I TOOK UP A BIG TASK THIS TIME TO TAKE A SOLO TRIP ACROSS THE UTTARAKHAND REGION!,THOUGH I HAD DONE FEW TREKS EARLIER,I WAS EAGERLY WAITING FOR MY SNOW TREK!
ON THE FIRST DAY ,REPORTING WAS ATHE DEHRADUN RAILWAY STATION.I WENT ON TO DO THIS TREK THROUGH INDIAHIKES. WE WERE A GROUP OF 20 AND 5 IN EACH CAB,WHERE WE HAD TO REACH OUR BASE CAMP CALLED NAITWAR VIA MUSSORIE WHICH WAS A PIT STOP TO OUR BREAKFAST.THE VIEWS WERE REALLY GOOD THERE.
TO TRAVEL JUST AROUND 180 KMS IT TAKES US TO 10 HRS OF JOURNEY.THOUGH IT WAS A TOUGH TASK TO SIT AT ONE PLACE IT WAS REALLY GOOD.
WE REACHED THE BASE CAMP AROUND 5.30 IN THE EVENING.WE WERE AT A HEIGHT OF 5500 FT.
WE WERE WELCOMED WITH A DRINK AND FEW TIPS WERE GIVEN ABOUT THE TREK AND WE HAD TO RETURN BACK TO OUR ROOMS AS IT WAS FREEZING OUTSIDE.
On the second day we had to wake up at 6.am to have our black tea and breakfast and leave the base camp around 7.00 am
temperature was in minus.
we started our journey through a village and we reached the forest where it was fully covered with trees and bushes
walkking through the path i found the first pearls of snow.i couldnt take my eyes off it ,started playing with for an hour,as it was my first touch of snow
phew! walking up to our first camp ,my eyes were fully covered with just white flakes and trees.we reached the camp as early as possible so we could get good amount of rest.
