It was approximately three years since we had our first trip together to the beautiful Andamans. It was now time for another tryst and what could be a better choice than the snow clad mountains. I knew I had to visit Himalayas, as my better half loves being in snow the most. I had also recently enrolled for the Club Mahindra membership and I wanted to reap its benefits. Keeping in mind the Club Mahindra constraint I shortlisted a few resorts in north. However as usual I was keen on travelling to the roads less travelled and hence my hunt immediately narrowed down to a name I had never heard before. A little time on Google & I knew that this is exactly the place I was looking for. A place whose beauty is just limited by your will and imagination. A place soaked in nature and so raw that you would hardly find any good hotels. A place not commercialized as a popular tourist location. A place where you wake up to the melodious calls of numerous birds dwelling in the forest around you. A place which is curtained from the polluted city life…The hidden hamlet – Kanatal.
