Mansa Devi Temple

Manasa Devi Temple seems to have a significant space among the minds of the devotees of Shakti, the goddess this temple is dedicated to. Perched on the top of Bilwa Parvat on the Sivalik Hills, the temple offers a splendid view of the mighty Ganges and the holy city of Haridwar. Rather than being a pilgrim centre, the temple makes its value higher among the adventure seekers as well because, the temple is accessible either only by trekking the high altitude or taking the recently established rope way. Chandi Devi Temple located very close to this shrine attracts a large number of devotees everyday as there is a belief that the two forms of Goddess Parvati, Mansa and Chandi stay close to each other.

What began as an adventure getaway for me, turned out to be, one of the most memorable experiences of my life. The landscape across the ride is magnificent, from rocky mountains to pine forests, every inch of our trip was fascinating. One of the most cherished experience would be when we camped at night in cozy tents, and cooked food over a camp fire right in the heart of a forest:) We explored Nelong Valley, went for crazy adventure sports in Rishikesh and even conquered the Vasundhara Falls trek. I've returned back from the trip with memories to last me a lifetime and counting down to the moment I can go back :)

Yes, the first few days were very impatient as we had to wait to make it to the Jaundhar Glacier. Then it came on the fourth day of trekking after we got to enjoy the lush beauty of the Har Ki Doon valley on the third day. Trekking was pretty easy and was very exciting. Must mention here about the treatment we got from the trek guides and staffs. They were helpful in all the ways and did their best to make us comfortable at such great heights.

Wow, what an experience. The entire place is so beautiful, I have had the best pictures clicked, for a photographer this place is certainly a must. Great trek, great people - I'm definitely going to Garhwal pretty soon. The entire region provides you with ample natural beauty - I'm truly in awe with this place.

Tunganath is the highest temple of Garwal. While I was on this trekking, I witnessed the pristine clear view of majestic peaks like the Panchchuli, Nanda Devi, Nilkanth and even Kedarnath. Chopta is too underrated. It even gives a beautiful and picturesque view of the whole Himalayas. I guess the early spring season is the right season to trek. The Rhododendron forest actually glows red as the flowers bloom during the spring. It was a very nice trek. It starts and ends in Haridwar. I had a great time. WOW, is an understatement to explain how awesome this trek was.

As I close my eyes, I can vividly recall the moment when I reached the peak after a long trek full of patience. There were tears of joy. I’m truly blessed. Incredible India!

A trek to the valley of flowers was something I have been looking forward to do for a long time. Finally, it happened in this July. I am a regular trekker, but Valley of Flowers was a new experience apart from every other trekking expeditions I have done. I went alone there. The most important thing I noticed here is the number of people who come to visit the valley. There were old age people also who were more energetic than the youngsters. Bikers were also there, mostly Royal Enfiled riders. I did not book through any tour operator but alone. I heard that going with a guide will help us very much to know more about the place but still I decided to go alone and I planned it for one week. Hence I visited some other places in the Himalayas. From different websites I understood the things to be taken during the tour. July was not that cold and the snow cover was comparatively less. Yet the wind was slightly cold so that I had to wear jackets throughout. Valley of Flowers was really beautiful. I have not seen so many flowers as in the pictures of it found somewhere online yet there were a lot of meadows with different flowers. The surrounding was actually soothing. I took hundreds of photos in my mobile phone. The names of flowers I saw there were unknown to me but I enjoyed the beauty very well. Since I have gone in my bike, some portions were difficult for me to cross but still I sought help from some of the people I met on the road to get the correct direction. I went to Leh also after the trip. But I got to know that many of the troupes coming to visit the Valley of Flowers seek the help of different tour organizers to make the tour easy. I am also thinking to do an extensive Himalayan trip next time with the help of some tour organizers. Also, I recommend Valley of Flowers from the bottom of my hearts to everyone.
