Take a road walk on a rainy evening, spend some time in a park staring at the wonders of nature and try exploring nature reserves. Do gardening on your own lawn or a nearby park. It will really be a fun activity if you are doing it as a team. Plan tours to the areas like Kashmir and Gilgit Baltistan to see the magnificent landscapes, beautiful valleys and grandeur mountains.
