Dimapur - Zakhama
It all started with a phone call from an aquintance saying ,"Dimapur aaraha Hun mil Lena" and right after three days I met him but only to accompany him to Dzukuo valley.
There were group of 6 people from various parts of Assam waiting at the Dimapur railway station. I was the only one who joined from Dimapur.
We took a bus ride to Kohima which was approximately 3.5 hours journey with scenic beauty on either side of the road.
After we reached Kohima, we took a quick grab of our snacks and left for Zakhama.
It took us half an hour to reach our trek point (as it was my first trek, the only thing I could do at that moment was 'Panic')
By 2pm we started our trek through the lush green mountains.The only thing our trek leader adviced was to take 20 steps at a time and relax for 20 seconds.
Slowly we made our way through various waterfalls and streams. We stepped
On the rocks and jumped over fallen trees that blocked our way (It was one hell of an experience)
By 7:30pm we were at Dzukou's rest house all exhausted and excited.
After spending couple of hours enjoying the campfire and bonding with all the travellers who were already present there, everyone went to their tents.
