Why Staying at Shikhar Natural Resort is a Once in a Lifetime Experience?

People can have weird tastes when choosing the ideal alarm clock tunes. Some like waking up to a Katy Perry song, some like the Bhajan and hymns playing in the background and some just like the traditional elongated ring. Once they wake up, people have different routines, which ultimately lead to the same goal – getting set for the day. Some check their social media, some bask gazing out of their windows, some prefer a bed tea, so on and so forth. That might help you to get ready for your work, but do you think that is the right way to get ready for life?

Shikhar Nature Resort, Uttarkashi

Life is a poetic experience and we tend to forget it while living up to the routine. Hence, the following imagery might be difficult to imagine for many; but try doing it – Imagine, you wake up in the morning not by the tone of some pop song or some redundant alarm clock, but by the symphony of a river flowing beside your residence. When you walk out of your room, you are not greeted by newspapers or social media notifications. The Himalayas are standing on all the four sides, wishing you a glorious morning. Wherever your eyes can run, you see lush green landscaped gardens. River’s music in the background, Himalayas greeting you and your feet on green grass. Now the first thought coming to your mind would be – this is either heaven or virtual reality. Guess what, it isn’t.
