got up early in the morning as we had to go to the base camp, from today our trekking starts officially. As we were lucky in day we are able to feel the snow fall in the place where we stayed. We left leh at around 10:00 Am in tempo traveler. The roads were so clean and well maintained by our army. On the way we saw the sangam (meeting place of rivers) of rivers – Indus and Zanskar. As we were going to walk on the one of this river i.,e Zanskar river, the sangam is also frozen and on the way we saw the magnetic hill too. We reached the camp site after 2- 3 hrs of road trip, the last 30 minute of journey was very bad because the roads were not made properly. We all started to move towards the river which has frozen ( chadar). The first step on zanskar was thrilling, it is a first time experience for me to walking on a frozen river. The ice is slippery, it is difficult to walk on the ice. As the guide told earlier only to walk like penguin i.,e little flexion of knee, slightly forward bending and small small step without lifting the foot much. As it is new to us few slipped and fell on the ice. We continued our journey on frozen river, which was surrounded both sides by mountains, no sun light, we are able to see the flowing water below the formed ice at places and also beside the formed ice. The one which look like glass is well formed chadar it is safe to walk on them. At places the chadar was not formed well in this case we used to take mountain path, this is very dangerous, one wrong step we will fall directly into water, one foot can be put at a time so narrow path. After 3hrs of the walk, few of them fell down. The great news,I managed not a single fall. We reached the first camp site Somo paldar, where the porters made the tents and were preparing snacks and tea for us, all of us went inside the respective tents. One lady had fractured her arm due to fall and one more girl had breathing problem, in first camp site they went to doctors who had first aid and later they were sent back with the fellow trekker and porter to base camp site from there they went to leh. Later we had small chat about the incident, few were thinking to go back as the following journey is too hard and few were telling not to worry will complete our trek I was in in the second group. With this mood each of us went to ours tents to sleep. In night we were provided with double sleeping bag although I was feeling cold, temperature went down to -20c .
