Have you ever gone to a place and fallen in love at the first sight?
For me, Tosh was such a village. The evening light had just touched the sky and a light shade of cyan held the village together. I crossed the bridge that led to this picturesque village, and I was undone.
Situated at 2,400 meters (7,900 ft) in elevation, this vibrant village is truly a gem of Himachal Pradesh. My eyes reflected the colorful houses and the smell of freshly steamed momos entered my nostrils as I began to hike up this quaint hamlet.
I took a right turn and let the narrow streets guide me. The villagers were awfully quiet, not sure if that was a regular thing or it was just one of those evenings. I had a particular café in mind that I had to get to, as suggested by the people who had been here before.
Pink Floyd, they said would be a treat to indulge in. So, I just came here, to this village, with no expectations and I guess the most memorable experiences begin with no set plans.
So, yes, Pink Floyd. I began to walk towards it. I used no digital maps, but asked the villagers to guide me. Call it luck or just mere coincidence, a certain café intrigued me on the way.
