An Encounter with a Guiding Soul in Kasol - Day 1

23rd Feb 2019

It is never easy to select one place when you are a travel freak and have a hectic job which doesn't allow you to travel that often.

This year 2018, it was that time again.
The year was about to end and we havent even planned where to go.

We are 2 people who travel together.
One, is Me - who loves unplanned adventure and the other is My Bestfriendbwith whom I share this blog - who wants to plan the days especially the stays.

But one thing is, we both love Nature. We both love spending time with each other.
Hence, taking a leap we decided to travel for a week.

This time after so much research and him rejecting all my locations as he wantes to spend more time staying at a place rather than traveling to and from the place we finally decided to go to the Clichéd place - Kasol.

We started our journey from Delhi to Buntar via bus.
Upon reaching Bhuntar, we had a reservation for a night at a Resort in Jari, which is few kms before Kasol.
The place was situated between 2 mountains, by a river side, which requires trekking down 3 kms of narrow jungle Mountain and crossing the river bridge.

This was one of the first best decision we took, by taking a risk of staying there, with a view to die for.

What happened the day we reached is quiet an adventure and story to share.

On the day we reached therez we freshened up and trekked up to go and explore Kasol in whatever time we had left for the day which was roughly 4-5 hours before sun down.

We had decided to go have lunch with drinka and a quick dinner if possible before coming back.

But we were so lost in our trek to Chalal from Kasol, that we couldnt make it back on time. The sun had set and we both had were alone with no other soul in sight to trek down that risky, narrow 3kms trek down.

We started our trek with our phone torches on.

After a while we got confused on the oath as it was so dark and also started getting chills as we were in the middle of nowhere late evening between a mountain jungle.

I am a Buddhist Practioner hence he suggested me to start chanting, I started doing it in my heart and we continued our trek.

After a while, we saw a figure with a light way behind us. We got a little happy seeing a soul, but after a while we figured that soul didnt cross us but has gone was ahead of us.

Through that figure with a light, we figured our path, carefully went down and then lost him.
After a while it was time to decide which way was the bridge as we had to take that path down, and suddenly that figure with a light popped at the start of the bridge and made us believe it as it started walking on it and so we started following him and we lost him again and never saw it again.

We are till now amazed of this experience.

It felt as of that was a 'Guiding Angel'.

We are certainly never going to forget this moment.

Now, I know, no place is Clichéd. Every place no matter how popular will give you your experiences in a unique way.
