GETTING HIGH ON MOUNTAIN PEAKS: Kuari Pass Trek
Trek : Winter Kuari Pass (Lord Curzon Trail)
Date: 28/12/16 to 2/1/17
MIND OF MINE
They weren’t kidding when they said “Trekking is an addiction”. This was my second Himalayan trek this year, the first being Roopkund, I summited Roopkund in June. 6 months and I was craving to re-live the experience. So I decided to summit Kuari pass in December after my engineering exams. Trekking and the little escape to nature at its most magical, purest self has been the best teacher I’ve ever had. The peace, beauty of nature, the pleasant sound of the streams and the water gently hitting the rocks around, add up to the beauty of the place, where you can listen to your own heart and explore new things about yourselves. Shady and dense parts of forest gives thrills whereas the ice-caped peaks give you adrenaline rush. Meeting new people, sharing experiences, the feeling of being on top of the world when you reach the higher parts of the mountain, the unexplainable joy and excitement, it’s all surreal.
