I had to wake up early because I was scheduled to catch the only bus that goes from malana in the entire day. I was actually short of money and taxi would have costed me around 800rs. I reached bhuntar from the bus in about 65rs. I was in bhuntar at about 11am. My return bus was scheduled for 7pm. With nothing to do, I decided to trek in the valleys of bhuntar. And damn, bhuntar is such a beautiful place too. Well there were 2-3 odd things about this trip too. One was that I hadn't told my parents about it (don't even plan to). Another one was that there were a few eyebrows raised at me as I am just 18 and I was traveling all alone in places such as kasol or malana. But nothing worried me. I was there for a reason. I got the chance to meet myself and even completed one of the numerous plans I've written down in my travel book.
I have actually just passed my class 12th and I had came to Delhi for further coaching and stuff. To say, I've always been one of those kinds who just want to go around, travel, explore new places, meet people and learn their stories. So, one fine day a thought suddenly struck my mind that life has become too non-happening for me, here in Delhi..2-3 hours after this thought, I was sitting in a bus that took me to bhuntar, himachal pradesh in about 12 hrs. I planned a solo trip to kasol/malana.
