Day 1

It was the day when we left for our trip to Manali.
It was a trekking adventure in the mountains of manali, himachal pradesh
We had our train at 10:53 pm from borivali to ahemdabad and we are going to meet our batchmates at ahmedabad the next day
We were a group of 6 people and soon we boarded our train ..... 🚂🚂🚂

Day 2

We reached ahmedabad by 6:30 am and took a small room to freshen up as we had our next train to pathnakot (punjab) at 11:20 am from ahmedabad.

We reached station by 10:45 am and collected our tickets from our group leader and boarded
Luckly our tickets got confirm at the time of chart preparation and we got a compartment of 6

Thats where the journey starts .......
Singing songs, Playing cards, Gosspis, Fun is a usual part of a trip
It was a 27 hour train journey which went down smoothly

Day 3

At 3:30 pm next day, we reached pathankot and instantly took a room to relax as we had to catch our bus for manali at 7:30 pm in the evening
We heard about the famous "Billa Lassi Centre" here
So we decided to have a glass of lassi
Soon we left for our bus and loaded our luggage and had our seats
Earphones + Old Bollywood Songs + Mountains is the best combination during travels

Day 4

Mext day by morning 8:00 am we reached our base camp and we had a small patch of 1 km to walk in order to reach the base camp
The view from the base camp was mesmerizing
We had our first fall in at 9:00 am and we were allotted the tents
No 8. Was the tent allotted to us

Soon after getting fresh and having breakfast, we had a forest walk for acclimatization and the instructor introduce us to the route amd precautions to be taken while trekking

After lunch at 3:30 pm,  we were asked to go for a stream walk
The water was quite chilled but was a fun and challenging task 💙

After this we went back to camp site, took our dinner by 7:30 pm and were ask to pack our rucksack for the next day trek

Day 5

Next day morning by 7:00 am we took our breakfast and had our lunch packed for the trek and left the campsite by 7:30 am
The route to gulaba (where the trek starts) was 2 hr long and we were provided car to reach there

We reached there by 9:15 am and soon started trekking
It took us 2 hours to reach our first break site and our instructor said that we complete 30% of our trekking for the day

After a good 15 min break we started walking again
But one of the person from the group had to ues washroom (which was obviously not available in mountains) so he had to go in forest for the same
(PS : In case of emergency don't think much about people, instead think about yourself and go for it)

So we were behind our whole group but soon coped up
As we climbed high, the oxygen level kept decreasing
At a point we had to crossed a waterfall (toughest part of the journey) which had water which felt ice and a single mistake can cost you life
But somehow we crossed it
By 7:15 pm in evening we reached the advance campsite
The view was beautiful as the camp was surrounded by snow capped mountains and river flowing by

Soon after the fall im session we were provided with soup and food and were  instructed not to roam outisde at night

Day 6

Next day as we were not totally fit 5 out of 6 people dropped the plan to climb further to brighu mountain
1 person climbed the whole summit from our group
Meanwhile as we were at campsite
We saw a person from far mountain asking for help to get down
So we helped him get down by showing him directions

By 5:30 pm in the evening the whole batch who climbed the mountain camp back to advance camp safely and after dinner we had a great sleep (though the temp went -6℃ by midnight)

Day 7

Next day morning by 8:00 am we had our breakfast
And left for the desend
It was also tough to get down the whole mountain as the toes start hurting after a while
But by 2:30 pm we were back to gulaba
After that we took a car and went for river rafting
The day came to an end , also our trip came to an end 💙
