as a kid i have had many trips with my parents but i want to tell about my 1st ever trip with my friends. i was 18 then and wanted to plan a fun filled adventurous trip sans any luxuries. we all wanted this to be a completely different experience from what we have had from our other trips with our parents.
after a lot of discussions and deliberation we chose to go to manali in india. it was summer time in india and manali was one of the most sought after tourist destinations for summers in india.
also our expectation from out trip to be adventurous and fun filled seemed to be getting true when we read about possibilities of all the activities that we can do there.
River side camping, river rafting, rock climbing, para gliding, skiing and mountaineering. u could do it all there. so we got all the bookings made in advance from -snip- as it was a peak season and we did not want to miss out on any single activity.
the four day stay in manali was simply most satisfying and self realizing experience of my life. the feel that u get sleeping under the stars, its simply mystifying.
to all the readers out there, u must once experience a trip that is sans the luxuries and close to nature.
have a great time ahead. cheers!!
