this is a view of pappersali - the other side of almora. the main town is on the other side of the rig#dge. u don't have to enter the main town, but take a bypass to barechinna.

it was a pleasure, getting away from the heat n dust of chennai town and enjoying the cool mountain breeze on these roads.

as u turn left, u will notice the panchchuli raNGE. we were to head in this direction. our ultimate destination, munsyari, lies on the base of these panchchuli mountains (well, near the base). darma valley is behind these peaks.

another pic of panch chuli

trivia: panch chuli means five pots.
panch = five
chuli = earthen pots (in which u can cook food).

the pandava had cooked their last emals overhear. then they had gone to heaven from swararohini peak, which is nearby in garhwal. that is why the 5 panchchuli peaks are named after the pandavas, with the one of the left representing yudhishtir and the one on the right representing sahdev.

next, we passed through some of the lush green fields and forests of kumaon. this area is in between bade-chinna and dhaul-chinna.
