I had never been to Himalayas until last week. I never climbed over 4000 ft until last week when I was staying at almost 8000 feet above sea level. It was a fascinating experience and I enjoyed to the core. A day before we arrived at Landour, we were told the weather was bad. In fact the night I was there, I could not fathom the zero degree temperature and was almost shivering. Add this to the altitude sickness you complete a worrisome stay. I was prepared to take this head on. The first day, we got into Lal Tibba walking and was received by a very clear sky and I could get a clear view of the Himalayal glacier with the white snow clad mountains within the reach, at least what was on display. Sipping a cup of strong and expensively and locationally priced coffee, we stood with amaze to gulp the beauty of nature ahead of us. The pine trees and deodhar forests added glory to the scene. I wished I could just trek down to the valley and then climb to the glaciers. Yes, I know this is not my cup of tea but there is no harm in giving it an attempt - at least on thoughts.
