Travel haiku – Karkotak Peak trek

Your warm blushes
Engulf my senses
Transporting me to a wonderland
Where only your violets gloriously shine

And what a trek 🏞️🗻🏔️ will it be if the mighty conifers 🌲 are not there to sooth us in their shade?

Travel musings – Nag Tibba

I can chose either to be a victim of the world or an adventurer in search of treasure. It’s all a question of how I view my life – #paulocoelho

That is our trek leader from @trekthehimalayas
praying to Lord Shiva and the mountain Gods after successfully leading a group of novices to the Nag Tibba top. Praying after reaching the top is his regular ritual.
He advices the travellers to respect the mountains and keep them as clean as possible because then only the mountains will respect you. He also believes that we can only successfully climb the mountain if we revere them from our heart.
