The best encounters and experiences happen when you aren’t expecting the best but take on a journey with frivolous thoughts. I was always fascinated towards the sheer spectacle of Himalayan villages, found my wild amidst the Rhododendron tree and for once wanted to get lost in a trail that only welcomed with more green. I got a chance to walk on the road less travelled while hiking the little Buraaskhande hillock in Dhanaulti, Uttarakhand.
It was a beautiful day with sunshine beaming through the towering pine trees and the delight of Himalayan road trips usually takes anyone into euphoric zone. I lost the battle of resisting to fall in love with the picturesque view and with every stretch, the road grew provocatively beautiful. The plan was to visit “Queen of Hills” – Mussoorie but tired of my childhood weekend getaways to the place, I planned to go beyond and take a sneak peak at Dhanaulti.
