Shungatser – The landslide lake

Shungatser – The landslide lake



Sculpts daily.



Shungatser lake is situated at 14,500 feet, about 42 Km from Tawang, in the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh. It was originally a grazing ground but the massive landslide of 1950 transformed it into a large lake, submerging the entire forest.


This lake is a testimony that nature never tires from sculpting. Daily it makes an effort to transform itself for the future.


We being a part of nature, need to learn that anything we undertake in our life, requires years of effort to make it presentable.

    Nature has a treasure box with unending treasure. It also teaches us the virtue of life if we want to listen . It teaches us to try to be in harmony with rhythm of the universe. Our senses , our vision get soiled from the touch of our daily life. Being confined in our gross necessities we often remain unaware that we are also part of the beauty and rhythm of the universe.
    Artist like Amardeep through their aesthetic creation bring back our lost sense and make us aware of the eternal truth that we are the part of the universe . Then our broken tune of life get back it’s melody to be a part of natural symphony.
    We are grateful to Amardeep that his creative work helps us to find our lost ” self “.

    your writing a forward for your photographs is akin to giving a soul to a body. Amateurs and novices like me find a way to connect. Thanx….but why is there a kind of speckled look to the photographs….we notice it on the twigs jutting out of the water, on the mountains and the terrain….though no doubt it adds to the beauty of the photographs… this is beyond the vision of our eyes

  14. NICE write up and photos
