As you’d have noticed from my photo blogs, I love to travel. Me and my husband both do. He also loves walks and hikes. I am a bit lazy in this respect but somehow I get convinced everytime to take up these incredible hikes. And while the views are amazing, the pains next day are so awful. Today is one of those next days.
Yesterday we went for a trek called Triund in Mcleodganj. It is about 9 km one way (I think 6 miles). And it is called a beginner Himalaya trek of moderate difficulty. Liars!! No doubt it was crazy scenic but it was far from moderate difficulty.
I dragged my feet all the way to the top huffing and puffing throughout. And all the way down with my legs screaming at every step. Probably should’ve camped at the top.
But what a sense of accomplishment! I know I complain a lot about my health but I was so happy when my body didn’t totally give up, midway the hike. Despite the kidney stone and whatnot.
Oh and another thing, this trek doesn’t have any public utilities (washroom) along the way so you know, you need to relieve yourself in the vast beauty of nature, if you have to. Lol. Tell that to somebody who needs to drink litres and litres of water of water daily.
Anyway, I did it. All the way up and back. We started at 7 in the morning and were at the top by 11. Then we wandered around, took pictures and laid in the grass. Had some food and tea and then I fell asleep!! I snored under the sun on wet grass!!
That was about yesterday and today my feet won’t listen to me anymore. They are moving willy nilly, if at all. And everytime I look at stairs I start shivering. But I’m sure I’ll be fine by tomorrow. The hotel we’re checking into tomorrow has a nice jacuzzi that I’m so looking forward to falling asleep in 😂 😴
Here are some more pictures. Enjoy!
