We had our breakfast at the hotel packed our rucksack and started towards our meeting point i.e Manali adventure camp. We met our trek lead Mahesh Kashyap, finished all our formalities and we were ready for the trek. Later on, we had a Briefing session about the trek regarding clothing, food and behaviour. Later we were asked to introduce ourselves to the group. I keenly listened to everyone and got to know that we had Doctor, Lawyer, Retired defence person, Scientist, S&C coach, Software engineers, Data scientist, Chartered Accounts, Research students in our group. People from too many different backgrounds I would say. Once the briefing session was over we had our lunch at the same place and waited for our cabs to arrive. Before we started our trek we took a group photograph and then we boarded our cabs. On our way, I saw Manali town getting smaller and smaller that's because the ascend was very steep. We boarded our cab from Manali which is around 6700 feet and the cab dropped us at Jobra valley which is at an altitude around 9800 feet. We had a small briefing session about using the trekking pole and we were good to go.
