"Travel in groups and explore what's around,
Travel solo and explore what's within"
With such an attitude, I started a journey to the first solo trek of my life.
I booked a volvo, from Kashmiri gate till dharamshala on 17th May at 11:00pm. The journey was just okay and I reached dharamshala at 11:00 am the next day, after which I boarded a local bus to Mcleodganj which was filled to another level.
After doing all the morning corus, I went to try some local stuff and then had amazing breakfast at Mc'llo Cafe.
Just before all this, I had booked my camp at Triund top and I got a pretty good deal there.
I met another solo traveller who I became friends with, and then I started my trek to "TRIUND".
Now the twist was, that a day before, some people got lost during the trek and so today there were some police officer who stood there at the checkpoint to ensure that people dont pass that point after a certain time(3:00pm) .
So, I had to board a taxi till the checkpoint to reach at the earliest.
The journey was tiering and very exhausting and I reached the triund top at 6:30pm.
Nature is truly amazing and unpredictable. We faced heavy rain, scorching heat, uneven mountains, gentle breeze and then finally the most beautiful view at the top.
We reached just in time to see the marvelous sunset and the clouds turning blue and black at the same time. After clicking tons of pictures, we got inside our tent which was totally covered yet very cold. We had dinner, played some music, enjoyed the darkness in the dim light of the moon and then dozed off.
