To travel is to evolve!

To travel to an unwelcoming terrain is often discomforting in the beginning. Getting to the Spitian cold desert at an altitude of above 14,000 ft. makes you wonder with awe & be shit-scared at the same time at every turn of the road. Not to mention, the news of landslides & general lack of oxygen keeps up the drama to the full gear.

But like in real life, travel shows that getting uncomfortable is how mankind has always evolved… A new dimension, a fresh perspective is added to one’s life, opening up the Pandora box of unfettered possibilities to life, love, & human endurance.

Magical Canvas of Spiti River Valley

There’s no dearth of mountainous regions one can visit when it comes to India – green mountains, brown mountains, blue rivers, and even snow-clad white mountains.

But what if all the above colors could be found at one place ? I never believed it till I saw it with my own eyes in the magical canvas of Lahaul and Spiti.

My plan for Spiti has been postponed incessantly for 4 years, but magic happens in life when it is meant to happen, not a moment before or after.

A last-minute plan with a cousin with no prior booking or planning is how I reached Spiti , a river valley which presents a different landscape at every turn of the road.

It almost feels like the creator is playing with a magic brush, painting a curious color combination at every turn. 🙂

Once you visit this landscape,you realize why the Himalayas were named ‘The Great Himalayan Range’. Viewing such a stunning landscape at the elevation of above 17,000 ft opens one’s eyes & mind’s eyes to the possibility of creator’s magical paint brush. 🙂
