After crossing the dam, take right. And start walking. In another 2 kms, you will come across a few shops (selling tea). Ask them for directions towards Waichin valley.
Now there are a few ways to get to Waichin valley (which I got to know after I had reached Waichin).
There are 3 routes that I know of. We had crossed the first one, so it made no sense to go back there and try to take that route.
We were at a crossroads. Go right and take the route which would take 2-3 hours to get to the top. Or climb the mountain, and be there is 30 mins.
If you would know me, I love saving time. And climbing mountains. But this was something I wasn't prepared for.
We started climbing the mountain. It got STEEP! After a point, I was catching my breath, and climbing again, with all 4 limbs. We had to use our hands to climb, it was SO STEEP!
With constant efforts, we reached the top. And it was BEAUTIFUL!
There was NO ONE around us. We were the only travellers in the entire valley. We got the tent which was for 6 people (but paid only for 2 people).
