Day 2

Day 2: Lohagung-Bekaltal (6 Kms trek)

Rise up early and have a healthy breakfast before you head towards Bekaltal. Avoid eating too much at a time as you need to walk at a stretch. Lohajung to Bekaltal is a 6 kms stretch, which would take around 4-5 hours normally at regular speed. Enroute to Bekaltal, you will come around a waterfall, where you can take a hault and freshen up yourself. Also a lot variety of birds and lizards are encountered while trekking. Don't try to move fast, enjoy your trek and try to reach by afternoon as it may rain during the trek. Rain usually starts in afternoon in mountains and you should keep raincoats and umbrellas handy while travelling. And keep in mind to be hydrated while you trek. Enjoy lunch at serene lake, Bekaltal, which is surrounded by thick oak trees.

You can stay for the night at Bekaltaal in your camps or you can continue your trek for 1 more hour to reach the Bagiyal. Bagiyal is just a lang name. It is at the top with beautiful himalayan peaks view. Climb to Bagiyal is a steep stretch, but trust me it's worth it. Eat well, enjoy with friends or family and again have a great sleep to enjoy further next day.

It's Raining there
