Skywatch Friday – Siachen War Memorial

Written by Poorna & Brinda
Siachen Glacier, Karakoram ranges, The Himalayas. India.
The highest battlefield in the world.
The toughest battlefield anywhere in the world.
Minimum temperature in Winter – Minus 70 degree Celsius.
We were there at the base camp during our Ladakh trip in August this year.

PMModi’s visit toSiachen yesterday rekindled memories of our visit to the base camp and the war memorial there.We visited the war memorial in the base camp set against a picturesque backdrop of mountains. It was mid day. The sky was clear. Lovely blue. Click on pictures to see in original size.

It was a poignant moment for us. Looking at the names of martyrs in the roll of honour brought tears in our eyes.
Here is a nice video shot by NDTV on the conditions in Siachen Glacier and Indian Army’s resiliency.
