The last time I needed Witness Protection (i.e. my friends) when I was on my trip to Kasol!
For those who don’t know what that place is, I can personally vouch that Kasol is the second heaven on earth and within a split second it can be “The heaven” on earth. From there, at nearby location is Kheerganga! It’s a 13 km long trek and famous/infamous (depends on perspective) for the thrill! It’s really is heaven, you will be walking between the mountain and that mountain is really gonna test your endurance.
First of all the track is amazing, you are gonna cross Parvati river few times and at one stoppage there is this hut next to the “Tree bridge”, I don’t know if there is any improvement now but when I traveled it there was a log connecting two mountains and it didn’t had anything to grab! Then there are stones waiting for you on the way, to be bluntly honest don’t cross that part at night! I did. And the chances of getting slipped there multiplies with each step forward at night.
At one point where the track turns to right has only rocks at that point, it only need one mistake and whoooosshhhhhhh! down in the river. That was the time when I needed the witness protection.
But when you reach at the top you are able to capture the whole sky, glimmering with stars, hovering above your head. You could talk to your inner self in that peace. That atrocity was surely paid off when I laid down on the mattress, when I breathed in that fresh air of victory, when I didn’t need my glasses to see the world, when the tension was relieved, when no exams were haunting my “S”. I had my Witness Protection to share those moments.
Thanks for reading.
