Doesn't it look like this picture has so much to say..?

A much about itself being, in a lost world! Lost in itself, in the heaven of it's own.

IMG_5593 Large.jpeg
Life is something at the top of an unknown hidden Paradise! A paradise which was the main Pathway between the two Districts of Himachal Pradesh.

IMG_5577 Large.jpeg
As Just Heard form my great grandparents discussing about this lost wonderland Mahili Thach! which is the first stair of Kalihani Pass. A Pass beyond which The Great Kangra Valley lies.

IMG_5498 Large.jpeg
So I finally decided to explore the first stair of Kalihani Pass and Hike the magnificent Mahili Thach alone.

IMG_5495 Large.jpeg

This unknown adventure begin after my Mahili Thail expedition when after reaching Mahili Theel I decided to Hike Mahili Thach all alone. I was just all alone in this vast wonderland. Miles and miles long all that I could see was Just these Heavenly peaks still snowing in the hottest month of the year June!

IMG_5499 Large.jpeg
After reaching above the non vegetational zone above twelve thousand feet above the sea level all the vegetation that was visible was just these lush green wild grass and few of the hard bushes who had a great capacity to protect themselves form harsh climatic conditions.

So here form this point I stated my Solo Hike form Mahili Theel Basecamps. Form this place this whole region was looking like a curvature depicting that I earth is a spherical body.

IMG_5528 Large.jpeg
After walking few miles I reached at this mysterious field of Bethar A holy herb used as a air freshner by burning the dry leaves of it with coal.

IMG_5510 Large.jpeg
Bethar is considered as a holy plant because It is used in holy Dev Karys, Himalayan Gods.

IMG_5527 Large.jpeg
These species of plant only grows a a few places, thus considered as a rare plant in The Kullu Valley of Himachal Pradesh.

IMG_5509 Large.jpeg

As I was gaining the elevation more heavenly the view was getting. The peaks and all the houses and buildings were looking so tiny form this place as if I was at the top of this Place! It was just a memorable blessing to me visiting this place.

IMG_5514 Large.jpeg
As I was covering up my distance of the trek I noticed these soft bushes like Lime grass. These were not the lime grass but was similar to it. Do let me know guys if anyone is familiar with these plants in the comment section.

IMG_5516 Large.jpeg
Though A lot of obstacles in the trek like a portion of huge rock over which I had to make my way through...

IMG_5538 Large.jpeg

Just the will power of reaching at the top never stopped my form any sort of obstacles, Being all alone at a place like this was also a great challenge for me guys. Nobody knows what What will happen next, A lot of serious problems like altitude sickness might also cause theft to life and may lead to death.

IMG_5524 Large.jpeg

At a certain points of the trek I was still a bit afraid of being alone at such a high altitude alone. A feeling of going back form just reaching at the top most of the destination was also making me a bit afraid.

IMG_5527 Large.jpeg
So I finally took the decision to take the risk and make achieve this challenge that I made to myself. The nature at it seems like in the picture was just beautiful for a while the whole story used to get changed during the night when the wind at this place used to blow at a tremendous speed of more than 20km/ph that hasn't been measured yet.

IMG_5528 Large.jpeg

This temperature that used to dip below minus 10 degree Celsius every night an not even a single drop of water stays at a liquid form make a challenge for mountaineers to camp at Mahili Thach.

IMG_5532 Large.jpeg
Thus everyone who visits this place used to camp neat the tree line where the trees protect the tents form hushing of by the stormy winds every day.

IMG_5533 Large.jpeg
I was at an altitude about 13455 feet above the sea level just hiking solo all over this vast wonderland. Though it was really very peaceful but dangerous too. Who knows that what would happen after a single step that I would take.

IMG_5541 Large.jpeg

The mighty Peaks of Dhauladhar Ranges of Himalayas that ween seen visible form this place were Snowing even at the hottest month of the whole year in The Himalayas. Local People believe that no one has ever visited these Mighty Mountains till now. A group of British Trekkers tried too but failed and still hasn't yet returned back form this place.

IMG_5544 Large.jpeg
After reaching at the half destination of the Mahili Thach, The weather seemed to be a bit angry. The temperature suddenly dipped to 4 degree Celsius form 10 degree which made me took a jacket off form my backpack.

IMG_5548 Large.jpeg
Even though I was a but afraid of being all alone at this place but I hope of Success was seen right in front of me. Form this place I could nearly see the top of Mahili Thach which is at an altitude above 14000 feet above the sea level.

IMG_5549 Large.jpeg
I saw a few of the tents of the people who once in a while used to stay at this place which were blown off by the extreme wind just the fabric of the tent was seen form this place.

IMG_5550 Large.jpeg
The peak which I have hiked till now.

IMG_5561 Large.jpeg
After hiking for more than two hours I finally reached at the top of the ridge form which The Top of Mahili Thach was around 100 metres in elevation.

IMG_5565 Large.jpeg
As once said that The best view comes after the hardest climb. So here I was just few yards away for successfully Hiking till the summit of Mahili Thach alone.

IMG_5570 Large.jpeg
At this point I was nearly just few yards away from the top of this wonderland Mahili Thach.

IMG_5577 Large.jpeg
So at 3: 14 PM I finally made it to the top of Mahili Thach!

IMG_5574 Large.jpeg
It was just a huge achievement form me do challenge myself and conquer the obstacles and fear of life. I tried to share each and every moment that I saw during my expedition guys. I tried to share the beauty of the Himalayas with you people. It is a great opportunity for me to be an messenger of The Himalayas sharing the hidden stories with the masses.
