Day 3

So after spending 2 days in the festival i thought to visit near by places by just roming unknowingly.So, seen one mountain and got on the top of that,seen few river side ways,sunset and the top view of mountain was so amazing and calm.It gave me peace after 2 crowded days.
You can spend easily 4 days or more here,specially those who are interested in horses.
It was a awesome experience,explored something i have not imagined.
    *If you want to plan a trip then firstly visit the website i gaved in the 1st day note,see the dates and programs schedule and the tent availability.

Way's to reach there:
1 by bus - Get the bus for shada and from there you will get local riksha or bus for sarangkheda.
2 by train - Get the train for nandurba and from there get the local bus for sarangkheda.
Expenses:Train/bus ticket depends on you,local fairs will be max 20.Food is cheap there and for stay you can have tent of which ever category you want.Rate of tent are 4500 and 6800 for 2 person.They give discounts upto 50% according to days,so check that online on the link i gave in 1st day.
So if you stay for 2 nights then your expenses will be 9000 for tent + 200 per day for food + 500 extra = 9900.You can have 3 days trip in 10,000.
