Hitesh Harisinghani/ took his first trip of 2020 and visited McLeod Ganj. 

"As we're learning to live with coronavirus, I decided to take a short trip to the beautiful town of McLeodganj in Himachal Pradesh," he says.

"Mountains have always attracted me since I was a kid. The prime reason being the cold weather which we don't experience in Mumbai."

"My journey was a bit stressful as I had to take all necessary precautions due to COVID-19, but once I got there, I was one with nature."
