The trek was decided to a place called Bhalugarh, the place was a small trek but it had the most beautiful waterfalls around. It was a mixture of hilly routes and three brooks. when the trek started I could see the guide that we were provided with was as much of a travel enthusiast as I am, we had a good conversation and unlike the most treks this one did not just give me the thrills and adventure vibes but also helped me make some great memories. We met some localities on our way, they joined us for a while and told us their stories of the place and it history and why it is called what it is called, they were the best story tellers I ever met, as they swallowed me totally into their stories as we walked though the ‘pagdandi’ which is a word that describes a non cemented route in the hills.
They were some great people to have acquaintance with. As the others from our group were not much of a trekking physic, we had to stop by at some places. The localities we met told us that there was a tea stall nearby and we made our way there. I wouldn’t be liar if I say there was some magic in that very tea we drank, and to my experience I would say, the closer you get to the natural stuff the different and deep the flavors get. When we crossed the first brook I could see how my natural travel instincts had come to play and I will all my energy started exploring the place. I clicked some really beautiful pictures. As the trek followed the route got tougher, the guide and I had to help everyone cross through the brooks which were tough and sometimes through the places where they needed a hand.
And finally we reached the waterfall. It was a beautiful waterfall, I clicked some sensational pictures and in the end sat there slowly and silently to let the place dwell deep into me and so I could feel its beauty deep in my soul. That was my one best trip, not because of how beautiful the place was but because how good they made it. With all the good memories I finished my trek and told everyone how good it was.”
