HIMALAYAN MOUNTAIN SOJOURNS
Mountains are a perennial source of joy to those who have eyes that can appreciate beauties of nature. Nowhere does nature reveal her charm in greater abundance than at green and flowering mountain tops with transparent streams of water flowing down their slopes or on snow clad hills where sunlight weaves its magic colour into their virginal whiteness. To lover of mountains, the sound of waterfalls is like the joyful clapping of merry primitive dancers and the howling of night winds contains a musical pleasantness, which surpasses the highly sustained rhapsodies of man made organs. Lakes in high altitude, holding within their cup-like mountainous enclosures the watery wealth of the surrounding glaciers, treeless plateaus covered with rare varieties of grass, plants and flowers and yawing chasm into whose dark, unfathomable interior nature’s countless species of animals and plants carry on their fight for existence, are attraction so powerful and irresistible that no one can turn a deaf ear to their call.
These widely-scattered, ever-alluring treasures of nature are the trekker’s and camper’s greatest inducement to wander with a hungry heart in search of beauty, peace and adventure along the beautiful slopes of sky-embracing heights.
