Mussorie

A Weekend in the Hills

By

There were plenty of photographers around; displaying their albums full of pictures of people posing dressed in traditional garb. The poses by some of the people, especially honeymoon couples, were absolutely hilarious! We then took the ropeway down to Kempty Lake, which was small and man made, but much cleaner than Mussoorie Lake. We went boating on it.

Road Trip to Rishikesh, Mussoorie and Dehradun

By

We travelled 18km on the road upstream to reach the starting point.Then the guide gave us instructions regarding safety measures and the commands to be followed.

But rafting was nothing like I had imagined it to be. It was even more adventurous, awesome and very very tiring. Up close, the rapids are violent and the possibilities of mishap happening seem endless. The initial rapids were scary but we grew bolder with every passing one.

मोटरसाइकिल से दिल्ली – मंसूरी /धनोल्टी यात्रा

By

सहस्त्रधारा में अंदर घुसते ही 10 रूपये/बाइक एंट्री फीस लगती है जो हमने दिया और अंदर चले गए. वहाँ जाकर हमने बाइक को एक दुकान के आगे खड़ा किया और दुकान वाले से दो लॉकर किराये पर लिया (50 रूपये एक लाकर ). अपना बैग और सामान लाकर के अंदर रखने के बाद हमने दुकान वाले को चाय नाश्ता के लिए बोला और पानी में नहाने के लिए चले गए.

अंदर पानी बहुत ही ठंडा था और वहाँ पर स्थानीय लोगो ने जगह-जगह दिवार बनायी थी इसलिए वह किसी स्विमिंग पूल की तरह दिख रहा था.
थोड़ी देर नहाने के बाद हम लोगो ने सहस्त्रधारा किनारे बैठ के चाय और परांठे खाये।

My first hill ride from Delhi to Dehradun and Mussourie

By

While planning for the route, we had no idea about the Saharanpur road conditions and more worse was leaving the highway for a while, anyway, next 40 kms or so were on kind of worse unending roads. You can imagine the roads with the fact that I was not driving straight literally even for a second and there was no road at all but just potholes filled with mud and water. We all were literally praying that when this road would come to an end cursing the local SP MLA.

मसूरी की यात्रा मे पानी का विकराल रूप

By

हरिद्वार से रूड़की के रास्ते मे पता नहीं कितनी बार हमारा रूट बदला गया, रास्तो का तो पता ही नहीं चल रहा था। लोगो के आगे पीछे चलते हुए और लोगो से पूछते हुए ही हम आगे बढ़ रहे थे। किसी तरह रूड़की पहुचे तो फिर से हमें नए रास्ते पर डाल दिया गया, उस रास्ते पर आगे गए तो फिर से गयी भैस पानी मे। आगे फिर सड़क पर पानी ही पानी दिख रहा था और बहुत सारी गाड़िया किनारे पर खड़ी हुई थी, हमने भी गाड़ी रुकवाई और पैदल ही वहा पहुचे, आगे का नजारा भी डराने वाला था। सड़क का एक हिस्सा टूट चूका था जो की बस की वजह से टूटा था और पूरी सड़क पर पानी था, वाहन ले जाते हुए लोग इसलिए डर रहे थे कि उसके वजन से सड़क धस न जाए। हमारी भी हालत ख़राब क्योकि पीछे भी रास्ता बंद और यहाँ भी कभी भी हो सकता था। उसके बाद १-२ गाड़ी वालो ने आगे निकलने का मन बना ही लिया क्योकि वहा रुकने से कोई फायदा नहीं था, अगर एक बार सड़क टूट जाती तो फिर हम कही भी नहीं जा सकते थे, उन लोगो ने पहले गाड़ी से उतरकर पैदल ही रास्ता पार किया ताकि गाड़ी का वजन कम रहे उसके बाद ड्राईवर ने अकेले गाड़ी धीरे धीरे बाहर निकाल ली, उन्हें देखकर हमने भी ऐसा ही किया और फिर से यात्रा शुरू कर दी। उसके बाद हमें इतनी दिक्कत नहीं हुई और लगभग ५ बजे हम पुरकाजी पार कर चुके थे। फिर हम कुछ खाने के लिए एक ढाबे पर रुके, वहा पर भी काफी लोग थे जो पीछे से आये थे और कुछ को हरिद्वार ही जाना था लेकिन रास्ता बंद होने की वजह से वो वही फस गए थे। एक व्यक्ति से हम मिले जिसकी पत्नी और बच्चे हरिद्वार से आ रहे थे लेकिन रास्ते मे कही फसे हुए थे और वो भी आगे नहीं जा पा रहा था, वो काफी चिंतित था। उस वक़्त हमें लगा कि अगर हम मसूरी से सुबह न निकलते या कही और रूककर और थोडा समय ख़राब कर देते तो शायद हम भी पीछे ही कही फंसे होते।

We also took tickets for a round trip in boat. These tickets were valid for one hour for return journey. It means we had sufficient time to bath and roam at another side of Ganga Ji. The boat took us to another bank in just few minutes. As it was Baisakhi day, a lot of people were taking bath on Eastern Ghats. We also took bath in Holy Ganga ji.
