“The first question which you will ask and which I must try to answer is this, "What is the use of climbing Mount Everest?"...

Three nights at three different places, Maneybhanjan, Tonglu and at last Sandakphu. From childhood when I used to travel and see any rising of land above plain it made me exciting and would shout "look hills...". And this time the dream was finally accomplished going to land of Himalayas. The trail started from Maneybhanjan a beautiful starting point to Singalia National Park. Singalia National Park is famous for the endangered red panda. It has kept the himalayan beauty of eastern India and will make you return again again in every season.
Though the trek wasn’t technical, there were long treks with many ascends and steep descends, and covering 82 km trek in mountains is definately not easy on your knees. Even though the trail was difficult, but its worth; especially when you have the mighty Kanchedzonga looking over you the entire way.The descends were steep down for two days, but the Antakshari sessions and chatting on all kinds of random topics with my fellow trekkers made it easier. On the last day of trek as the road was in sight, the talks shifted from nature to the civilian life- about TV series and movies.One of the best things that travel leaves you with is the people you meet. Saying goodbyes become difficult, especially when you meet like minded set of crazies. I definitely made some lifetime friends!
