We started 3 days expedition to explore hidden solitaire and survival secrets of Salli.
Started our day early morning with a challenge as everyone had to bear with the cold water for perking up and queue to get warm water for bathing.
Later provided with utensils and instructed to bring them daily while coming for a meal. You might be thinking what's the big deal, right? They asked us to wash by our own ironically this was the first time I washed a dish.
The main aim of the day is to explore handi forest. So we headed towards our another camp which was 7km away from the base camp. Packed our rucksack bearing in mind utmost necessities that too provided by the camp head. All set, we 32 with 3 faculties and a tour manager ready to leave the camp for a day.
While moving inside the forest we came across many amphibians and elergic trees. Nothing makes me feel as fresh and good as the silent scream of birds happiness, animals craving for food and trees shedding their leaves for rain. Escape to forests of Salli and experience the hidden facts.
Sprinting through the wilderness of the forest in a search of secret human survival was the only positive distraction from city hustle bustle.
The tour guide was showing us the direction to move and my group (THE S4 ) was leading the crew and was the first to reach the camp 2.
Welcomed by the Himachali people with beverage as their sweet gesture. After such a hectic walk, we all sat for a minute and another instruction came to build our own tent. They taught us how to assemble and make a tent. Afterward, we all freshened up and ready for the lunch.
We stepped for the river crossing activity. Enhancing yourself through nature is all you want.
The only time the whole 32 sat and activity was across the river named "Khauli", a crystal clear river.
At the end of the activity, the weather became so stormy and rainy that we moved in a single tent and played indoor games. The thunderstorm and rain at such height were so threatening but we managed to enjoy as for us was the new experience. After the busy schedule, we all went into our tents after dinner. In dinner, we are served with a regional vegetable named "lumdu", a famous veggie of Himachal.
And keep in mind the cold weather bonfire was arranged.
