It takes a lot of effort to win a Tripoto contest; sleepless nights, a full month of spirited writing, keeping the competitive spirit in you, penning down things when the ideas of how to approach your blogs comes to your mind, mind blocks- hours of just staring at your screen and writing absolutely nothing down, hard work so to say. Even after all this you may not win, I re frame you would be lucky to win.
I was lucky enough when I won an all expenses paid trip to Kuari Pass for being the 2nd topper in the leader-board list for the most credits achieved in the month of June.
I had booked my trek almost five and a half months before I was going on the trek.(24-29 December) It was a long wait that I had to go through and excitement increased with each passing day.
A routine was set up by Indiahikes one and a half months before the trek that we had to follow
It was not all smooth sailing to the trek day there were reports of cancellation of Har-ki-Dun trek for the season. It was followed by more bad news stating that the recent batch to Kuari Pass had their trek cancelled due to an unexpected snow storm. It was a roller coaster ride of emotions and the trek had not even started. Fingers crossed the weather cleared and the trek was a go-go for now.
