Relishing a cup of chai while you overlook a sea of clouds is the most cherished gift of the monsoon; the fall and its silence spares you room for introspection, retrospection, and contemplation.

Crackling brooks, whispering pines, the sensation of cold morning dew and grass on your bare feet, the changing hues of the evening sky, and the majestic Himalayas running through the entire horizon ridge. See yourself here yet?
