Day 2
I'd only been on luxury trips before this, this was the first real trek. As I settled myself on the train to Silliguri, I had no idea what to expect. But isn't that like the Best part about traveling?
Day 3
So after reaching Silliguri, we took a bus and we went to Maneybhanjhang. The crazy amazing thing about this place was that There was this playground, largest I've ever seen with the backdrop of the Himalayas. Then there were the scary stories about headless boys, ghosts, monsters everything. The ghosts might be scary but the people were warm. Cooking a 200 momos for our group must've been really difficult, but they were the best momos we've had.
Day 4
This was THE day. A 10km trek. My first ever. Beginning of the trek I thought the scenery better be worth a 10 km walk. But in the first 2 km itself this thought had completely escaped my mind. Well the beauty of chitrey could do that to anyone. Then we continued walking our phone networks left us.We reached Meghma, the abode of the clouds. Indeed. The weather became colder, we were inside the clouds. The roads got a little narrower and slippier but we were motivated. When we finally reached our destination 10,000 ft up we dropped dead.
Day 5
We woke up pretty early to see the Kanchenjunga range. It's shaped like a sleeping bhudda, the locals told us. We couldn't see the range because of a cloudy weather but when we came back to the pretty, small and cosy 4-cottage village of Tumling, we were so full of energy we played blind man in the middle of the cottages and after lunch we went to Tonglu, another village. We saw the cutest animals there, kittens, puppies. It was an animal lover's heaven.
Day 6
We came back from Tonglu to Tumling, we built a bonfire had one of those movie nights. With the guitar, bonfire and a sky filled with stars. *Gets goosebumps remembering it* the next day we were to trek back to Maneybhanjhang.
Day 7
This trek was scary. It was raining heavily, we caught no good sights. It was raining so hard, it seemed like the rough pebbled roads had turned into rivers. We tightly held on to our raincoats and napsnacks and hoped none of us would be hurt
Day 8
We reached Maneybhanjhang, went to Silliguri, took trains from there and got back to reality. But reality had slightly changed, we had amazing memories to look back on, to cheer us up in case of a bad day. Also, I had overcome my fear of stray dogs and cats. Yayyyyyy.
