Miss Rosy and her sisters are a wild bunch! Unlike their cousins which are cultivated and sold by florists, which enjoy the best brand recall among poets, lovers and artists...these have fewer petals. But these wild roses have a fragrance so intoxicating that you just have to stand and admire them! Wonder when we would be able to transfer fragrances with technology!

Miss Lilium Sunshine! She is pretty and dainty. Always ready for a hug with her petals outstretched!

Yellow Lily from the #ValleyOfFlowers. The Lilium oxypetalum is a netive of the Himalayas...they are smaller than the lilies seen otherwise. .

There in the distance you see Gangharia town... nestled in the hills. This small town is a base camp for those going on treks to #ValleyOfFlowers or #HemkundSahib. The town is cold and damp. You pay Rs 50 for a bucket of warm water and if you need to get your clothes dried you may end up paying anything from Rs 50 too Rs 100 a piece, depending on the weather and your desperation level. You can reach this place by trekking from Govindghat or riding a mule. It also has a helipad...but it has not ATMs! We were low on cash and managed through the most enterprising method of 'jugaad'! But it's advised you carry a enough cash.

"There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep Sea, and music in its roar.
I love not Man the less, but Nature more."
-Lord Byron

Happy me! This was the first trek I have ever done so for most part of the trek, I walked with my eyes only on my path. Looking up, the steep path intimidated me. Looking down, the steep fall scared me. But every once in a while when I was reminded to look around....it hit me how gorgeous my surrounding was! The feisty River Alakhnanda behind me makes her way through the rocks with more spunk and confidence than me! There's so much to learn from nature! (Pic credit: @robinlouisz)

Travelling with people you don't know too well is like playing blind poker. But sometimes you get lucky and end up with aces in your hand! Thanks to this awesome bunch, the trip to the hills in Uttarakhand was more fun than expected. From supporting each other when the going got tough to celebrating a birthday with whatever little we had. From dealing with no cash/no ATM to holding on to each other (literally!) when the bus driver decided to drive like Formula One racing in the valley. From kicking people out of the bed (people claim it was inadvertently!) to a bus ride sitting behind the driver. It was a fun ride (pun intended!). We need to do this again people! #BadBoysOfUttarakhand #BenTopi
