8:55 PM 13th March 2020 - It's been 20 days since I have returned, and pretty much the town life that I didn't find an apt mood and time to write this one until now.
Finally, here I am today, Thanks to the Coronavirus outbreak that I had to cancel travel plans to my hometown and steal some time finally.
88 km trek, 6D/5N unusual climate, and 1% Hope - that's all I am going to talk about in this blog.
I booked this trek with a small trekking organization as it will be known to a smaller fraction of trekkers. Being a solo traveler, all I wanted to do was trek alone, walk those paths alone and, have that stillness all for myself. Though, it wouldn't have been possible on such group treks.
And, Guess What?
On reaching base camp in Manebhajang, the guide informed me that all the other bookings were either canceled or shifted to other dates, so I was the only one on the trek. Lucky isn't it! Therefore, a solo traveler again.
Except trekking solo means there will be no special porter or help involved on the trek. It was just us, me and my trek guide.
Day 1 - 11km, 6 hours - Tumling
Would it be righteous if I say, Day 1 was pretty easy. Certainly, because it was just the first day, and we had covered only 11/88 km. Consequently, it wasn’t a big deal, for any trek isn’t complete until you are back to the base camp.
