Fix your gaze at the awe-inspiring moonrise
The surprise (or the added bonus) of the trip was the awe-inspiring moonrise that I witnessed along with my fellow travellers that evening. I hadn’t seen anything like that ever before! The way the orange ball began to rise from behind the Himalayas was divine. For a while, we couldn’t even understand that it was the moon. But then it rose in its glory and how! I’m glad that I enjoyed it without worrying about taking pictures.
Don’t miss the sunrise
I was looking forward to the next day now. I had decided that I’d get up early to watch the sunrise. Also, I wanted to spend the day lazily, didn’t want to walk because I had hiked quite a lot in the last few days.
So, I got up quite early the following morning and waited for the sun to ascend from behind the mountains, and it did in a little while. It was so mesmeric – the glow of the mellow sunlight, the chirping of birds, the freshness, and the colours.
