Coming back from the trek to Bhavishya Badri, we saw the hot water springs.

This is a picture taken from these springs:

We reached our hotel by around 6:00 and since the two us had got thoroughly drenched in the rain, despite the umbrellas, we had to quickly offload our luggage to change. But, I had been wet for far too long and the hotel was really bad and I woke up the next morning with a stiff neck. I could hardly turn my head. When Vandana and I were sitting downstairs waiting for the others to come , we met a man who had escaped from Kashmir during the riots. His stories were heart rendering and all at once one does feel about the futility of the situation. Nature is bountiful, but many of us do our best to be exactly the opposite. Tapovan is especially famous because Parvati is supposed to have meditated here to get Shiva. There is a temple dedicated to her. The ride back was beautiful. We stopped at Pipulkoti for a breakfast of vadas, if you please:)

This is a picture taken of the pindari ganga along the Karna prayag- Kausani route.

We stopped at Kausani for the night. The clean air of Kausani and the altitude makes it an ideal place for a sanatorium and one is supposed to get beautiful views of all the mountains surrounding it. But, as luck would have it, it was cloudy – but I did manage to get some shots of the sun rise, though.

We reached Kanpur at 9:30 p.m. on the 26th May and thus another lovely trip to the mountains came to an end.

    The trip seems to be great and the group picture shows the group had a terrific company.I think it may be better to arrange in advance to have nice places to stay if possible. Nandini, you did a great job in describing the trip. The pictures posted on the blog are stunning, I feel envy of you folks. I wish I get a chance in life to enjoy like this in such a beautiful company and natural surroundings. Go on like this and keep the blog readers informed.
