When I was planning my trip to Manali, I decided to go for trekking and experience something new. It was my first time and so I decided to go to Kheerganga. It was quite challenging for me, first of all a 24 Km trek to and fro and trust me there were few moments where I was soo tired and wanted to quit but the only thing that kept me going was the beauty of Manali.
While trekking, on one side there was a continuous stream of water flowing by, and on the other side, a series of big mountains as far as I can see, with snow at the top which was shining as the sunlight falls on it. The view and the sound of water was very peaceful and relaxing.
We passed through few small villages, where I found people just living their normal life in a very quiet peaceful place surrounded by nature where you can’t even have mobile network. I met this 80 years old man, he was quite cheerful. He asked us to sit for a while so that we can take a little bit rest, he tried to make us laugh with his jokes and also asked us why do you people like to live in a crowded city? Trust me, that question made me think for a little while.
Everytime I travel to a new place make me realize that there is something amazing about this world, there’s so much more than what we see everyday & that there is so much we haven’t seen & may never get to. So much that we can only feel if we take that step to trying something new. ( Which I did when I decided to go for trekking )
There’s a quote which I personally follow and would like to share with you all as well :
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” – P.S. I Love You .
