Sunset at Humayan’s Tomb

I’ve passed through Delhi countless times during my past few years on the Indian subcontinent.  Most of the time I use my stopovers as opportunities to fill up on nihari, kebabs, and Biryani in the maze of streets that surrounds the Jama Masjid in old Delhi.  It’s kind of a rarity when I actually do any sightseeing.  My friend Sarah’s arrival to India gave me an excuse to get out and about in Delhi, as I took the role of tour guide for the next few weeks that would take us from India to Nepal.   Though significantly jet-lagged I managed to drag her around to some of the sights of Delhi, likely doing a bit more walking than she might have liked.  My favorite place to end a tour of Delhi is sunset at Humayan’s tomb.  This occasion didn’t disappoint, as we watched the red sandstone glow in the late afternoon light and sun dip below the horizon through the intricately carved stone screens of the mausoleum.

    Hi Micah:
    I plan to do the Tso Moriri to Pin valley trek – I am thinking late May- Early June. Do you know of any guides from that area that can set up the trip? I enjoyed looking at your site. The photos are excellent. Look foward to hearing from you. How long did the bus ride take from Leh to Tso Moriri?
