Off to Moila Top- Budher Caves
It's a beautiful bugyal with the caves to explore...
We left from Hotel at around 8 after having Breakfast. On the way was Chakrata market, so we thought of taking a walk. It resulted into making my friends shop for pahadi stuff- Garhwal's famous Naurangi dal (mix of 9 types or Rajma), organic Turmeric, Buraansh juice & Pudina Squash, dried apricots, walnuts... There was so much more but had to control, because it was a month end trip with salary yet to come.. LOL
Than we headed towards Moila Top, one needs to take the road to Tyuni which goes straight to Himachal.
You could only take vehicle to half way, where the only thing you will find is a forest rest house and a small shop, it's a Deodar jungle all around. From there it's a 3 KM trek, with a proper trail going through the Deodar jungle. It's a clean bugyal with Pari Temple at the top.
We did not go inside the cave because it was too dark and we did not have a local guide with us.
The best part of being at the top is one can easily see Garhwal Himalayan range from Moila Top.
After spending good two hours, clicking photographs and feeling the beauty of this serene place, we came back.
Had Maggie for lunch at shop near FRH and than came back to Chakrata market to have delicious Momos.
After that, took my friends to Chilmiri Neck to witness the sunset, one of my fav things to do in hills.
Post witnessing sunset, we left for Doon and than to Delhi.
There is so much to see in Chakrata that two days passed by in a blink of an eye.
That's why I captioned this trip- Deja Vu...
