and we decided to check out because we dont want to miss Sunrise from Chandrashila Peak.
My friend knows my luck and even I, but who knows it will hit us that hard in between the trip.
We started our journey in morning and i was feeling little bit sleepy but there is no second option, we started driving and i was feeling very cold, after few kms in middle of the forest range everyone was sleepy and not foucsing too much then i saw a leopard on the road, his eyes were shining because of the headlight but none of my friends noticed but i did. I got excited and started shouting then my friends also gets when they knew what they missed. But we didn't stopped and keep going, then after 20-30 kms from srinagar when we stopped our bike to ask any local about the way then i noticed i dont have my mobile phone with me, first i thought it was with my friend but when i asked i got dissappointed and there is no network that we can try calling and still sun not rised, it was very dark and i was into my phone so much, that i dont wanted to lost it like that, but i didn't lose hope I taken a UTurn with Udit and gone back where i saw the leopard because i thought maybe there it was fallen but i unable to locate it.
I was crying inside, and then Piyush motivates me by saying ki "ye toh tha hi bekar ab naya lena", obviously i abused him after that, but then the sun got rised and we also not able to make it to the peak to see sunrise, but we have to keep going, and also our bike was very poor, it even dont have light switch, we got to know that on yesterday night when we had to switch on the light, good part i was carrying swiss knife, with which i opened the light switch and temporarily fixed it.
Coming to this day, we faced lots of problems, major one is that we unable to locate right direction and taken very much wrong ones. But after we saw himalayas, we got motivated to move and did it before 2PM. Then how can we miss the trek, we did that after this long journey with sleepy eyes, and with my sad heart. But our excitement was at peak.. We didn't choosed trek path we did it by jumping in hills and cutting the hills, and made to the top in few hours, it was very lengthy trek after being too tired and we did it with very ease, there we discovered the highest shiva temple of world, actually i was not into gods so i stayed outside the temple and enjoyed the view, we clicked few pictures, i also did with my friends phone😢. But i was really sad and thinking about it all the time, also we were very thirsty and don't have water so we filled the snow into the bottle and eated that, after we successfully made it to base then had some food there.
Our plan was to go to deaoriatal for camping and do stargazing, only thing i really excited to witness in whole trip. But who knows fate, we started driving to deoriatal at night but at middle of jungle my bike petrol gets over, there was nothing, no houses, no hotels, no petrol pumps nothing, just the good part is the path is slopy so we goes neutral at that night, we saw a hotel after driving 20-30 kms and don't have any option other then to stop there. There i told my parents that i lost my phone, i talked to my best friend also and told her about what happened today. After having dinner we asked hotel manager about nearby petrol pump, but sadly there is no petrol pump nearby but there is a shop in a nearby city which offers petrol in black, so we decided to go there and take some petrol in a bottle so I and Vaibhav take the bike which has petrol and goes for the hunt, but after going 10 kms that bike also get stopped because of petrol, my luck!.
I thought we can go neutral but headlights didn't started with battery, so it means no headlights in middle of the jungle, i have no phone, vaibhav had but there is no network, poor guys! We saw a wagnor coming and asked for help and they did what we said, they gave us their torch which vaibhav holded from back amd showing me the way and i was pushing bike from my legs as we were going neutral, but there comes a problem after a point there is a upward slope which we can't go neutral, but the wagnor guy came to support and he took vaibhav with him to the city which was more then 10 kms from where i waiting, it was jungle and i dont have my phone, but i am not afraid of the jungle, i am sad about my trip and about my luck too, then after waiting about an hour vaibhav came back and said the shop was closed he called him from his shop board and asked him to help him, that shop guy came to his shop and gave us petrol, and then we went to our hotel and told others what happened with us! What? blame is on my *kismat* 😂. I sleep so hard that day, but again we have to check out earlier, as we have to return our bikes before 1 PM. But fun wasn't over, next day was more funny, seriously! See..
