With stunning beaches, rich culture, lofty mountains, my country-off course India will always be the world’s enthralling destination.
With every passing day of this global lockdown, I can’t help but think about the future of travel. With no travel, how will the majority of us be able to escape from monotony.
But, on the other hand, I believe that, sometime in the distant future, we will travel again.
So, on this positive note, I want to share my travel moment that I wish to pause, in order to relive it again. It’s not only moving that creates new starting points, sometimes you need to pause it and play it again.
So, here’s my moment that I had paused in my mind amid lockdown.
Everyone goes on vacation in order to relax. Stress should not be a part but it happens much more than what we might expect. How can we reduce it? By properly planning and following really useful tips.
Travelling as a couple is unlike anything else. You are not alone. It’s more than that. You are travelling as a unit, and you get to share all your experiences with the special one.
Being trapped in 9-5 race, planning our vacation was the best thing I could do. There’s nothing I love more than going somewhere or doing something new. A Himalayan trek was something I always had on my to-do list.
I planned a 4 days trek to Chopta Chandrashila around New Year 2020 with my partner. The trek started from a drive through Haridwar and after around 7 hours, we reached the base camp in Sari village. Every turn we took, it was a treat to our eyes. I am not a trained trekker, but was determined to take this challenge and make memories for future. And when you have someone, who always back you up for challenges, it becomes worth it. Also, life begins at the end of your comfort zone.
We did this trek with thrillophilia. For more details about trek, refer this: https://www.thrillophilia.com/tours/chopta-chandrashila-trek-for-3-days
We reached Tungnath after trekking 5 km on the snowy mountains and paid our respect to the highest abode of Lord Shiva. The temple, however, was closed due to snow. It was my first ever experience with the snow. After this, we started the journey to the most astonished Chandrashila peak. It was the hardest climb of my life till date. To describe it in a single word- it was MAGICAL. This peak provides views of many Himalayan ranges. It felt like an angel directly came from heaven and painted everything white, which made the place look so serene.
I still remember those moments, that adrenaline rush, that feeling of accomplishment on reaching the peak that is 4000 ms above sea level. I wish to Pause this Moment forever in my heart and brain.
