Our first stop on the trek once we started walking was Juda ka Talab. The legend has it that Lord Shiva opened a little of his hair and water flowed out to form this small pond.
There were many Gujjar horses in the meadow, grazing around. They came running from a distance to what must be their playground. Then on seeing commotion they just stood still for a while. A little later they were grazing around and more at peace. But the horses had a tendency of running near the pitched tents and that would scare me thoroughly if I was inside the tent. Because from inside it felt as if they would run over the tent itself. However, nothing like that happened at this beautiful campsite.
I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
