As we moved closer to Sankri, the road became narrower and mobile network poorer. But views got better and better with an increase in snow covered roads and trees. Finally, we reached Sankri around 3 PM and the village was entirely white. The small village with everything set up in a different world than ours, a fresh environment, a difficult but rewarding place to live everything was so contrasting. We reached Indiahikes Sankri Camp which confronts the huge mountains. Searching for some food we roamed in and around this little village where everything was filled with snow. By the sundown when our whole team was there while performing initial formalities there was a cloud of uncertainties with lots of questions, confusions, and talks, on whether the trek will happen? If yes how far it would go? The trail will be full of snow? And so many other questions about weather, trail, snow, rain, difficulties and the list goes on. More than half the group was not willing to go, while a handful of us wanted to do it.
After dinner and briefing, we stepped out for a lazy walk to experience the awfully cold and completely dark surroundings.
