Ain’t we all get excited in winters and pack our bags to catch some snow and head towards the hills well all delhites must have experience this and well i am really fond of the snow and the captivating mountain landscape . So this time I planned to go on a road trip to a small village in Uttarakhand “ Kanatal ” an unexplored destination which is 2 hours drive from Mussoorie. I could have taken my trip to Mussoorie but i wanted to go to some place less crowded with more of silence and peace. The area where my hotel was located was much more above than the city of kanatal. The Pine Queen was constructed a year ago and i booked it through online site “booking.com, they provide some real good deals . I am a fan of natural beauty and when I saw the unexplored beauty hidden in the mountains covered with sunlight and freezing air roaming all over my face , i fell in love at that very sight. It was my first day and I was already attracted to those mountains and that fresh air . Next when i woke up I saw the view which almost all of us would dream of watching . Yes I know the most important thing is good company but isnt it better if we have amazing roads with mesmerising view and this place is no less than heaven for your family holiday or to go out on a trip with your friends. I am sure the you’re going to miss the evening drive in mountains of kanatal until the next time you come again. Yes I wasn’t able to see the snow which I wanted but i guess I’ve seen more beautiful places and things which are still unexplored.
