(Yak- a unique mountain ride)
(Wild flowers spread their beauty all around the place)
As we drove further, we ( me and my family) reached a place where we were asked to take up a ride on the horses to reach several other destinations, as a car wasn't allowed to go any further. Though my brothers were all excited about the ride, my parents showed their reluctance. Company matters however beautiful a place may be. I decided that I would stay back with them, while my brothers would proceed with their ride....and it was indeed a great decision, since in order to make our trip interesting I inquired about the places that we would walk to and got to know that the zoo and the chini bungalow were great places that can be visited, so we started walking, all excited to explore the places....
(The beautiful white wolf)
The zoo (though did not have too many animals ) was a treat to the eyes and a big hug from nature..it was amazing..a small path, with huge trees on both the sides and big segregated areas for animals with an excellent provision of security...it was just great.
(The tall tress touched the sky)
I was surprised, that even after walking for miles on end, I wasn't as tired as I should have been...maybe the motherly charm of nature had taken care of my well being and its beauty had given my eyes a break from the stiff concrete that I had left behind in the city:)
After a great visit at the zoo, we made our way to the Chini bunglow...the famous place where during the Shimla Agreement, Mrs. Indira Gandhi and Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, the Prime Ministers of India and Pakistan respectively, stayed. After my eyes had feasted on the impeccable beauty of nature, the bunglow didnt have much of an effect on my senses..nonetheless the importance of the place made the visit worth while.
(This is where the horse ride took people)
Here I was rejoined by the rest of my family who had come back from their horse ride..the stories of their visit made me all the more happy about my decision of staying back ;) a steamy plate of noddles and nice hot cups of tea brought the various experiences and made them dance on a single table....we went back to shimla...the night had a lot to share on the mall road which was brimming with life..
