KISS. Keep it slow and steady. A method I used for my whole #EverestBaseCamp adventure. Stop a thousand times if you must. In fact I totally recommend that 🤣 cos then it'd allow you more time to actually see the nature as you take each step. And never give up.
Calmness is addictive .Solitude is addictive.
It was my last moments at Tapovan during my solo trip last september . With my eyes struck at Shivling peak , one full hour i gazed at this beauty in its eternal calmness.
Since my childhood i used to hear a lot of fascinating stories about these peaks in gangotri region from my father .When i saw the actual place with my eyes , my fantasy turned reality became more than overwhelming . I couldnt just take my eyes off it , and my soul simply refused to leave straight away. I had exerienced the kind of feeling before also but the intensity of this one was uncomparable.
However i had to take leave and after getting it completely mapped in my consiousness ,i started walking down, intermittently looking back and admitting yess it was real.
I believe that this place has some enchanting magnetism that wont allow you to leave without taking a part of its eternal bliss with yourself. Still in search of calmness like this that would not let me go away so easily.

Two young nuns live there and look after the place and they were very surprised to find our camp when they returned in the dark from the village. We were so heartily welcomed by them and had a chance to attend morning puja ritual. The power created by these young women during the puja was truly overwhelming and this morning is one of the most memorable moments of our trip"

Day 7 of the #roopkundtrek comes in the form of a curse on your knees and ankles as you descend a staggering 5,000 ft. all the way to the base camp through a 9 hour / 15 km. trail. I have always hated descents, not only because of the physical pain they cause but because of the fact that you have to leave such beautiful serenity and peace only to get back to our screwed up civilization.
