The track to Tungnath is silence itself. Even the stones seem to have soaked it over the centuries, and radiate a kind of calm. A lone tea shack courtesy a local resident serves as a travellers’ haven here. An occasional shepherd turned limejuice seller may also be spotted. His sheep dot the meadows while he mixes a cool glass of neembu pani.

Nothing beats a drive in the hills here! Take a car, a bus, a taxi, a bike, a cycle, or walk… The Himalayas are awesome :-) Our tour operator Sunil Bhatnagar told us that the same Himalayas that provide solace to tourists and yogis can drive the locals to alcohol after sunset, as there isn’t much else to do other than be with nature or socialise.
