Adarsh Gourav is a passionate travel enthusiast and his Instagram is proof enough. The latest one in his travel diaries is a jungle trek with his friends. Of The White Tiger fame, the star treated us to a delightful sneak peek of his adventure with a series of pictures. In an Instagram post, we could spot Adarsh sitting on a rock beside a serene stream wearing oversized shorts. From his dripping hair, we can only assume that he ventured into the water a short while before. The next frame captured him and his friends strolling along a tree-lined road with his friends. Next, he shared the scenic beauty along the trek's path with a picturesque shot of a railway track. However, the highlight of his trip was a thrilling video. Standing in a shallow part of the stream he fearlessly grabbed a prop root and attempted to climb it, showcasing his adventurous spirit. Summing up his jungle escapade he aptly captioned his post, "Jungle mantra."
If you are planning a trek before the end of the monsoon here are some 'Jungle Mantra' inspired takeaways to include in your getaway:
1. Camp by a Waterfall
If your trek leads you to a waterfall, consider camping nearby. Falling asleep to the soothing sound of falling water is an unforgettable experience that allows you to connect with nature in a unique way.
2. Meditate by a River
Find a quiet spot by a river or stream and meditate. The sound of flowing water combined with the peaceful ambience can be incredibly calming. Use this time to rejuvenate your mind and body, allowing the natural surroundings to guide you into a state of serenity and mindfulness.
3. Experience Local Traditions
Check if there are any local monsoon festivals or rituals happening nearby, and seize the opportunity to join in the celebrations. Participating in these events offers a wonderful glimpse into the regional culture, allowing you to interact with locals, sample traditional foods, and witness age-old customs.
The monsoon season brings out a plethora of bird species. Carry binoculars and enjoy birdwatching during breaks. Observing these vibrant feathered creatures in their natural habitat adds an educational and entertaining aspect to your trek.
If the clouds clear up at night, take the opportunity to indulge in stargazing. Once skies have cleared up, monsoon nights often offer a chance to witness celestial beauty and excellent clarity for star-spotting.Comments
