We had booked a 4 day/3 night snow trek in advance. (19th to 22nd February)
We reached base camp around 10:00am which is at 2000-meter above the city Naggar, Himachal Pradesh. We had our lunch by 1:00PM and left for an acclamation trek, came back to our base camp around 4:30. We then gathered at the camp and had ice breaking games and fun sessions.
Oh the base camp, People use ‘Heaven’ as a metaphor to express how beautiful a place could be, but I would rather say if one wants to go to heaven it has to be the base camp.
Given a chance I would stayed there forever. Imagine nesting at a height of 2000 meter with majestic mountain views outside your rooms, mesmerizing isn’t it??
The mountains are covered with snow, standing tall making you feel “How small you and your worldly problems are” and makes you realize there is true happiness beyond it. A beautiful view which cannot be expressed in words, it is for everyone to go up there and experience it.
Just imagine, as the day passes by you are delighted by nature with its different shades of color blending in perfectly carrying you away in its beauty.
Every morning we woke up fresh as ever. One day we were woken up by heavy rainfall where as one day with snowfall. Imagine witnessing your 1st ever snowfall at the base camp. We got fresh had our breakfast and left for waterfall trek. We came back had our lunch and then left for exploring the Naggar City and not by road but by trekking down the steep mountain and that to in rain. It’s a fun in itself, down the trek one is slipping here and one there and while you are laughing at them out of nowhere you slip down too.
We visited the Nicholas Roerich museum and the Naggar castle at Nagar city. We had the best coffee and Maggie there.
