Day 1

Hey guys, hope you all are doing well. I planned a 2 days trip in March to Kasol. I had also planned to go to Kheerganga and tosh trek from there. It was raining during that time, so couldn't go to those places, however, I did a trek from Kasol to Manikaran Sahib. It was quite a journey.

TRAVEL GUIDE :

I took a bus from Delhi, it was suppose to reach in 8 hours, it took 13 hours to reach kasol. It wasn't part of the plan, but things were already not going as per the plan...lol... Everything else was counted as a blessing in this trip. It was just random and on a weekend I decided to travel to Kasol. Once I reached, I couldn't get the time to book hotel prior so it took time for me to find it. Pointer 1, if travelling solo, get your hotel booked prior (quite cheaper in Kasol for solo travellers) Pointer 2 check the weather, before planning a trip to Kasol. Pointer 3 Stay positive, if things are not going as per "THE PLAN"..hahaha...and be-live in the NOW..!

It was already 4 PM, I was a bit tired after the long bus journey. I had noodles and a cup of hot coffee, at the hotel. Took my camera and went out in the woods.

Kasol have a lot of small valleys. It was cloudy at that time. I was able to capture some amazing serene, calm and still shots!

Then I trek back from Manikaran to kasol and reached by evening. It was an enriching day. Best thing about solo travelling is you follow your intuition and you are on your own. You are then free to explore. Though I couldn't go to much places but I was able to explore different dimensions within.

I am really grateful for this trip. It helped me understand life is a series of good trips based on our experiences, learnings and perception. It was just like an observing mode had started within me....
