After my first trek, the Valley of Flowers, I was hooked. As with most newbie travellers, I was barely back home from my first trek, when I started itching to go out again,back to the mountains.
This itch turned into a plan by the end of September, where Gandhi Jayanti was giving me a long weekend.But the time was still short.
After endless hours of googling weekend treks, we hit the jackpot with Sandakphu. Now, generally this is a 6 day trek, but given our dearth of time, we decided to squeeze it into 3 days instead.Challenge accepted!
Well, I left the planning to Prashant, bowing to his (much) larger experience in trekking.I just got super excited that I'm going for my second trek!
Our journey started with us taking a night train from Howrah to NJP station.On arriving, we took a local shuttle till Ghoom. It was well past noon when we reached there, and it took us a while to get another hitch to our next stop, Mane Bhanjang.
