From Kalipokhari I pushed for my final destination Sandakphu by 8 am . As I ascent via Bikhay bhanjyang it started to snow. The higher I went up the more it started to snowfall . My pace slowed down and it took more energy to cover the same distance. Finally I made it to the summit without expecting much as the weather was turning bad by each passing hour. I thought to myself and realised that the sandakphu trek is each to his own . Some enjoy the beautiful mountains , some enjoy the rhodendrons and some enjoy the snowfall as I did. And it occur to me trekking is not about the destination it's more about the journey and the experiences you have along the way.
I didn't stay long at Sandakphu as there was nothing for me to see much around so I made my onward descent to Rimbick via Gurudum , Sri Khola route. Along the route I met many trekkers some were from Kolkata , Kurseong, Nepal and even from Bangladesh .
Reached Rimbick by 5 pm and stayed at Hotel Green . A very comfortable and delicious chicken meal was served at night. The Pala of the hotel even arranged for the shared TaXi next morning till Jorethang , Sikkim .
