The best remedy for those who are afraid, lonely or unhappy is to go outside, somewhere where they can be quiet, alone with the heavens, nature and God. Because only then does one feel that all is as it should be and that God wishes to see people happy, amidst the simple beauty of nature. – Anne Frank

Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you…while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.”-John Muir

Have you dreamt of a journey to the top of  the world? In a far..faraway land where time has moved slowly and little has changed since the inception of the world? A place that will give you a chance to experience nature as it was always meant to be. Granite mountains rising to meet the skies, snow covered peaks bearing resemblance to the heavens they represent, creating valleys so deep you almost wish you had wings to fly..to dive into its depth and soar back up to the skies. The vistas.. the breathtaking vistas which will make your head reel. And wherever you look you will only see beauty in its most magnificent form, that brings out deep emotions within you of spirituality of worship.. and as you see, feel and experience a taste of divinity, peace will settle down in your heart like glowing warmth. And you will rejoice in Gods creativity, his brilliance his Majesty.

So if you yearn to attain pureness of the heart & mind, breathe the sweetness in the air, and be lost in eternal beauty..take the road to the mountains. Go to Nepal.

    1. Vanshika, the Annapurna Base Camp Trek is an amazing journey. I am happy to hear that you are planning to do the trek some time soon. Prepare adequately, and don’t forget the camera.

      Good Luck!

    1. That’s a really interesting observation. Although I will call them quasi-permanent. While mountains remain silent as we tread on them, their fury is the most catastrophic. I have seen the mountains suffer: thanks to the overzealous infrastructure development.

      The town I grew up in (Nainital) has gone through interesting changes. A once 14K feet peak was reduced to 7K, after a major landslide 100s of years ago. And during my time there a huge chunk of the hill collapsed into the lake- I was a 9th grader who woke up to tremulous shakes of our 150 year old dormitory. We ran to the playground and the skies rained down in fury. We were terrified as the earthquaked with vibrations of 7.9 magnitude. The epicenter, another Himalayan town close by (Chamoli) was desquamated. 1000s buried in debris while man eating leapords prowled.

      Yes they are silent almost permanent structures. While they inspire us, they also demand our respect. Their vastness reminds us of our insignificance. Ant their backlash is unimaginable and most destructive.

      Thanks for stopping by! Appreciate your time and patience to read my idle ramblings. Please visit again 🙂
