I met a German guy, who was creating the GPS route for the treks of India. He was coming from Srinagar to Key via Leh Ladakh. We left the Monastery, sharing our experiences, talking about each other countries and many other topics. After that I told him my plan of crossing the Valley and go to Rangrik Village. He appreciates me for my plan, we left each other on that road, he went to Kaza and I descended into the valley.
The Biggest Adventure.
Descending in the deserted Mountains was far much easier than walking up. After few moments, I found myself in the middle of the valley, alone. It was the first time I was in the middle of the Valley and decided to cross the river. When I put my foot in the stream, it took me less than a second to know that I can`t cross the river. The water of the stream was numbing cold I can keep my foot into it for more than a second. And the another factor was that the fast flow of the stream, if I slip there I would go through the valley in the stream and the result would not be good. I further tried to cross the river for from another location but the result was same.
Now the sun was hide behind the mountains, and surroundings feels like it was evening. My heart was pounding fast, and at that time I was all alone with no food but plenty of water. I made my mind up to ascend the mountain and get back the road which I had left.
Ascending the arid mountains was so difficult, I was totally exhausted because I had walked so much and then climb up to Key Monastery and then this, and had only breakfast and some cups of tea from locals. I started ascending and luckily found a shepherd`s trail which was having a very small inclination. I took that path after some minutes I found it was leading to a huge crevice, I left that path and choose the steep ascend of approximately 50 meters. It was more difficult to climb up deserted mountain because I had done it few hours before to Key Monastery.
