browsing the internet but couldn’t find anything. Your story sounds really exciting too!

    Oh it’s really scary to know about the previous bus. Kashmir is so beautiful but so uncertain sometimes. I am glad you slept in and you are safe. Hope you have had better memories of the land too.

    wow – as a big Bollywood fan, the names are all familiar to me – Srinagar, Kargil, Jammu – in some of their war/patriotic films I have seen. However, your personal experience there for me really showed me the reality of what traveling and perhaps living in Kashmir is really like. I have heard it is one of the most beautiful places on earth but I have to admit the instability has prevented me from even thinking about it as a possibility.

      Regardless of what happened, I do believe it was an isolated incident and I would recommend anyone to visit Kashmir. It is indeed, one of the most beautiful destinations I ever visited.

    OMG, what an experience! So lucky you missed getting into that bust that was stoned. It was all over the news in India. I’ve been to Pangong Tso and it was one of the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen.

      Thank you for your comment, Priya. Yes, I know- it was everywhere when I came back to Delhi.

    Wow that sounds like a crazy experience! Glad you slept in and missed that first bus. You just never know what could happen while you travel so good lesson to everyone to get travel insurance and travel as safely as possible.

      Definitely, but dangerous experiences also can potentially turn into great stories, I’ll be telling for the rest of my life:D

    Ok that’s some really scary experience you luckily avoided by sleeping in. Travelling as much as it sounds fun, it still has its crazy and scary times too. Loved the Pangong Tso lake picture, hope to visit this place someday.
