Once upon a time there was a little happy place in the mountains that nobody had ever seen or heard about. Then one day, a group of enthusiastic tourists went to explore this place.

This is the story of almost all pristine, unconventional and apparently offbeat places that are discovered by travellers. And with every year that passes by, such places lose their charm to travellers. However, tourists continue to go there and create a ruckus.
