Trip Report Pauri- The Magical Land!

What to say about my experience in Pauri... everything started in a day of clear sky, I took the bus from Rishikesh to Pauri which is the most used route to reach Pauri, the scenery of the journey was amazing, half of the road follows the path of the river Ganges and the other half goes through the forests in the mountains. When the bus got on the mountains I had my first sight of the Himalaya, that moment was magical. After 5 hours of travelling, I reached at V Resorts Pauri, I was greeted by the staffs which came across to be very friendly and helpful during my stay in the resort. The place where V Resorts Pauri is located is unbelievable, the view of the valleys and the range of mountains are amazing, but what made me lose my breath was the sight of the Himalayas from the resort, there is almost 180° degree view, it's simply incredible! After this day I stayed for the next 3 months, the most peaceful time of my life, the rooms were very comfortable and the local food is simple but very tasty.
I'm a kind of person who loves to explore the surroundings and in Pauri it was not different, I started to explore every location nearby, I went to the villages, visited the temples, discovered some forgotten historic places and enjoyed my time doing awesome treks in the amazing region where Pauri is located. The places which I loved to visit were the Temples Laxman and Kyunkaleshwar -both more than a thousand years old. Also, there were other incredible places like the Ransi Ground, one of the highest stadiums in India and other villages which are relics of the Indian society.
Living in this magical place I could learn a lot about the locals. It's amazing to see how they manage their fields in the mountains, how they enjoy their time and live their lives. I can say that the villagers were always happy and friendly. When I went for my walks I always received invitations for chai and biscuits in their own houses, this was an amazing opportunity to learn about the place.
When I left the place I felt emptiness in my heart…
