we started our journey at 9:30 am from sagar village and our first stop was chandrakoti (distance 2km), and there we met an amazing local person I don't remember his name but there was something lovely happend to us, it was hot at that time around 11:30am, He offered us juice of buransh flower and it was deliciously amazing and so healthy. one must have that juice for strength and further climb. click to see what happend..!!
So we had that BURANSH flower juice and started again for another 2km towards PUNG BUGYAL (Bugyal stands for open wide grass land). It was quite easy to be there, in another one hour we were at PUNG BUGYAL. there we rested for half hour and we had our lunch, and almost everything was there in the food tent. (chawal,dal,sabzi,roti,maggi,tea,coffee).Pung bugyal was a small grass land surrounded by the mountains and clouds you can see by your self by clicking on the link below.
our next stop was MOULI KHARAK, now we have to walk a bit higher speed as its a steep climb of 4km through the jungle but it was heaven feeling. it was so silent and peaceful that one can hear his/her own heart. I cannot express my feeling, what actually u can hear is birds chirping and air. Our guide SHIV told us about the place that its toughest KEDAR from all of the PANCH KEDAR. (Kedarnath, madhmaheshwar, tungnath, rudranath, kalpnath) and we started feeling the toughness. One must carry the water bottle and basic packet food, so that whenever they feel tired just have them and start walking.
Three hours of climbing we reached to mouli kharak, as we reached the point of mouli kharak we saw only one tent and it was about to close but shiv told to the tent owner that allows us to stay, he was discussing with the tent owner suddenly shiv told us to move a bit forward to 1 more km as the another stoppage i.e LEUTI BUGYAL was there on upside. But we found this place mouli kharak beautiful. it was situated at near to cliff and view was amazing, from there i can see the pung bugyal down and panar bugyal cliff on upside. so we stayed there for one night. our first day was bit difficult but we were happy.
