What do you do when all of the three friends who you plan a trek with, ditch you for that long weekend plan? Cancelling is not on my list of options and although I travel solo often, this once I didn’t want to go alone, being a totally inexperienced trekker. So I called up my brother who was at work and asked him to accompany me. After I got to get his confirmation by agreeing to sponsor his trip (Despite the fact that he earns and I don’t), I got myself company who I brilliantly made use of as a personal photographer and the one to deal with the tantrums. So we booked our tickets for the next day, packed our stuff in school bagpacks (Due to lack of a rucksack and the always available option of *jugaad*), charged the battery of the camera and were all set for this adventure.
