Day 1

So on the first day we boarded a bus from Haridwar to Dharamshala which took us 14 hours and we reached dharamshala at 5 A. M NEXT MORNING.

The weather was freakingly cold, we really needed some heat so we searched around for some fire and then we found some locals setting fire to woods so we went there and sat on the ground, feeling the heat warming the skin.. It felt really good.

Then we boarded a bus for Mcleodganj. The view from the bus was great.. We saw the whole city in lights.

We arrived at Mcleodganj, then we have to find our freinds home, which we got to know was 30 minutes away from the place where we were standing so we have to walk to his house..
It was around 6 in the morning and no sunlight was there but we kept on walking.. The road was getting darker and darker and the dogs were howling.. It was bit of a spooky road and we only had our phones flashlight, and to keep our phone steady we have to remove the gloves from our hand, after a while the hands were totally frozen and we couldn't feel them.

After walking for around 39 minute we finally reached our destination and found the house.

The house was great.. A dog was barking at someone there so I just Whistled to the dog and then at first she looked at me then she waited.. Then I Whistled again and she wiggled her tail and then kept on wiggling.. ( I don't know if wiggling is a word or not..)

Then I went to the bathroom to wash my hand.. I thought the water will be cold so I put my hand slowly in the water but I did not know that they had a solar heater.. So when I touched the water it was hot as hell.. I burnt my fingers(nothing serious).

Then we went to watch bhugsufall there. It was magical

Day 2

We went to the starting point of the trek given by our guide, we met our guide there which told us about the rules that we have to follow in the mountains. Then we started the trek with a bag full of clothes and some energy drinks. They told us not to take any Bluetooth speakers, but i can't live without great music...

So I hid the Bluetooth speaker in the packet of peanuts that we have so that the authorities can't find it if they check our bags and yes.. The plan worked.

I was feeling really great and I just kept on running on the trek.. Way ahead from my group, I was wearing 2 jackets but then I removed both of them and played my favoruite KSHMR track and then i ran.. Dancing on the beat feeling energetic and watching the great view at every point.. The clouds were below us and it was like i was walking above the clouds.

We reached the half point of the trek called magic View and it was really a magical view from there.. We ate maggi there.

then we went on to find our camp and unpacked there, and then for some time I took my boat speakers and sat at the very end of the mountain listening to a song which was really soothing and best fit for that beautiful place..

I sat there till the sunset and then watched the sunset from there and clicked some picture with the sun.
