Sepi Gaon

DAY 6 – REACHING SEPIToday was the last day of our trek and we went to Sepi from Gorkhey and then it was back to Samandan and from there the entire stretch was both uphill and downhill with gushing streams giving us company. Three hours later, we reached the checkpoint. From there, it was pretty much downhill all the way and we were back to civilisation.As we sat down for our lunch, I realized that the time had come for us to go our different ways. I marveled at the way the adverse conditions had made us bond with rank strangers, helping each other and looking out for each other’s safety. I would certainly miss the lot of them. After lunch and exchanging pleasantries with our fellow campers and bidding them goodbye, we finally left for the railway station.I realized with a sinking heart that I now had to go back to the concrete jungle that Bengaluru has now become and back to mundane existence once again. I console myself that all good things have to come to an end. Au revoir dear mountains!

Day 7: Back to Civilization; To SepiHonestly, I don’t want to leave Gorkhey. It was too pretty a village. And frankly, a lot of locals were bemused thinking I was a Nepali due to our similar attributes in terms of looks. Today we walk for another 15 kms. My knees couldn’t curse me more. The initial half of the trek will be through a dense canopy, followed by small villages once we cross Rammam.
