You remember we featured this luxe hotel - Suryagarh, located at the outskirts of Jaisalmer sometime back? If you do, then we promised that we will also be featuring some of the most interesting and mysterious places that we visited during our leisure trip...
So, here we are with our second in the same Travel series! This feature is all about the mysterious trails that we explored, at the weird timings of day and night both... and, of course some beautiful, magical monsoon trails as well that we followed during our haunted journey. Dr. Supriya Himanshu, who went on this trip will be sharing her first-hand experience in the paragraphs to be followed, down below.
|The Abandoned, Cursed & Haunted Kuldhara/ KhabaVillage... Near Jaisalmer!!|
We don't know much about these facts, but were told by our guide from Suryagarh Hotel, when we decided to visit the super-cursed Kuldhara Village at 1.30 in mid-night that the house of the village head, which still is in the same deserted shape, has the spirit of his daughter who he killed, just to save the villagers.
A night that I won't forget the rest of my life! We were 9 'She' writers, who were on this 'Chudail Trail' (Witch trail) at the spookiest time of the night, exploring the haunted mystery. No street lights, no sounds, no humans... just the guide, and we women. Are you thinking that we found the witches there? Of course not, but it was thrill. It was more about seeing a deserted village, and wondering what actually went wrong here. The most surprising thing about both the villages is that they are totally abandoned, which means nobody either tried to build new houses on the remains, nor even decided to settle nearby. Quite a scary night that was...
