I am back from a very COOL trip…and now trying to adjust in this hot weather of Chattisgarh…it’s very very very HOT….no thnx to Global Warming but thnx to the beautiful places in the world...who help us in enjoying the wonderful nature.
I Love the Sun beam
Every day I sat with my Laptop to write and share my wonderful trip with you all ..but couldn’t write….You can call me lazy in that…but today I have decided I will share it…So the trip goes like this…..
We started our journey from Delhi and headed towards Manali by Volvo….I was little hesitant about Neil’s health that whether he would feel comfortable during the whole journey of 18 hrs? But he is my baby…he was so sweet all through our trip…..thank you kid…umhaa…
31st May: We stayed in Sterling Hotel…as we are its members……the room was great…could see nice hilltop from the window.
View from Our hotel room's window
That day we decided to stay in the hotel and relax…one thing which was nice in Sterling, that every night there were some games held in the garden area, which was a nice entertainment for the guests. That night there was a Magic show along with the games.
1st June – Woke up late at 9 am. Enjoyed the hot Aloo Parathas in the small eating joint. The first day tour included Naggar Castle, Castle of the King, now turned into hotel; Roerich Art Gallery and Museum(Roerich was the artist of Russia married to Devika Rani; our old bollywood actress).
Below the mountain being covered by heave dense cloud. It was such a amazing view.
Shadow of Cloud over Mountain, Beautiful, Isnt it?
2nd June – Ah!!! This was the crucial day..why? As it was coz of this day, we all three were out on holidays…It was our Marriage Aniversary…. Yes….:-)
This day we had to climb Rohtang Pass…by taxi Ofcourse…..!! we woke up at 4 am in the morning and left the hotel by 5 am. The road was not that good. It can be scary too for few…but definitely not for me….(atleast this time, as I had seen much scary roads and climate in Sikkim…driving on the hills is exciting but one has to be very careful)
Reaching at the top was too awesome….all the tiredness of sitting inactive in the car paid off when stepped out of the car….Snow everywhere…………..WOW!!!!
The weather was great….helped us to explore more there…..Neil got excited after seeing the white colour of snow….I saw heaps of people playing in it…..enjoying themselves totally, unreservedly. We too threw balls of snow at each other….saw it in films….and did it in real…:-)….
I had visited RP when I was in 5th std in 1992…..and I remember visiting this palace, wearing a knee length frock and bare chappals. I saw a wide change in every aspect. The road became less dangerous….there were numerous shops in the way, of the coats, wollens, small eating joints……At the peak point too I could see lots of things to munch, like hot bhutta (corn which we enjoyed immensely in that freezing weather), Tea, Maggie, aloo paratha, sandwiches …..and so on….. Enjoying CornCrowded
On the way
Hadimba temple was beautiful….lots of school children had come on the tour…The temple with lots of sky touching trees….reminded me of Saudagar movie
Next was a Club House but seeing the traffic we dint wish to enter inside its campus…rather we spent time sitting on the rocks beside the river Vyaas…I was very much eager to do river crossing but there was a time limit…we had very less time in our hands …so skipped the idea of seeing hot springs….koi nahi….next time sahi….
Hey forgot to tell you all, I also did Paragliding, while returning from RP…..it was crazy, thrilling, wonderful experience…I always wished to do it…..and this time I did it ….intially I was very afraid but at the same time confident too…but thankfully the take off and landing both were done nicely…..the wind pressure was awesome…..too chilly up in the sky… …I was having an eye of eagle…everything was seeming so small…. WOW I still feel it…….
Kullu Manali was an astounding place to spend one’s vacation…..Running from the Hot climate visit beautiful Himachal Pradesh….
