Dear Traveler,Pack light. It will be a long trek. Memorize this war cry "Oooo aai Oooo aai" and march along amidst the bamboo forests.Pack some warm clothes. Pack a raincoat. Carry some protein bars. Carry at least two packets of Maggi. Food and water is scarce here but scenic view is abundant.Hold on. Yes, I will tell you the entire story.From Jakhama village, we reached to a point where cars drop travelers. We were 16 travelers from different parts of the country. We started our 1 km long climb on the steep rocky mountain at around 8.45 am. There were some new trekkers and some seasoned ones. Even though we camped together a night earlier at Jakhama village, we hardly knew each other. And trekking gives that opportunity to bring people of different cultures together like no other activity. Along the way we got acquainted with each other, shared our stories and some glucose tablets.
