In Photos | Kumaon: The Hills Are Alive

A pictorial ode to the mountains, and a love affair that was years in the making.

A love affair with the mountains, which had tepid beginnings with short trips to Corbett from a boarding school in Dehradun, only grew through the years. Soon, the rest of Kumaon—only an incidental stop during those early trips—became the much-loved final destination. With better connections and an unfazed adoration for mountains, this affair with Kumaon came to rival Julie Andrews’ love for the hills in The Sound of Music. She left us with a soundtrack. We leave you with an album.
