The year 2014 kicked off with a blast! I visited the Himalayas with 7 comrades, a trekking team and a dog (Doga! ).

We all met at Yeshwanthpur on the 22nd of January. Our train was set to leave at 10pm. At 9 45pm, we call Santi to find that he had gone to the wrong station!! We managed to delay the train by 10 minutes and thankfully he arrived!

We arrived at Delhi on the morning of the 24th of Jan. We left all our luggage in the cloak room and headed out to Karol Bagh for lunch. We dined at Nirula and went back to the station to catch our next train to Dehradun at 3pm.

We met the cutest kid, Priyanshi, who became all our friend(Manu maasi, Lakshmi bua) and was most entertaining!

We spent the night at a Hotel in Dehradun. On the morning of the 25th of Jan, Indiahikes sent 2 cars to take us to Sankri, our case camp. After 12 hours of a beautiful drive, we reached Sankri where I played with snow for the first time!

We had a healthy and tasty dinner and were given a pep-talk by our trek leader Raj bhayya. We also met Naina, the cook and Parveen that night.

We repacked our bags that night, while suffering from the cold, and went to bed really uneasy. The next morning I was up and ready by 6 30am. Raj bhayya made us all jog and exercise after which we felt warmer and energised.

We started off soon after breakfast. We drove down to Taluka from where our trek started.

The first day's trek was the most gruelling! We trekked a total distance of 14km!
