Photography is difficult in the valley because you get high contract of Sun rays & shadow.
Many times photo gets burn & camera shake due to low light. So Exposure, Metering, White balance are most important factors. Prefer RAW format instead of JPEG format, Use tripod.

Nothing to help you, but your hands & your own head
That’s me, big rocks patches crossing were challenging job.

Sandhan Valley Trek

40 ft. rappelling point of Sandhan valley 
       After crossing small & big rock patches we came near big rock patch of 40 ft. Around 2 pm we reach 1st rappelling point. At first Bhagwat get rappelled dawn first, he already done rappelling on Kokan kada of Harishchandragad so he had no fear while rappelling. Mr. Sanjay was a bit afraid because he had no experience in rappelling, so we all gave him courage to go ahead.
