Day 2

Next Day, we hire scooty from the same guy who lent us his cottage & went to 'Neelkanth Mahadev Mandir'. Route for the temple ia to die for nature lover. I was just sitting on back & my friend was riding the scooty and I was just wandering the nature. Just want to capture those all beautiful things in my vision for forever. We Delhihites don't get that much chance to see nature, instead we get to see garbage on road, stalling cows eating plastics etc.

So, we paid our thanks to Lord Mahadev for giving us chance to be in that moment. I wasn't even sure for word right now how to describe my trip as it was full of mysteries & I guess spirituality.
After that we came back to Rishikesh, and went to Goa beach where we bath again in chill spine water of river Ganges, made some friends : after spending 3-4 hours their we went back to cottage owner, handover scooty to him & greeted him for their hospitality. We decided to go Haridwar back & to visit Mansa Devi Temple, & I was excited for that as it was like a short trek for me.

Day 1

Well, I hope you all are enjoying your each & every breath coz this is the only gift that we are gifted by our god's.
So, as per my last trip I told you guys that I'm an HR by profession but from last few times I'm out of my mind ( seriously).  My mind isn't at peace from last year I guess & it only get some relief when I was in nature or you can say with nature in mountains.
This time me & my 1 close friend planned to visit Haridwar & Rishikesh. As I was looking for some peace so I said why not???
We leave from Delhi ISBT & board Haridwar bus which took approx 6-7 hours and drop us at Haridwar Bus stand. From their we went directly to Har ki Paudi (stairs of Lord Shiva) at the bank of riven Ganges. In my opinion, no river can compete with the monstrous sound of river Ganges water flows & taking dip in the cold water of river sent chill to your spine internally.
After spending some time at Har ki Paudi, & having some chillam with evergreen babas, we decided to move to Rishikesh on the same day as we are planning for adventure activities. So we hire an auto from Haridwar which took us to Rishikesh in an hour or so. We booked a cottage but misfortunate to know that all adventure activities are available till  30 June as per UK Govt rule.
So, we just went to our cottage have some liquor their & went to sleep for the night.

Day 3

So, we reached Haridwar..again took dip in river Ganges & went to Mansa Devi Temple. Weather was nice : route for temple is like a maze, I'll surely lost their if peoples didn't help me guiding right route. So, we prayed at temple & came back. Spend remaining day in Haridwar. Decided to come Delhi via train for a change, reached train station booked our tickets & at 11pm board our train. Which took more than 8 hours & finally came back to Delhi.

From all these trips, one thing what I've realised is that we all are blessed to get chance to see this beautiful mother earth & we must visit at least 3-4 times a year, just to remind us that we are nothing without this nature. We all are in this maze so just try to explore, expand your wings. Let our future generations travel so they can know about our vivid cultures, about our history & about our gods/goddess.

May you all be blessed by Lord Shiva..!!
