24th Jun 2018
Day 1

We woke up to this bright morning in Mcleodganj chilling in our hostel and time has come ... .

Triund trek - To do or not to do ?

Triund is a cakewalk for tekkers but it can appear to be mission impossible for first timers, latter was the case with my friends who were bit skeptical.

But no excuses worked ???? & we started our trek from Gallu Devi temple . Initially it was tough to trek on a sunny afternoon ,fortunately weather became pleasant after a while.

Soon we got hang of walking in those trails , enjoying scenic views & meeting different kinds (& age) of people.

Some peculiar ones I still remember whom we were trying to avoid (some trouble makers & wierdos) . But we did find a good bunch of guys who stayed around for rest of the trek.

We were not in hurry to reach the top, chilled at various places & finally reached at Triund top at around 4pm.

The sense of achievement to be at the top was exhilarating!! With wide Dauladhar range in front of our eyes...We were spell bounded!! .

The fear in the eyes was replaced by twinkle & silence was replaced by laughter. There was a sudden gush of energy . We couldn’t stop smiling ???????? .We celebrated this ascend with a bunch of other guys.

We camped there for a night paying a nominal rent for a tent with sleeping bags.

With the setting sun & night taking over ,sky was glittering with stars. That night was peaceful & cool breeze(very comforting).I could feel the wind in my hair .

A perfect night for stargazing (reliving our childhood)lying under that twinkling sky.

Next morning , we witnessed a beautiful sunrise just outside our tent & we trekked back to Gallu devi.

We trekked for different reasons - To test our endurance or fight a fear or simply find peace walking in those trials .And we all made it #memories2018 ????
