Lovely adventure on the Green Carpet

My first trip to Khajjiar was one of sweet surprise and lovely adventure. It is a huge green carpet which has a lake in the center surrounded by massive snow capped mountains.There is a small hut like structure in the middle of the ground above the lake to park yourself when tired or eat or just take selfies. The day temperature was 6 degrees, quite cold and pleasant in the area with a mixture of Sunlight seeping between the Rhododendrons.I vividly remember the tanga/horsemen who would chase you for a ride on the horse for 20 minutes and show you the villages situated nearby in the forests of Khajjiar, thereby charging you a small fee of Rs. 200.So, we also happened to meet 2 horsemen with strong and frail looking horses with filmy names, who took us for a nice little ride in the forests, my horsemen constantly assuring me that my nice little frail horse can take my weight of course!!While returning back from our short ride, the horsemen spoke about an 80 ft. Shiva statue hidden in the middle of the forest near a temple. Now this was unheard of and we had no idea whether it was true, or were they simply asking for more time, meaning for money for their business.But no, they wouldn't lie on their livelihood and something in his eyes and their speech told us to turn back and look for the temple. Sometimes, it makes sense to take a risk and do something outside of your travel agenda.So after 25 minutes of more trotting and adjusting ourselves from falling off our horses, we reached the temple. As we got down from our respective tired transport, we couldn't believe the beauty and the power of what we saw in front of us.He stood in all of brown against the blue sky, radiant and majestic. It was the Shiva statue in all it's glory. I was stunned by the beauty surrounding me wondering how nobody even spoke about this beautiful piece of divine art in the area. My mind and soul went numb for a while, constantly looking at Him, as if he is going to answer a lot of Life's questions for me.I bowed my head to the statue, the mountains, the sky, the villagers and yes the Horsemen only to wonder when I will come back again!!

Amidst the forests

Beyond the ground, among the thick forests of Deodar, there are many small villages of Khajiiar. It is actually beautiful to see them being a part of nature, with their entire livelihood revolved around it. There are many villages in the trees, although all of them are at a distance from one another.
