Jaubari

Rakesh Malik
It took us an hour to reach the Jaubari from Tumling where we had to enter our group’s details at the check-post. At the village, we stopped for some tea and snacks. Started again by 10:40am. After Jaubari, the trail was downhill for about 2 km till Gairibas. The downhill rocky terrain had strained my left toe, or maybe my shoes were just tied loosely.
DAY 0 – REACHING JAUBARIWe reached the base camp at around four in the evening and the breathtaking view from Jaubari was simply smashing! As we set foot on the ground, trying to walk on our wobbly legs, we espied a girl sitting on a patch of grass engrossed in capturing the scenic beauty in her painting. We later learnt that she was Preeta, our fellow trekker, who had already reached the base camp ahead of us from Darjeeling. She had come all the way from US, all by herself for this trek. I couldn’t help admiring her indomitable adventurous spirit.The pretty little inn was to be our halting place for the night. Exhausted to the core though I was, the thought of the faraway hills and mountains that were awaiting me the next day was too exhilarating. I fell into a deep slumber dreaming about them.
