Reminiscence of Sandakphu - Wanderwomen's journey - Day 5 - Srikhola, Rimbik

The morning at Srikhola was tremendous. It was Monday. We all were hell tired and our legs were barely able to move. We all woke up but there was a pleasant surprise waiting for us. We heard the rain. The heavy rain. Can you imagine yourself at a wooden cottage just near the speedy mountain river and you are watching the heavy rain falling over the glass windows. The massive sound of river waves and the roar of lightening made us to lie down even more. We were not in a moood to get up and walk. We just wanted to feel the rain and the weather and of course we all were feeling too lucky to spend a Monday like this. 

Later we all got up and had our tea and all. After standing near the window and watching the river 
flowing, we became super women and got tremendously energized. We dolled up and thought to shoot pictures near the Srikhola Bridge. After all girls right ? We always tend to find places to pose for an awesome Profile Picture. We all went to the bridge and did shoots. Laughed like anything. Shot some selfmade videos (Funniest in the whole trip and memorable too. Something I can not share) and then we headed towards Rimbik. Rimbik is just 6kms from Srikhola and the road is easy. Vehicles are easily available towards Rimbik.

Naiwrita and Me

Well Rimbik blew me with its serene calmness. A very small village/town in Darjeeling District and a 
very neat one. A must visit for weekend short trips. I won't say there is much to see as such landmarks. But if you love mountain and you love escaping, you can surely escape there. After reaching Rimbik, me and Arpita di never stopped. We just walked and walked. Wherever our eyes were reaching out. We explored rimbik. We visited schools, sat beside the clouds and spoke with the nature. I can not describe how beautiful we both were feeling. The weather was pleasant. We could feel the lite chilled wind passing down our ears. There is a very big monastery in rimbik. That should be visited if you are going there. Till the dusk swallowed the sunrays, we walked. We just walked and felt the mountains. It was our last day so me and Arpita di were keen on spending every single seconds. After we came back, we had Garma Garam Pakodas with hot cups of tea. It was the time to pack our sacks in final mode. We were sad. We knew we were going to miss Mountains a lot. One thing we had in our mind, a feeling of regret. We trekked this high but could not see the Sleeping Buddha in the way we imagined. We were literally sad to leave Himalaya.

That Cute School 

I wish I could show you all how these kids were playing.

A very sweet thing happened there. Me and Arpita di were doing hi to the kids
in the class out there. Can you spot the windows ? The teacher was already
in the class and the backbenchers were following us. They were too cute to do all the stuffs.
As if they were seeing through us. Loved being there.
