The run till the temple
It gets even more interesting from here. We were supposed to take the jeep to the temple while Harmit wanted to complete his last stretch of workout. But, we instead tagged along with him to do a run as well. I tried to catch up with the guys but realized the need to work more on my fitness levels. Nevertheless, I managed reaching the meeting point near the temple while enjoying the views and savoring the pure sweet water of the stream on the way.
The jeep took us through a dark tunnel whose other side opened into a hidden world of tranquility with deep blue sky and refreshing cool air. The overlooking Himalayas appeared like a crown’s jewel shining in between the sparkling flora and fauna around.
Further ahead, there were cute adorable sheeps waiting to welcome us (though they were mostly shying away from us).
The temples in the hills always feel more authentic than the one’s in cities. Here, I could experience the divine feeling of peace within myself. Hardly any visitors here again made this place one of a kind.
The usual scenic trees and the mountains looked absolutely breathtaking. It is a bit strange but as soon as I saw the tree with beautiful red flowers and the green hills behind the temple, I had drawn some kind of a heavenly image in my mind with the reflection of a huge water body casting its shadow over the hills.
After looking at the view again, I realized that they were the just the hills and the trees but with some mystic appearance. We went down to dip our feet in the cold stream of water flowing from a waterfall.
The water looked crystal clear and was so fresh and cold that it felt like a beautiful spark awakening our minds and body. Also, I made a lovely friend here who had joined us. We were excited to discover that we almost share the same birthdate and became friends in no matter of time.
We had a delicious lunch at Cliffy’s cafe. The cafe looked really cute in between the green surroundings. We relished the keema dosa here before bidding goodbye to our friends and returning back to our homestay.
