I always had this psychological thing in my mind that popular hill stations are not a place to go and relax because these days such places are jam packed with crowd and it's difficult to find solitude and peace over there. One of the biggest reasons I prefer trekking over travelling.
Travelling and staying around Shimla after such a long time made me realise that it's not the locals but it's because of us (people from the cities) such popular hill stations are going off the desired travel destinations list. It's because of us such beautiful places are getting dirty and noisy. The locals keep their town very clean. We, the visitors, who have no right over anything around those hill stations spread pollution like we own the town and can do whatever we feel like. Give it a break, be sensible and responsible. Respect your education and don't think that your individual actions won't make any major difference.
Places like Shimla, Manali, Darjeeling and other popular hill stations are on the verge of losing their charm. Please stop your friends, colleagues and fellow travellers from spreading pollution (in any form). It's now or never. If we can't save our homes, at least we should try not to spoil other's. There's still a lot of beauty left in the mountains. Please don't take them for granted. #ShotonOneplus
