It was an impulse to jump on feet (similar to we might had done in our childhood) and capture the moment. A green pasture atop a hill with beautiful mountain peaks all around... the view is captured in our eyes and mind more than in the camera. It was of course after a steep trek of around 10 km. On the way every one of us was busy clicking and capturing the nature in our mobiles cameras but the real picture captured in mind for ever is much much beautiful than those captured in mobiles & cameras. While descending, the spring water at Nag temple provided the much-needed hydration and relaxation.

About the trip: We started from Gurgaon and drove to a small, peaceful village Pantwari. Parked our car there, took a bath, had a breakfast (booked this trip through Mr. Gambhir Chauhan and he took care of everything) and started the trek with our guide (Deepak), a very helpful and nice person. On reaching the base camp in the afternoon the lunch was ready. After lunch took rest for some time and then enjoyed tea and pakoras in the evening. Stayed at base camp for the night and started the trek to Nag Tibba next day early in the morning.

We were back at base camp at noon. Had our lunch and started the journey back home. While returning we decided to halt at Kempty falls (Mussoorie) for the night. In the morning we started from Kempty fall took a short break at Bhatta falls, enjoyed the maggi sitting on chairs kept in the stream while the cold water relaxed the feet. Next stop was Robbers Cave in Dehradun. Again, walking in the flowing stream in the cave relieved the tiredness. After getting completely wet from head to toe with water dripping from cloths the tea tasted great. From Robbers cave in the evening we drove back to Gurgaon. While back in the city we missed the absolute silence of the hills, the chirping of birds in the morning, the unadulterated food... so many things to miss but leaving all those beautiful experiences behind it was great to be back home with family and kids running around.
