The starting day will be called as a Journey day !! We came to village called Janglik which is 150kms from Shimla . Janglik is our base camp ! Here are few pics of our journey
Here I am with the binocular viewing the mighty mountains ..you really need to zoom the pic to see what I was looking at !! The view through the binocular was mesmerizing !!
Oh the snow ????
Yo , the bridge has broken due to land slide... We starting our trekking here only to reach the base camp ????
We started our trekking from here .Group of 18 enthusiastic people from different part of the country have set their mind to trek the himalayas with the organisation called Indiahikes !!
The feeling when you get something hot in the chilling weather ????????
The rhododendrons ????????
Few mates taking the break !!
It's me enjoying each and every part of the trekking..I took the moment to sit and enjoy the mountains :) cannot get out of this !!
Finally we were able to reach the next campsite by noon !!
Dayara is one of the prettiest campsite in India !! I had read about this and wanted to do a painting of this particular campsite prior only since I cannot carry all my stuffs for trekking ..and here was the outcome ...
This day we had move from this campsite to the next campsite...the journey would be shown in the next day...
My constants ????
It's our favorite place , our dining tent ????
View , view everywhere...
My first canvas painting...!! It was supposed to be lush green this time , but it was all white ????
So morning we had to start to next campsite...it was all raining...but we didn't stop...just walk walk and walk and reached our next campsite called Litham !!
Me yeah , covered completely..
This was the first time we saw sun there !!
We slept on snow for 2 days !! ????
So this was our acclimitzation day !! An excursion to chandranahan lake !! Gaining a height of 2000ft made us wonder how steep it would be...and it was really steep at the end .it was almost 80deg and our team made it on time and very well !!
Green with white ????
Chandranahan lake is completely covered by snow !!
We are the team !! At the top of chandranahan lake
This is was the day where we had to move to the next campsite before summit , but weather got really bad and we had decided to head back !! Rainfall , snowfall , hailstorms ...what not...we experienced everything with this trek !!
This was the last day where we headed back to Shimla... An uncompleted trek with a complete story !! :) Trek is not about the summit , trek is a part of summit..:) You trek with your mind , you don't trek wit your feet was the motto from one of my friend !! Cheers !!
