Last day of trek was little exciting as we got some local prasad from our guide. Greediness for the prasad, made us move faster and we trekked for almost 18 kms in 5-6 hours that too in heavy rainfall. After reaching the base camp (Wan) we all dried up and had lunch. For almost one full day we remained grounded in a house because of rainfall and enjoyed the warmth hospitality of localites. Next day morning, we packed up our luggage and started towards kathgodam with heavy hearts. In fact, our luggage seemed little lighter than our hearts. On a very friendly note we ended our wonderful journey and started uploading some memories on social media which reminded us of same world we came from. Perhaps, mountains were laughing on us for this but we were as we were.
There are lots of trek in India but Roopkund has special place in the heart of every trekker. It is also known as mysterious lake or valley of flowers.I, myself like to travel a lot and mostly adventurous places. In may’17, I went to Roopkund Trek with a group of Pune. It was a week long trek but seemed like I lived years while I was there and some part of me belong there. Off course, I wanted to stay there but that was only possible in my thoughts. Here, I am giving a brief about my trekking experience which isn’t the same as going there but still you can live few moments with me.So, this wonderful journey started from Kathgodam which is the highest railway station in the kumaon region. All the famous hill station such as nainital, ranikhet, almora are nearby. After one day stay at kathgodam, I left for the Wan village (Lohajung) which is the base camp for roopkund trek. Wan is very beautiful village as much as people there. They were very sweet and humble. Their hospitality left us awestruck as it was beyond 5-star hotel experience. Far away from the tusslings of the noisy city, It was altogether a different experience for me. Surrounded by high mountains, it was like I am in the middle of a large bowl and tasty dish is yet to be poured into it. During my one day stay there, I played with the kids, clicked some selfies with them and started my further journey with lots of memories.
On the last day, we boarded our bus with a gallery full of photos and a heart full of memories. We reached Kathgodam by 9 pm and headed home. A special appreciation for khajjan bhaiya on this trek. He was empathetic to the needs of first time trekkers and held their hand through and through. Anyone, wanting to go on a trek with their group can contact him. Just drop me a message and I'll connect you to him.
The bus ride was great but I couldn't sleep because of my excitement. Next morning around early 5:30 we were at Kathgodam in a small jeep to go to Nainital city. We had booked beds in the Youth Hostel which got promoted to a big ass room because of less check-ins in the covid times. It is the cheapest place to live in if you are planning to visit Nainital but don't eat there food is not that good.
