Way to Sankri... Uttarkashi

Himalayan Hikers team picked us from Dehradun Railway Station @6:30 a.m for Sankri.

Sankri, a small village located 200km away from Dehradun. This route passes through Mussoorie, Naugaon, Purola , Mori , Netwar and then our base.

Sankri in Govind Pashu National Park.. This place serves as Base for many Trek.

Reached there by 3 p.m and after having some snacks, we went for evening walk.

The view of pine and oak forest and snow covered mountain is amazing..

Day 4

Due to heavy snowfall, we could not make it....

Though snowfall stopped for half an hour in midnight and we thought we can...we will..

But we did not.. After half an hour again it started

It was time for Sankri.. No stay in Hargaon( 2700mt)..

We started at 7 a.m for Sankri and wore the Panchu and started walking in Snowfall..

Though we couldn’t complete the summit but walking through this full snow covered place was something different...

Midnight ... when snowfall stops for half an hour

Day 5

It was time for Dehradun...

Last two days, all of us were eagerly waiting for JCB...

Finally it’s 2:30 p.m and we can see the JCB was coming to us

Hurrah... Finally we can go back to our normal life..

All of us happy.. but somewhere deep down in my mind I was feeling bad, as the trip was going to end

We started by 4:30 p.m from Sankri and reached Dehradun by midnight..

My journey did not stop there

It was time for another trip in Devbhumi..

Day 5: Sankri Range
