Walking across these icy cold water hurdles barefoot was another experience in itself

The moment of 'मृगतृष्णा'

So, I always planned , planned and only planned to take a trip to these cold dry deserts (a pilgrimage destination for me). And never thought it will happen over a coffee and an hour of discussion. Unprepared for the whether, or rather say for anything and with bare information about the place, we started for this beautiful destination. Nearing to the destination, the monstrous paths and rivers did tried their best to stop us in between, but we did carried on. The feeling of being so small in front of those vast landscapes and mountains, the feeling of self submission to them. When moving out in the chilled night sky to see the starry blanket above seemed to be like a fairy dream.

Day 5

I lived a dream in this short trip. Encountering the fear of an unknown mishap was great in itself. Many might have scaled these mountains and felt victorious , but I felt the roar of them inside and there mightiness.
