In the early part of the 2017, one fine afternoon as I was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed and I came across a video of the mighty Chadar Trek. I was blown away by the beauty of the landscape in that video. The idea of climbing a Himalayan Giant seemed interesting to me. And thereby I started my research. I googled everything there was about Chadar Trek and was soon led down by knowing it was only for experienced hikers. However, I started looking for introductory treks that one might take on and I shortlisted Sandakphu and Kedarkantha. Both were winter treks but Sandakphu does not receive any snow anymore and therefore I chose Kedarkantha, slightly more challenging than Sandakphu, however an equally beautiful trek. With a year in hand, I began jogging on a along with other basic physical training.
