An Amateur's Trek To Sandakphu, The Himalayas
Anyways with the stick in my hand,trekking was a bit easier,and my muscles got accustomed to the steep road soon.we reached Chitrey,the first stop 3 kms from Maneybhanjan by 2pm.Theres nothing but a small ‘chorten’ ( a budhhist tower for worship ) and a tea shop here.I was sweating amidst the cold.So I took off my cardigan and just donned the full sleeve woollen shirt.after a brief break we started to walk again.We aimed to reach Meghma by 4.30-5pm which is around 5kms from Chitrey and were supposed to do the night halt there.But mother nature had other plans.the sky looked gloomy and foggy…Rudra asked me if I had a raincoat…just then it occurred to me that I’v made the biggest blunder…I forgot to carry a raincoat in the Himalayas…anyways hoping luck to be on my side…we proceeded towards Meghma…but in vain…soon it started to rain…we halted midway…I pulled off a plastic cover from my rucksack n covered myself somehow…but it dint help much…n oh my god…it converted into a snowstorm…I got panicky….i was wet n shivering….n hardly anything was visible…the road was hazy too…how shall we walk!!!!...
