Clouds like cotton, rows of green hills all around. In the kingdom of green, it is like a lake of white clouds! Indeed you wonder if such a beautiful scene like a dream can be seen in reality? And even if caught, you may have to go to a faraway unknown country. But the surprising thing is that there is such a Meghpuri in our beloved motherland; Whose name is Sajek Valley.
Sajek’s appearance is not comparable. Sajek is dressed in colourful outfits throughout the year. So you can visit Sajak at any time of the year. However, in the rainy season, autumn and winter, the game of clouds is seen more around Sajek. So this is the best time to visit Sajak.
At this time, there is a slight hint of winter. At some point in the day, the top of the hill is covered with fog. After the last afternoon, the golden lion-sun god was leaning on the hill, leaving the western sky—green hills wrapped in the sun’s golden colour. At the end of the day and at the beginning, this colour should cover the whole mountain in gold.
Crossing the valley, the folds of the mountains gradually became sky-scraping there. And forest boundaries across this long valley. As soon as the afternoon passes and the evening descends, the natural silence surrounds the hill.
Like the monsoon winds, strong winds blow and touch the mountains below. The gusts of wind seem to be increasing as the Kanlak neighbourhood of Sajek is at the top of the surrounding neighbourhoods.
The sky is full of stars and the Milky Way. Bunch of stars are burning in the atmosphere extremely secluded hilltop neighbourhood Kanlak. The monsoon winds are blowing intermittently to the tops of the hills. Standing on the top of a mountain that touches the sky, even the familiar night seems unfamiliar.
After hearing all these descriptions, you may think that Sajek Valley will be gone soon. But before that, you need to know some information-
