Again we started our trip @10 in the morning, after having breakfast at Mirchi Restaurant.
This day we were confused about where to go, as there were less options.
So we decided to explore the beauty of Chamba, specifically, Chamera Lake.
Banikhet to Chamera travel, a two hour drive was serene.
Chamera Lake has boating @Rs 350, 30-45min.
The lake and its view are breath taking.
After two-three hours, we were thinking of what to do thereafter, as we lacked options.
Then we planned for trekking. We had two options, one being the Daikund peak and the other being Kalatop.
Daikund (5km) is relatively difficult trek than Kalatop(3km)
Being unprepared for trekking, and also, unfit we decided kalatop for trek and camping.
My friend was able to get a great bargain for camping at kalatop.
Those who have trekked before, will question me for saying athree Km walk to Kalatop as ‘trekking’ and rightly so.
Note: If a person says you to take short cut with them, unless you have proper trekking essentials, please don’t take it.
We went for the three km ‘trek’ without even renting the trekking shoes. We unfortunately took the ‘short cut’ and it was hell scary!!!
The shoes were slipping like hell.
After much difficulty, we reached the top. The view was so beautiful to be explained in words.
Unfortunately, our phones went off, so could not take many pics.
As the sun was going down, temperature was also decreasing.
As we were unprepared for camping/trekking, our shoes/socks were not sufficient. At one point of time, we could not feel our feet.
Luckily, after the bon fire, we got our feet back!!! Such a relief it was!!!
The people at the top, our helpers, were amazing people. They helped us in every way they could.
Give respect and take respect much more!!!
I had the best rajma chawal i ever ate in my life, at the top.
The tents were warm, so we could easily spend our night inside tents.( outside temperature was -4)
My first camping, a memorable one indeed!!!!!
