There’s no electricity for quite some time, yet, we have a gala time chatting with the locals, listening to weird stories of leopards fighting and putting on a show. Occasionally, I am also afraid of heading to the washroom as we have to walk a bit through the dark for the same. I create fake scenarios in my mind around encountering the leopard and being their dinner. Anyway… soon, as the night engulfed, I retire to bed. Our room is very basic, one you would expect in these remote mountain forests. It has two beds, a small mirror, and the ceiling is pretty close to the head. More than enough for me to have a good night’s sleep.
The next morning, we head to catch a sunrise. We are so drowsy from incomplete sleep, yet, I did not want to miss the morning hike. Soon, we leave our guest house and start hiking uphill. It’s a little too much of a push for someone who didn’t quite wake up from last night’s sleep, but the beautiful sunrise shining in its best golden hues is something I’ll never forget. It has made all the troubles worth it. WOW, what a trip!
