Hansling Peak:The peak with a scintillating effulgence

The Hansling


Hansling peak is located in Uttarakhand in the Kumaon Himalayan ranges and is best contemplated from Munsiyari.It. is mostly discernible amongst other neighbouring peaks of Nanda Devi and the Panchachulli mountains from the Khalia Top Bugyal.The peak dazzles in the presence of the morning sun and its scintillating effulgence at twilight whams travellers and mountain lovers with its substantial actualization.There are other peaks surrounding Hansling in the Kumaon spectrum but the peak that shines and sparks memories in the mind of any mountain lover is Hansling.The mountain peak has a very simple and fascinating appearance and does not contain complex structures and framework along its surface.

It takes about 8 kms to reach Khalia top to catch the best glimpse of Hansling from Munsiyari.It can be observed from other areas of Kumaon belt but I feel that Munsiyari is the best place in Kumaon to get the integrated plenary of Hansling.The best season would be December-March to catch the enigmatic appearance of Hansling when its scintillating effulgence intrigues travellers across the world.Hansling is a peak which is visible from the interiors of the Kumaon spectrum and Khalia top Bugyal and the panorama is supreme and imperial as compared to other sights and attractions in any corner of the world.

I was mesmerized to see Hansling shining amongst the other adjoining peaks in the range and was clearly visible and free from elliptic and dark nimbus clouds.There were other mountain guides across the region who explained us the importance of this peak and the history behind its name and appearance.We wandered across the summit for quite some time and rendered good and memorable experiences that I would never forget in my lifetime and I would urge other mountain lovers and travellers to sojourn this corner of the territory in the near future to experience the enigmatic divinity of Pristine Himalayas.

If we look at the spices and flavor of the Nilgiris we can see that it has plenty to offer tourists and travellers across the nation starting from chocolates manufacturing and oil producing and the different varieties of spices.We. get to observe and feel the essence of different varieties of oils like almond,olive,eucalyptus,lemon grass oil, and others to name a few.The tropical and deciduous forests across the entire biosphere reserve makes it very special amongst others and the tea and coffee plantations by the locals also adds grace and magnetism to the habitat.The majority of the area is covered by forests and the ecosystem is well viable and dynamic as compared to other areas of South india which is a good sign and symbol of adequate natural resources in the country.The people depend on tourism for a living and life is not difficult as it looks from outside.
