Early morning we left for Padri on foot. A bit difficult hike. The trails were very less travelled. And we didn't find even one person the entire day. We reached around 6pm after much effort. But the view was just heavenly. The landscapes just blew our minds away. We lost all fatigue and embraced nature like a child embraces a puppy. It rained and then the sun shined bright, again it rained. The weather was changing the landscapes within minutes and what we witnessed was truly magical. Went in the woods to collect wood that would burn, specially after rains, and made food for ourselves. That meal was the tastiest meal I remember I had. Out in the open just the 7 of us, witnessing the star lit night. I miss that night.
Here, in the absence of homestay, we stayed at tents. Cost per head came to 1200 per person.
