It's a wrap! Thank you for sending us the best of your trek photos. A huge round of applause to all the photos that were submitted. We appreciate it.
Now, the results of April 2019 Instagram Trek Photo Contest are out.
Your participation and the stunning photos clicked remind us why we love trekking and exploring the mighty yet beautiful mountains.
The top three winning photos were selected with great attention by our official judge, Ayush Goyal, while the Viewer's Choice Award was chosen by your votes.
As you know, these contests are not easy with only a handful of photos up for consideration for the top three winners by our judge. The competition was tough, but only four can take home these desired awards.
And the winners are...
1st Prize (Bikat Voucher worth INR 10,000): Arun Singh
This picture is as close to perfection as there can be. The stunning perspective of the capture and the photo being clicked at the right time makes it stand out.
2nd Prize (Bikat Voucher worth INR 6,000): Sudip Das
The perfect balance of black and white is eerie yet visually soothing. Truly on top of the world feeling.
3rd Prize (Bikat Voucher worth INR 4,000): Mohana Beeregowda
The crispness of this photo has superbly captured the trekkers enduring a tough walk on a blanket of snow which shows how beautiful a challenging trek like Pin Parvati Pass can be.
