Live your life to the fullest. Fill your heart with love and positive energy. Stay happy and keep travelling.
Choose your own adventure 🇷🇼 In the last few weeks I've gone from knowing nothing about these mountain gorillas to being slightly obsessed with these amazing primates that share 98% genetic similarities with us humans - from reading about them, watching the film Gorillas in the Mist (highly recommend), and trekking through the forest to see them today. Only living in the volcanic mountains in Rwanda, Congo and Uganda, and nowhere in captivity, the number of these mountain gorillas have rebounded from the lows of 200 and closed to extinction, to now 1000 strong, though still critically endangered. They share so much with humans in their family habitat and structures, individual personalities, intelligence, leadership, respect, strong bonds, sympathy, playfulness and so much more. The baby gorillas are also the absolute cutest. So blessed 🦍 .
One of the classic treks of India, Rupin pass is one of the most favorite and exciting treks of India. Rupin Pass is ornamented with U-shaped valleys, and beautiful snow clad mountains. Many experienced trekkers refer the Rupin Pass trek as an orchestra- that which slowly develops like music and takes an upbeat and adventurous turn later!
Through the trek, walk through lush green rhododendrons, clear blue skies and calm winds that will give you more than it takes.
To say the least, yesterdays sunset ride was... spectacular. After spending most of the day in the car, we stopped at our last opportunity to ride. We were hoping to simply squeeze in a few miles before hopping back in the car, but as the sun set through the mist, this happened... The best of moments are often not planned for, so you have to be ready to snag a few shots when the light is right!
