So Let Recap Part 2

Namaste. Tumhe kaise ho?

Haha…Just a simple Hindi sentence about how are you? Since we gonna talk more about travelling in India.

So, let continue the travelog with the next destination in my first vacation.

Its NEW DELHI. The capital city of India. Less busier than Mumbai,  blessed with heritage colonial building, modern road system, and nice Northern cuisine.

Well, in Delhi we manage to visit several places such as
Jama Masjid ( the oldest mosque in India), Chadni Chowk (like Petaling Street in Malaysia, but more traditional and hectic),
Karim Briyani Restaurant (which local claim to be the best restaurant serving Biryani in Delhi),trying the new MRT line in Delhi( which pretty amazing considering I am in India…haha),Hazrat Nizamuddin Train Station ( one of the oldest and busiest train station in India, and for those who join tabligh, well….its is the biggest markas for tabligh in the world).

Next, we head to SHIMLA. The capital city for Himachal Pradesh state. The journey from Delhi using Tempo ( traveler van) took almost 12 hours. Only 1/3 of the road is highway, the rest is hairpin bends with endless corner.

Reaching Shimla, we head to the skiing area, called as Kufri. Here, we totally act like little child. Snow is everywhere. Where got snow in Malaysia except ABC weh! Haha. Dont ask how we act….Let the picture speak for us!

Last destination for this trip MANALI.

First impression, its damn cool man! We had the lowest ever temperature in the life, its -17°C. Haha, even more colder than my house freezer. We arrived from Shimla after 10 hours journey, and the road we went was small, on the left side is rough natural rock wall, and on the right side is steep bank which plunged into gorge of rapid flow river. Quite thrilling and heart pounding experience everytime we take a look at the window.

There is no need to go anywhere, the snow is everywhere!!!

We had our first snow fall, the feeling of melting snow crystal in the palm, and fresh snow taken into mouth. Wordless, the best moments at that time. Next, we head to Manali skiing centre, and had our first snow vehicle ride and skiing.

Skiing seems easy, but actually is not. The first fall completely thrown you away, and I had the feeling of ACL torn, well, med student obsession…haha. The best part is enjoying hot bowl of Masala Maggi and Chai ( tea in Hindi). Its never be enough with one order, so we went on ordering and ordering more😆

Before we head back to Delhi, we had the climax activity of this trip, PARAGLIDING & White Water Rafting. First, we had to ride on a car to climb up the mountains, where there is a cliff for the launching. Next, the pilot will hook you with the equipment and parachute, and he sat behind you.

Next, run as fast as possible down the cliff, and you was already on air flying like a bird!
