William Blake once said, “When the green woods laugh with the voice of joy, And the dimpling stream runs laughing by, When the air does laugh with our merry wit, And the green hill laughs with the noise of it.”
Wake up to misty hills, with the sounds of the Ganges snaking its way through the valleys and the sights of the mighty snowclad Himalayas perfectly lined across the horizon. With the sweet melodies of birds whispering in all their morning glory, the secrets of the forests will always be a mystery.
