Friday Travel Pic – Northeast India

I have tonnes of lovely travel pics that I want to share with you. Sometimes I don’t have a story to share with the pic, some times I don’t want to add words and distract you from enjoying the pic, the place (because I too, feel that way, sometimes).

“Would you like to buy some handmade woolen items?” She called out, as I strolled the tiny Buddhist village of Bagori near Harshil. Most houses around me were beautiful, old, and wooden, and were locked, so I was a little startled by the call.

Walking in the mountains has always felt so therapeutic. The only thoughts that run in my mind are things like where to walk, where to step (need to watch my steps, as I’m prone to accidents), and other such things which compel me to be present, to be there in the moment.

Pondicherry: Old Port and Pier

“Only fishermen are allowed on the Pier”, one of two lady Constables who were patrolling the area told me. I had asked them if I could walk on the pier. So I checked if I could walk on the shore around and under it, they nodded a yes.

Though at first I thought of walking from Harshil to Mukhba village – the winter abode of Ganga ji from the shrine at Gangotri, I didn’t. The tiny village of Mukhba is about 3ish km from Harshil – the charming Himalayan valley by the banks of Bhagirathi.
