“Traveling alone will be the scariest, most liberating, life-changing experience of your life. Try it at least once!”

Day 1

National Highway - 534

I took NH- 534 to go from Kotdwar to Pauri. From here the mountain road begins. I reduced the speed of my car so my journey be safe and I can enjoy beauty of mountains too.

Day 3

Today was my third day in Pauri and I had nothing to do Or you can say that because of the tiredness of yesterday, I had no desire to go anywhere outside the resort.

Day 2

Whenever I am traveling, I always get up early in the morning because I don't want to miss the beauty of that place. Same happened in Pauri. I came out of the room and thought what to do. The manager told me that there is a village nearby and the way to get there is through the forest behind the resort.

Taking my camera, I set out towards the villages.

I had already done the planning of Pauri about a month ago. Now I just had to leave home. Around 6:30 I left the home to go to Pauri via Kotdwar. I had to drive carefully because I was going alone on this trip.

This is a very beautiful resort in the midst of nature away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Isn't Beautiful

The weather is unpredictable in the mountains. In the evening, the weather here changed completely. I thought let's go to the places around Pauri.

The view of sunset from the other end of Pauri was amazing.

Fire in Forest

Coming back towards the resort at night, saw the forest fire. Saw it many times in news channels but this time facing reality.

The forest was getting denser with each step. Simultaneously the beauty of the forest was also increasing.

At night the sky of Pauri lit up with stars.

The resort had a small library and had some books related to the mountains. After having breakfast, I sat down with books. After lunch the weather suddenly changed again.

As soon as the weather opened in the evening, the manager of the resort came and asked me to walk on the mountain behind the resort. How could I even miss such a chance. There are three more boys were staying in the restaurant. Now five of us went through the middle of the forest towards the top the hill.

Today was my last day in Pauri. Nothing could have been better than seeing Pauri from the highest point on the last day.

Pauri is more beautiful than expected. And maybe my heart is not full yet.

It's a painting by nature.
