From polluted, murky Delhi, to clean Shimla, where the air is permeated with the scents of pines and apples, I was extremely excited to spend a weekend in the lap of green forests and under the warm winter sun. I reached Shimla in the wee hours of the morning, when even the sun wasn't awake! But I wasn't actually spending my weekend in Shimla. It is a little too populated with honeymooners and winter weekend getaway seekers. My destination was a little farther ahead, right in the middle of a deodar forest, in a small hilly hamlet called Naldehra.
