Day 1 required us to show up at Kathgodam railway station at 6:00 am from where our bus left for Lohajung. It was a 14 hour bus ride at the end of which, we were all shivering because the temperature at Lohajung was -1 degree. A briefing was held by our trek leader and we were allotted rooms and dozed off right after dinner.
Lohajung is a small village providing bare necessities to the coming trekkers. If you are lucky, it can also provide you with the best quality of raw honey, rajma and soyabean. So when you go there, ensure to stock up.
