Our first stop was Srinagar Garhwal, the midway of our entire journey where, we had our breakfast while having a view of river Alaknanda in a roadside restaurant then, got back to the car and started our journey ahead.
From Rudraprayag, we took the Kedarnath highway for the rest of the 70kms, the road in the middle was in a pretty bad condition which, extended our time but since we're travelling next to the river Mandakini, the road didn't seem to decrease our excitement.
At around 1:30 pm, we reached the Sankari village where we had our lunch and booked our 2x2 tents, as it's easy to negotiate early itself.
The price for each 2x2 tent was Rs. 800, which seemed pretty reasonable. We finally packed our trekking bag, took the eatables, left the unnecessary luggage in the car and started our 3 km journey to tal.
