Bad luck

After so far away from my travel, I was able make time after 6th dec to explore auli.. On 25th Jan I strongly feel that I should keep going no matters either I have winter clothes or shoes.. My only target was to be at auli by 27th morning... So I left to purani Delhi railway station from sikanderpur and unfortunately I missed the last train...

Day 2

The only message to reach joshimath

Unlikely the tragedy took place at haridwar as I miss last joshimath bus in early morning 5.30 a.m and I was about there by 5.40 a.m.. With no luck I had to reach rishikesh.. I reached rishikesh with local TT van... The only message I wanna give you people is be on time whenever you want to go across Uttarakhand high mountain.. My destination target came closer when I took karnprayag bus from rishikesh.. And then it was full of valleys, hilly roads, bumpy dumpy jerks.. My inner soul was so happily singing dil garden garden hogaya.. The stretch was calm, beautiful and was bonded with rivers, fresh air.. I reached karnprayag,karnprayag to chamoli cab and the last was chamoli to joshimath.. In 700rs from Delhi I reached to joshimath.. As I accomplished my destination the weather was bone chilling and I couldn't had control over coffees.. I accomodated at snow crest Hotel which was very near to rope way as well as snow..

Day 3

Ropeway from 8000ft to 10000ft.

The most imperative thing before Early morning fresh up, breakfast and all is to Standing in the queue for ropeway or cable car ticket.. The early you stand in the line there are more chances of getting tickets. After 2hrs of wait finally i got tickets.. Rest of the moments were amazwing, thrilling and dazzled with the beauty of snowfall.. I felt like fingers going numb, toes were like don't step don't step..
