Mountains or Sea?

For a long time I thought I liked both the mountains and sea equally. Then came an opportunity when I could have gone to either and I picked up the mountains. After the Everest Base Camp Trek there was no doubt, I am much more of a mountain person than sea.

Sunset

Sunset at Deoriatal, Uttarakhand

This not the classic Deoriatal sunset. I got away from the lake as it was grey the day I was there. In the opposite direction there was still some color in the sky. I have to go back to Deoriatal one day to see that classic view.

Kerala

Sunset at Fort Kochi, Kerala

On the other hand a vacation by the sea means walking by the shore gently and not trekking furiously! I like some of my holidays to be more even paced. So I still love the sea. What about you? Which one do you prefer the mountains or sea?

PS. This post is part of Skywatch Friday. Do check it out.

Beautiful pics, Mridula! i still do love the mountains and the sea equally, but then, I am not going to go trekking in the mountains anyway! as long as it simply involves a bit of walking and then sitting down to watch the sight, any sight is fine by me :D

I like both although I grew up by the seaside and lived on a small Caribbean Island, tall volcano surrounded by the sea. I now live in the mountainous bask-country of Nice on the French Riviera and I overlook the Mediterranean Sea … I am bond to like both ! And… I like both your pictures but still prefer the first one … makes me think of infinity !

Namaki both the places sound so exotic and I haven’t visited any of them!

Shilpi I too think like that. I love mountains a little more but sea is beautiful too.

Pallavi November 29, 2013 at 10:26 pm

I loved both the pictures equally. For me, I would have to say mountains . Since I live in Singapore near the ocean, I crave for the mountains. There is something mystical about having a hot cup of coffee , wrapped up in woolens, breathing the fresh air and watching an awe inspiring sunset in the hills :)
