Brief Directions

After you reach Kasol, India, you can take a cab that'll drop you at the base. You can either book a guided trek or trek yourself from there. I'd recommend taking a guide as the distance is roughly 14kms to the top and some areas might be very tricky to cross in winters.

Description

Having climbed almost 80% of the sky-kissing mountains of Kheerganga, a group of four childhood friends decided to rest their weary bodies for a while and let the spiritual beauty of nature seep into them further. As we sat on the ice-cold, lava-red colored chairs, waiting for the famous mountain Maggi and bread-omelet being prepared by the locals, I noticed something. There was an archaic tree whose branches were inverted, as if they were growing towards the ground (no, it was not a Banyan tree). When I shifted my focus from the foreground to the background, I saw a mountain, standing tall in its pristine-white majesty. It was really cloudy so the trees that were in the middle (between the foreground and the background) were beautifully silhouetted. This scene looked nothing less than a painting.
