MY MOMENT's From Trek:
It's from one such beautiful afternoon, when we started our trek from KC Cafe Barsaini.
In full enthusiasm we walked through forest trail, already anticipating the joyful journey that we are going to experience. Little did I know about landing in place where i had been dreaming to be , since years. Heart racing with high dopamin, eyes wide open and totally glued to the tree bearing ripe apples all over it. Wow ! Appple orchard, I exclaimed. Couldn't hold my excitement plucking fresh juicy Apples from the garden. Yes, I did stole those apples.
Gradually in a midway of our trek it started raining. Thankfully we purchased pocket raincoats, it totally worked as saviour. Meanwhile, along the way those gushing sound of many waterfalls, walking amidst dense forest in monsoon and what a pleasure of ending our trek in night with torch marking the way and guide guiding through the trail. Having warm company of fellow trekkers, stories and splendid sight just made the journey super thrilling and memorable . The food, lady host , bonfire and Dance after dinner in hall tent was so random and exhilarating. Away from the wifi, network and expectations, there in a moment I realized how we bond over simple activities, games and interactions. Yet, why we do less of it? Anyways, cheers to us "Yay! not strangers anymore."
Oh! Did I forget to mention the hot spring bathe that we had the very next morning? Just after entering in pool I was like this is real "Jacuzzi" guys. 😝 We couldn't imagine the joy of having shower in such chiller weather that too in early morning in Himalaya's. Something I avoid in city😝 Soon we all realized that it was so worth doing . Seemed it released us from all the pain from our long trek & we felt super warm and alive in that moment . My heart sank thinking of leaving this place the very same day. Oh! Pretty Parvati Valley, you have got my heart❤. You give me every reason to be grateful for.
Well to your surprise, you might find it unbelievable to have the hot spring pool on one side and chillier cloudy weather on the other side of Himalaya's . Breathe.! B'coz its natural and this place has all holy spiritual vibes. After shower, hit the beautifull temple to thank God Shiv, which is just 50mtrs away from the pool. We forgot to make to temple in excitement of Jacuzzi. Lol. But you should go, highly recommended by localites there.
You can also mark Manikarn in your itinerary for visiting Gurudwara, Shiv temple opposite to it and hot water spring.
I can't tell you how my every hormones of happiness aroused in this trek. I slept in peace and gratitude that night in camp.
Let's travel through some pictures from that day:
