There is something peculiar yet satisfying about nature. There are so many things to learn from it; most important being humility and harmony.
The towering mountains, humongous seas and oceans leaves you in awe. You are forced to bow in front of them. I feel awkward and dejected when people talk about “conquering” mountains. It’s actually the mountain that let’s you pass through it, with utter patience and humility. Hadn’t it been benevolent enough, people would never have climbed it and instead faced it’s wrath.
People living in the shelter of nature share a mutual understanding with it. They respect nature’s beauty and in return, nature cocoons them with tenderness.
Everything under nature lives in symbiosis. The first drop of rainfall cheers up the parched soil and quenches its thirst. The limpid glory which rests itself upon the soft glossy bed of a leaf, looks like pearls which embellish the surroundings. It seems that nature heals those who wish to live in it’s fold.
So, when you go out for adventurous trip, do remember to pack with you, humility, trust, low demands and empathy along with raincoats and boots.
You will find your path more easier to walk on and journey would be all the more pleasant.
I survived 7 days without wifi and network !! I feel on top of the world !!
Wait, I am ACTUALLY on top of the world, at Khardungla pass – world’s highest motorable road which is approximately 18000 ft, in Leh-Ladakh 😀.
Leh- ladakh has got unrivaled beauty and solitude. You won’t believe that this is the place where there is acuteness of oxygen, sparse vegetation, lack of electricity, weak signals of wifi as well as network…. And this makes the place adventurous and all the more captivating. The place seems to be a great attention seeker!
The locals in Leh-Ladakh live a very simple lifestyle. They are polite, friendly, optimistic and united- all the characteristics which define an ideal human. Talking to them is always very pleasing. A group of lovely ladies greeted me with a wide smile. I felt so nice and comfortable 😊.
People here have a great vision and they can sense things better than us. They are highly experienced people who survive the extreme with a cosy smile every single day. Yes! They are warriors and valient heroes.
The clouds soaring in the divine sky tenderly kiss the mountain peaks to form an eye catching and peaceful scenery.
Wherever you go in leh -ladakh you will always find mountains standing tall and high, looking down upon you with curiosity and eagerness. It seems as if each one of them has a story to tell. A story in which they reveal their glory, experience and wisdom.
It’s the place where you can click hundreds of pictures and still can’t get satisfaction! Every new corner unleashes a mesmerising scene accompanied by goddess of beauty.
We drank apricot walnut saffron tea. Natural sweetness of apricot and occasional crunchiness of walnut makes the drink heavenly.
Ever seen a circle rainbow ? 360 degrees ? Wonderful phenomenon it surely is 🌈!!
The sky obsessed with it’s alluring appearance looks down to see it’s reflection in the crystal clear water of Pangong lake.
And the wind that flows, aesthetically carves the sand dunes in Nubra valley.
Can I forget the deadly experience I had in the snowstorm?! My hair were turning white with snow flakes 😂, toes were numb and I am surprised how I was still alive without my jacket on!
There’s always a fight between sun and wind. So we experienced all kinds of weather at the same place 😂. One moment you are a stuffed teddy bear and next moment, sun suddenly becomes dominant and all you can do is to remove all the warm clothes off!
So… What I learnt from this trip?
Beauty lies in simplicity. Your inner self reflects your outer vision.
And as always, nature did not fail to impress me. It once again struck the chords of my heart 😊.
