Bamsaru Khal Trek

By

In the morning, view outside our tents  was spectacular. We saw snow capped Mountains all around , took some pics, but after 15-20 Min  Mist covered the valley and mountains were not visible. We were supposed to start early , but got  late, we finished our breakfast by 8:30AM and started  walking towards Gidara.

From Dayara one black dog started walking with us , we thought it will go away after sometime but it  remained  with us till the end of trek. The Dog was too hairy, and resembled a  bear , got scared of him twice, he also had a bad habit  of crossing  the path when there was a difficult climb or narrow path.

While on the trek an idea popped up that we should also visit “Dodital” ( Lord Ganeshji Birthplace ). Dodital situated at a distance of 30 km from Dayara Bugyal, is also popular among tourists. Going there meant an  extension of 2 More days , which we could not  afford. Hence all  agreed to keep walking towards Gidara.

ऋषिकेश हरिद्वार से करीब २५ किलोमीटर दूर हैं. इसको हिमालय का प्रवेशद्वार भी कहा जाता है. ऋषिकेश हिन्दुओ के सबसे पवित्र स्थलों में से एक हैं. ऋषिकेश को केदारनाथ, बदरीनाथ, गंगोत्री, यमुनोत्री आदि का प्रवेश द्वार भी कहा जाता है. यह कहा जाता हैं कि यंहा पर भगवान विष्णु ऋषिकेश अवतार में प्रकट हुए थे. इसलिए इस स्थान का नाम ऋषिकेश हैं. वैसे तो ऋषिकेश में सैकड़ो मंदिर आश्रम हैं, पर समय अभाव के कारण में कुछ ही मंदिरों और आश्रमो में जा सका.

हरिद्वार यानि हरि का द्वार, या हरद्वार कहो यानि भोले कि नगरी. हरिद्वार हिन्दुओ का सबसे बड़ा तीर्थ स्थल, देव भूमि उत्तराखंड का प्रवेश द्वार. माँ गंगा पहाड़ों से उतरकर हरिद्वार में ही मैदानों में प्रवेश करती हैं. इसलिए हरिद्वार का एक नाम गंगा द्वार भी हैं. हरिद्वार कुम्भ कि भी नगरी हैं.

Maha Shivratri , Kovad Mela and a long weekend…

By

We had been stuck in Gurgaon for quite some time, due to work, weather or some other celebrations in the riends/family circle. Luckily Mahashivratri Monday holiday coincided with no other commitments. So, we decided to get out during this long week-end.
For three whole days –February 18 to 21. Decided against hill resorts, due to weather, and a strong call from Haridwar to attend the Ganga Arti and a holy dip at Har-ki-Pauri. WE checked up on the Haridwar from various write-ups on the Ghumakkar site just to refresh ourselves with any tips, though we have visited the place number of times.

क्या है घुमक्कड़ी…
पढ़ो तो इक किताब है घुमक्कड़ी
देखो गर तो इक ख्वाब है घुमक्कड़ी
हंसो तो आसान बन जाती घुमक्कड़ी
सुनो तो ज्ञान बन जाती घुमक्कड़ी

Dear friends, in my previous post of the series, you saw how important the reminiscences are in our travelling. Many a times, we forget other details of our travellings and remember it by the sweet & sour memories of that travelling. Travelling is not simply going to some places or reaching the heights of Himalayas… when we rewind the films of our travels and see it frame by frame … we find that it has changed our life altogether. It has made us more confident, given us more tolerance, given us more strength and sometimes even changed our perspective towards life and its aim.

Every year it easily takes about 8hrs to reach there. But this time 5hrs was only possible beacuse of the improved road conditions. After reaching my grandparents place, got freshned for lunch. I was dead tired as I did not sleep the previous night, above this the fever and throat infection and then driving. But still “Itni Door Ghar pe Baithne Ke liye Thoda na aaye Hain”. After all, We are Ghumakkars and Travelling is our main motive.
