This mystical paradise is no good than living a Murakami’s dream (those who read can comprehend!). The buzz of the bees, singing in harmony – a melancholy song like dripping sound of rain. Those who paint/draw this hiking place is like a canvas ready to surrender in the realms of botanist colors.
And for people like me, it is an abode of God! Who knows what enchanting sounds of deep meditation is sparing the place so virgin! When the endless chaos of metropolitan city thumped by life, like dandelion is deprived of sunlight, this place evokes my senses to altogether new dimensions.
Okay, so before I go more poetic, let’s discover the secrets of this mesmerizing place…
