After the release of her last film, Nil Battey Sannata, Swara Bhaskar didn’t find the time to take a break. She had to complete the dubbing for her next. Now, before she starts shooting for her upcoming film, which co-stars Sonam Kapoor, she took off for a solo trek in Himachal Pradesh. In the past, too, the actor has taken solo trips. She has travelled to Turkey, Syria and Palestine.
Swara says, “I needed a break, so I decided to trek in the Dhauladhar range of mountains in Himachal Pradesh.” She trekked for a week and reached the snow-covered Buran Pass at 15,000 feet in Buran Ghati. Later, she crossed the pass by rappelling in the snow and ended her trip in Kinnaur valley.
A source says, “Swara wanted some alone time. She signed up for the eight-day trek with a trekking community. She didn’t know anyone in the 21-member trekking group when she joined.”
The actor says that although trekking was “super difficult and challenging”, the experience was great. “It gave me a lot of perspective. Physically, it was challenging. I made some great friends too. Rapelling in the snow was memorable, but the scariest part was getting lost in the rain and mist at an altitude of 13,500 feet,” she adds.
