About Sikkim

Date : 22.10.2016Woke up at the base camp in yuksom at 8 am .. got ready , had breakfast and started the trek at 9:00... today it was a 5km trek. A small trek . I was thrilled,excited and happy since this was my first trek ever. We entered dense forest of  kanchenzodanga national park and crossed three waterfalls and experienced awesome views on the way and I got to know a lot about my fellow trekkers... they were really good people. Reached the campsite called SACHEN by 14:00. Had packed lunch and by 16:00 India hikes served us snacks. Bhel was in snacks. Now we all talked to each other and got to know each other. Everyone was cool. IH set up the tents. I was stuck with saurabh. Meh!! But he was a really awesome guy after all.. The views were amazing from the camp site . Now it's dark. Time for dinner.. Everybody had dinner, had a good talk and a good laugh. Went to sleep at 20:30.
