♥️ ALL I DO IS MEANINGFUL TRAVEL! ♥️
Every action performed must have a significance. If not, it's a waste of effort and time.
🕉️ It's a blessing to travel places rich in historical happenings. Being at such places impart a great deal of knowledge. One must have the ability to perceive such knowledge. 🕉️
There's has always been a purpose with all my travel. And, here's a tale from one of my recent travel to the Mighty Himalayas that kindled me!
The word Kedarkantha means Throat of Lord Shiva. Kedarkantha was supposed to be the original Kedarnath temple but Shiva, who disguised himself as a bull hid himself from the Pandavas. Bheema spotted the bull and recognized it to be Lord Shiva. He held on to the bull not letting it go. In the resultant struggle, the bull was torn into five parts that appeared at five different locations.
This resulted into the Panch (Five) Kedar:
🕉️ Kedarnath – Back of Lord Shiva;
🕉️ Kalpeshwar – Hair of Lord Shiva;
🕉️ Rudranath – Face of Lord Shiva;
🕉️ Tungnath – Arms of lord Shiva; and
🕉️ Madhyamaheshwar – Navel of Lord Shiva.
Locals believe that during that time, the throat of Lord Shiva fell at Kedarkantha peak and that’s how the peak got its name.
A small temple dedicated to the Lord is situated at the summit of Kedarkantha peak.

Nyawal Village, Upper Manang, Nepal.
At 3660m above sea level and climbing, this was a such a beautiful, scenic trek where I walked the NATT-trails (which are new trails which avoid the road, allowing for better acclimatisation for Thorong La Pass as these trails are at a higher elevation). Nyawal is very small, yet pleasant village, in the district of Manang. The village would suit anyone who wants to trek in the wilderness whilst experiencing traditional mountain culture.
Starting at the village of Ghyaru, the Trail starts from the Chorten and goes past barley and buckwheat fields. These two crops are alternated every year. Climbing up the trail you will pass several mani walls to reach a viewpoint with a big stupa and a beautiful view. A little further below you can see the ruins of Ghale Dzong, an old forte that was used by the Ghale family when they ruled this part of the valley 800 years ago. If you take the trail leading to the ruins then take the trail leading west from there and it will rejoin the main trail. Descending through and aromatic pine forest you will pass some Meadows to climb again to an even bigger Stupa with an excellent view over the entire valley in the trekking season there is a little tea shop open.
I woke up early to watch the November 2016 super moon set below the horizon. Fortunately, I had carried my camera equipment in my backpack on the trek with me so got to take a few photographs. It was a site I’ll never forget!
God bless Nepal. 🙏🏽❤️ 🇳🇵 #himalayan#trek#mountains#nepal#manang#pilgrimage

I am camping at this place tonight, it's beautiful and the best thing is I am receiving 4G here (not continuous though) but I guess it should be enough for uploading pics and stories, this place is at 2855 meters and the whole town of Manali is visible underneath me, I can't wait for the dark so that it will light up beautiful ❤️ Reaching here was a hard job, it's the most steep trail I have ever been and the extra ~7 litres of water added a significant weight to by backpack.
Shoulders are hurting! Should be fine by morning...
This was where we stayed during the first night of our trek 😴 The sweetest tea house & the owner was a little old lady who made the most delicious food 🍲
The further up the mountains we went the more basic the accommodation became 😆 Still loved it all though! #nepal #annapurnasanctuary
What’s your favorite type of accommodation?? Small & unique OR big & fancy??
Whenever I look at the mountains, they fill me up with immense gratitude. When we are curled up inside our little room, we find it hard to imagine that a world exists outside which is so full of magic and wonder. But it only takes one step – just one step – to break away from the shackles and seek that magical world.
It takes courage and willpower to take that unconventional path. Often times, I have found myself walking on the trails that lead to nowhere. The unknown cites and the unknown faces show me how unpredictable the life is.
But I keep moving with a tiny hope inside me that I will find my destination. I seek the mountains because I know that I am not meant to be locked inside the darkness of my room. So, despite the hurdles and the pains, I keep walking.
And when I see such breathtaking views unfolding in front of me, they send me a message that I am not sure where I am going, I know that I am on the right path.
