The return journey. Pilgrimage part II.

Unable to fulfill the first mission, we have decided to visit another pilgrimage site popularly known as Sepji Goenpa on that same day. The site is not far as previous one. But we have to climb up the hill from the road point till the monastery. In order to avoid the hill we took shortcut while returning from earlier pilgrimage.

The hot afternoon was withering away when we scrambled and stumbled through the dense forest. The new path seems bit okay at the beginning but the situation kept on worsening. More the distance we covered, the forest grew denser with thick bushes and shrubs. After sometime we were landed in the thick lines of bamboo plants stretched in every direction. The forest seems totally virgin as there was no any sign of wild animal’s passage. It was too thick and bushy that provides impossible for us to move to and fro. We must be the first human to break the virginity of that forest I must admit undoubtedly.

Our destination.
After scrambling and crawling through the forest for almost two hours, we saw the sunlight glistening on the leaves of trees before us. The birds were whistling as they mourn for the setting of evening sun. Slowly trees seem to vanish and only the sweeps of grasses were stretched before us in the never ending line. At last we saw a tall cypress tree and no other trees can be seen around it. Slanting rays of evening sun were glimmering on the colorful paintings of monastery. Finally we knocked at the door of caretaker timidly like a tired a wind.
