I have been in love with mountains since always! But this was going to be different! Just 2 girls, our excitement at peak, our bags overflowing, our hearts pounding AND our parents worried. We took a Volvo from delhi-ISBT around 8 in the evening. My friend slept all her way but I couldn't sleep! Once on the hills, I couldn't keep my eyes off the scenic beauty! We reached mc'loedgunj around 6 in the morning! Took a cab, booked to a cheap hotel room to freshen up and keep our bags! We got ready for the trek and left our room around 8! And then? Then we spent 2 hours searching for an ATM to transact some money! So if you plan anytime to go to mc'loedgunj, keep some money handy because the ATMs there are usually out of cash! So anyways, we booked a trek guide and tents to stay on the top! You can also book just the tents as the guide is not too required, people travel complete solo as well! So our trek started and we started walking! Being medicos, we prophylactically took monteleukast so we don't run out of breath on the way! Imagine our conditions 2 hours after walking, no, actually not walking, it was climbing the hill! We 2 accustomed to sitting whole day had to walk an inclined path! But somehow we managed to the top in 3 hours! And we reach the top and our bags fell! The bags fell as we stared in awe at the beauty of nature in front of us! Snow clad mountains in front, huge rocks around us, all sorts of people- few singing, few dancing! The peace, the chill! We set up our tent, sat on a rock listening to soulful music, watching the clouds the hills! In the night there was bonfire, and a million stars!
