"Ghar se hum chale, bas ek backpack aur ek guitar"
- Are you bored with your monotonous city life?
- Do you feel like taking some time off and just relax, maybe read that book you always wanted to, in peace?
- Do you feel like the mountains are calling you?
If your answer to these questions is a 'HELL YEAH!', then read on, because this blog is just for you.
Work stress, traffic jams, incessant honking from cars and the usual hustle and bustle of city life. Well, welcome to our life. I am sure a lot of you people reading this lead the same kind of life as well.
This lifestyle takes a lot of energy and to refuel ourselves, we decided to spend a weekend away from all this - in the tranquility of the Himalayas. It was a festive time, Christmas was right around the corner, and like every millennial, we had a really tight budget (well, I had. Not sure about my friends). So keeping in mind our budget, our research began, and then we realized we aren't just short of cash, we are short of options as well. But then a brother came to our rescue, suggested a peaceful place and a lovely home-stay for our trip.
And that is how we came to know about Kanatal, which is near the famous tourist destination Mussoorie, but is still a hidden gem.
A small but picturesque village, located around 300 kilometres away from Delhi. It is located above the popular destination Dhanaulti in Uttarakhand. Take the Mussoorie-Chamba road to reach the place.
