I started to eat snow a little bit while walking. I started drawing and clicking photos up there.
So we continued our journey and started waling until we came to spot where the two road one to the SHIVLING and the other one we call PATRI RASTA specially made for horses to carry goods.
So we dedcided to choose the PATRI RASTA.
We didn’t knew about the amount of snow on our way and also the path was not travelled by anyone. We were the first to travel on that path.
So at around 1 pm in the afternoon we started to travel on Patri rasta. My cousin was leading and i was behind him. Sun was above us and the amout of snow was about 1-2 foot initally.
We didn’t faced any problem and we were filled with joy.
So on our way we found some sticks and we decided to keep it with us in case of deep pit covered with snow.
So as we travelled snow level became to rise.
It reached till our waist aprroximately 4 and a half foot.
This path had many elevations which was covered in snow.
Nor we could se the sun over there.
Our feet started to get cold and the temperature was -10C.
I started to loose hope that I can’t reach the top I shouldn’t have come. My shoes were jammed too and my lower was also freezed. While climbing the elevation as much as I tried to go up the more I was pulled down. My legs started to gave up.
To be honest i never experienced something like this before and my whole life flashed in front of my eyes. The people i loved i cared and god i was over thinking.
But I don’t know how I regained my courage and in my heart I prayed to lord shiva.
I mustered all my courage and I reached up to the temple.
I wad not able to walk properly I just wanted to sleep.
My shoes were jammed, I couldn’t feel my feet my ankle was also hurt because of hardening of lower due to snow.
We reached the temple and asked the saint to pour some normal water on our shoes so that we can open them. Then we removed our lower that were wet and warmed ourself up in front of BUKHARI.
It took us 4 hours to cover that patch. So we decided to stay there and travel to shivling early in the morning. Temperature at night fell to -15c.
I was very tired so I slept and woke up at 6 am.
At morning our shoes were jammed.
We poured some water on it and wore them up. It chilled our body.
We travelled up to the shivling. The snow due to the sun rays was tightened and was slippery. We just climbed up the way like a caterpillar. We kept our foot in the foot steps made before or otherwise we would have fall.
And then when we reaced the top and nothing was more satisfying then that. The view from the top that we got we couldn’t get that view in any season except the winters.
