We had a another guest there, with us that night ... a Bengali from Kolkata - Sandip Chakraborty. This is the first time, I have seen a Bengali doing a "solo" with only a backpack! ... Bengalis are a gregarious lot and usually travel in groups and talk a lot on any subject! I know that very well, from my 24years stay in Kolkata and at IIT-Kharagpur! So was a bit surprised to see a rather quiet Bengali now.
20th May 2007. Visited Milam Glacier. We left Milam Village early at 6:00AM and reached the Glacier Moraine at around 8:00am. Got various partial views of the Glacier and Hardeol peak .... but the clouds never allowed a full unhindered view of the entire glacier! So now did'nt feel too bad about having to surrender the camera to the ITBP guys!
At 6:00 PM the ITBP guy agreed to return my camera, as I was to start my trek back very early next day. The ITBP Commandant, whom I met near the Volleyball court, said I could take pictures at the Milam Village or Southwards but not north towards Glacier.
