Himalayan Playlist, Music for Treks

The Best Music to be enjoyed in the Nature is the Nature itself. Nothing is more soothing than the Nature Godess. I repeat Nothing.

Music powered by Millions of years of evolution

The free bird – singing

Wind – whistling

Leaves -rustling

Water – humming

Listen to the – weather

Hear the snake – slither

Ruffles the bird’s – feather

Cruising at 16,000 ft

Listen to my happy feet

or my heart beat

There is no network, still there is a tweet

Let me get lost

In my own thoughts

They are just so deep

make the ocean feel so shallow

Welcome to the natures concert

You got the lucky seat

All you had to do was climb 20,000 ft


Time to get back with the topic

The best thing you can do is listen to your own thoughts in the background of millions of Natural instruments playing in unison. Mind you the peace of nature has a way to dig the most profound & deep thoughts.

But once you are through all the thoughts and need some extra trickles of music to the peaceful trek, here are some songs you can give an ear to :
