Some suggestions before starting this trip:
1. Should wear full length clothes as there are bushes, thorns all over.
2. Beware of mules as they come suddenly in groups because they are being used for loadings there.
3. Go with moderate speed atleast, so that you can reach there before night.
4. Do not take too much luggage while tracking. Only take one or two pair of cloths and some necessary things so that you can do the tracking easily.
You can put your luggage on shops, by paying 20 RS for a day, before starting the track. Going with less luggage will be a good decision because if you go with all the luggage then you will feel tired soon also you will not be able to enjoy the trek.
We asked locals about the trek, they said that it is a good trek and you guys can easily do it. And that worked as an adrenaline in us and with full enthusiasm we started our next journey. We got some food items packed to eat as possibly it can be difficult to find food there and that would be costly too.
We checked out from our hotel and started our trek at almost 12 a.m. After crossing Kasol bridge our journey started. In the starting it was an straight passage when we were heading towards chala from Kasol. From kasol to chala it is almost 1 km journey. It was like a normal walk which was not a good feel at all because we all were excited about the real track experience, the hurdles, the steepness. So basically we were feeling disappointed.
