A Journey to the Himalaya

in #travel3 years ago (edited)

When I was India a couple of months ago, I finished my trip by spending 1 month in the Himalaya more exactly the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.

Parvati Valley - Parvati being the last consort of Shiva, the valley is named after her .. A true heaven where the valley is populated by the scent of apple groves & wild hemp

To get there I ended up taking a 40 hrs train ride from Goa up to Chandigargh (A city at the footsteps of the Himalaya ) then a 15hrs bus to Manali.

I stayed in Vashisht, a small village up above from Manali. It was founded by guru Vashisht who was Ram's & Laxman's guru.

No need to take a shower everyday I would go bathe in the hot springs.

A very easy life, this was a nice way to finish my journey in India as I knew I was coming back to Ireland & my summer would be busy.

I took all the time I needed, to rest, do yoga, sing mantra, meditate, go for long walks in the forest, & some bike rides around the valley.
