It was an easy trek I'll say. Temp was low. And by saying low I mean -5°c but its ok after all you came here in February only for this. A true winter trek.
Next day we decided to go to Bekaltal lake. Now this lake like all secred Himalayan lakes has an obvious story and that goes something like this,
" There was a farmer with some goats who reached this lake by accident and decides to take a bath and as he did so a giant snake came out the lake and told him that he can have all he wants at that very moment only if he goes back to home from here onwards and will not turn around while walking. The term was to keep its location a secret. But unfortunately he turned around and saw something so unexplainable that he ran away and when he returned home he died before telling anything to any one.
They say its BekalNag who resides there and people worship him as BekalNath. "
It was jungle cum snowy trail. All the shadows made a mysterious surrounding all the way. After 3.5hr hike we reached BekalTal lake. It was thick ice over the lake gurnished with snow flakes. So serene and silent that time even stops there.
We stayed ther for 2hrs and came back to lohajung that day.
