Leo Saldanha  Trek leader | Indiahikes Columbia Athlete 🏃‍♂️ Hopelessly romantic about the mountains. 📍Bombay/Himalayas 🏔️

I recently got back in connectivity after leading a batch to Kedarkantha in Uttarkhand. The team could not make it to summit due to heavy snowfall, yet put in all efforts to endure the weather and get as far as they could get. I'm going to term this is as one of my favorite winter trek as of now. Also, this photograph was taken on our pursuit to the summit. Here's me sending you this virtual postcard and lots of love from the mountains. Cheers!

"Listen, Morty, I hate to break it to you, but what people call “love” is just a chemical reaction that compels animals to breed. It hits hard, Morty, then it slowly fades, leaving you stranded in a failing marriage. I did it. Your parents are gonna do it. Break the cycle, Morty. Rise above. Focus on science." - Rick and Morty

And kid, you’ve got to love yourself. You’ve got to wake up at four in the morning, brew black coffee, and stare at the birds drowning in the darkness of the dawn. You’ve got to sit next to the man at the train station who’s reading your favorite book and start a conversation. You’ve got to come home after a bad day and burn your skin from a shower. Then you’ve got to wash all your sheets until they smell of lemon detergent you bought at the local grocery store. You’ve got to stop taking everything so goddam personally. You are not the moon kissing the black sky. You’ve got to compliment someones crooked brows at an art fair and tell them that their eyes remind you of green swimming pools in mid July. You’ve got to stop letting yourself get upset about things that won’t matter in two years. Sleep in on Saturday mornings and wake yourself up early on Sunday. You’ve got to stop worrying about what you’re going to tell her when she finds out. You’ve got to stop over thinking why he stopped caring about you over six months ago. You’ve got to stop asking everyone for their opinions. Fuck it. Love yourself, kiddo. You’ve got to love yourself.

Before you even notice, you will have settled. You will enjoy your Monday morning coffee and think it’s just what you needed to start your day. You will visit the library every Tuesday, hoping to find some new escape in a new book, just to get away from your life. You will eat lunch with your best friend every Wednesday, order the usual at your favourite restaurant, you’re satisfied. On Thursday you go for a walk around your neighbourhood to clear your mind, and look forward to tomorrow. On Friday evening you think you’ve made it, so you reward yourself with delivery pizza and an alright movie you’ve seen more than six times. Saturday, there’s still a day separating you from Monday, so you’re fine. Sunday, you dread, dread, until you go to bed. Then it’s the same old routine, slowly getting through life, thinking you enjoy it, when you could easily learn to enjoy something else. How do you know what you need to get through the day is just coffee? Maybe it’s just telling yourself, hey, I can do it, there’s more to look forward to. Instead of living your life through books why don’t you go on an adventure and take a risk like your favorite fictional character? How do you know that meal is really your favourite thing at a restaurant when you’ve never let yourself taste something else? Is looking forward to the end of the week your motivation to actually get through life? If it is, why, when you’re just living the same old shit week to week, nothing will change. You won’t change. You think you’re happy, but couldn’t you be happier?

PS. No I'm not peeing.

Bhagwabasa - 14100ft.

Our last campsite before the summit ascent to Roopkund. Also one of the most beautiful sunsets of my life. They say that when an artist dies, god lets them paint the sky and lately I've been thinking a lot about what my sunset would look like.

Also, we're 3k of us dreamers today. Thank you for all the love, instafam. Let's grow together!

Imagine if trees gave off Wifi signals we would be planting so many trees and we'd probably save the planet too. Too bad they only produce the oxygen we breathe.

One of the cleanest and the bluest river I've seen.

This photograph was taken near one of our campsites on the Tarsar Marsar trek, in Kashmir. And I still feel that this picture does no justice to its beauty. Valleys, rivers, forests, hills, pastures, you name it and you've got them all. Pleased to have this - not so faint memory, etched deeply.
Lidderwat campsite, Tarsar Marsar.
