The Mountains are Calling

By Mridula Dwivedi July 11, 2014 42 Comments ,

It is that time of the year when I head out to mountains. Usually I take two weeks off and go trekking. But this year it was not meant to be. I am just taking one week off and I am not trekking. The original plan was to take two weeks off but then I got invited again to one of my favorite destinations so I had to cut short the trekking plan. But then I am heading to the mountains for one whole week and if everything goes according to the plan, I travel again after a few days of coming back. I have actually no reason to crib!

So while Delhi/NCR is once again sweltering at 41 degree Celsius; tomorrow I head out again to the exact same place you see in the picture above. There are plans to go beyond, places that are even more beautiful  but I will take it slowly, one at a time.

I have noticed a new thing about myself. After about 15 days I start getting stark and raving mad at the traffic I commute through. Usually after 15 days I have been off on a trip and I can bear the traffic, for about two days once I come back and then it starts driving me mad again. This time it has been about 15 days in the city. I am happy to leave behind the traffic, the pollution and the chaos. This beastly traffic is one thing that I mind most about my existence. And as I type this, I feel I should be really grateful if the beastly traffic is the number 1 botheration in my life these days!

So then folks, time to head out to cooler climates, this time on a personal vacation. My elder nephew would be joining me a few days after and lucky guy, he will go trekking.

  1. Is there anything prettier than the sight of snow capped mountains reflecting the sun rays ? I think not. Awesome click. I wish to retire near mountains too. Lets see how that works out 😛

  2. Beautiful pic. Enjoy your trip to these amazing mountains.
    Delhi also got a respite just now ! Rain God took pity on us and sent some rain and cool breeze 🙂

  3. Love those mountains.
    Yes the traffic really gets you and I don’t see the reason why each one has to get his/her car out to go to work.
