The irony and beauty of walking is that when you are on your feet, you are all of a sudden connected, to places, corners, views and the people you would otherwise look past. You become a part of the space your feet cover, one step at a time.
If you’re bored of the city, I recommend a trek up to Kheerganga, a meadow where Shiva is said to have meditated for 3000 years.
How To Reach Kheerganga
Kheerganga is a spiritual spot located at a height of 2960m in the Parvati Valley, Himachal Pradesh.
