Hi Ganesh

Well, for some coincidence, I got to process your report and publish it. It in a way proves how connected my soul with "Lakegala".

She simply wouldn't stay away from me and vice versa. A great journey indeed and speechless...

Good to see Kalu Malli carrying on and Nava mama told me that the time he went with me would probably be his last attempt and his wife was adamant he doesn't do it again  Smiley

Thanks for the share and keep going and as always safety first.

Cheers
Sri

Hi Sri,

As you said, Lakegala is very special for me too. I felt more happier then I went to Adams Peak. Something special in that.... I want to go again.....next year.

Hi Sheham, Ranshan & Ramzy,

Don't say "Will Try", say I "Will next year".

All the best..
