Hearing the word ‘Sacred’ naturally inculcates some sort of curiosity within me. This time when I heard the word in line with the word ‘Forest’, my excitement reached new levels. A week later, when I finally visited the Mawphlang Sacred Grove, I felt a vibe which was ethereal and difficult to explain.
The saying “Jobs fill your pockets, but adventures fill your soul” is true to the word. However in my scenario, both my pocket and soul were empty! I couldn’t do much about the pocket as salary day was still 15 days away; filling my soul with a new experience seemed like a good option. Adventures like Rafting, Paragliding and others require you to spend quite a fortune; fortune worth enough to pay my 3 month electricity bill but Hiking or Trekking don’t require much of one’s forever disappearing moolah. With a budget of mere 1300 bucks, I decided to take a Trek to Sandhan Valley which one of my friend marketed to me as the ‘Fireflies Trek’.
