We started with the night journey on 12th Sep, 2017 and boarded the bus from ISBT, Kashmere gate, New Delhi to Rishikesh, Uttarakhand at around 9:00 P.M. For others Train from NDLS to Haridwar is an alternate option which we didn’t choose. The journey of 5 to 6 hours to Rishikesh tickled every nerve, filling our mind and soul with excitement with each passing minute taking us near to nature’s lap. After reaching Rishikesh, we took the bus to Govindghat, a small town at a distance of 300 km in Chamoli district, Uttarakhand, India that was our first stopping point to start trekking. For the convenience of passionate trekkers like us, both local government bus (costing around 480 bucks) or private cabs (though expensive costs 14000 bucks both way) are available that takes around 10-11 hours to cover 300 km stretch of mountainous terrain. Due to tight pockets, we opted for government buses and reached Govindghat on 13th September, 2017 around 4:00 PM. A decent hotel with panoramic view (Hotel Bhagat) was already booked that facilitated hassle free stay. Pre booking and hot water facility were the prime things kept in mind to start trekking next day.
