The path wasn't so easy after crossing the mid way and it was obviously dark which made it worse for us. If we had miscalculated our any step we were surely felling from the valley. Our every step had to be very calculated as it was just snow underneath us. But this was still okay, and we kept moving on. The shocking thing was it was all of ours first trek to Grahan, none of us had ever visited or trekked down to Grahan. And we couldn't choose a better time for the first time😂 So none of us knew the exact way, and obviously we found no one trekking to the same place at that time. And then the worst thing happened to us, our torch batteries started to go down. 1,2,3 and at the end all went off. Luckily some of our phone batteries were there, but on that we couldn't rely for a long time. This is when our morals got low, we started getting really scared if we were going to make it or no. In mountains you can never trust the animals. On our midway, a local guy had told us about one sheep that was hunted by a bear the day before. And guess what? We found footprints of a bear. Coming back to our few light sources, that started to go down one by one we started losing our confidence. Some suggested to stay, some suggested to head back, some thought they are going to die while some kept encouraging to keep moving until we find a place to stay. We just had one phone that was on by this time, and there was a steep climb that we had to make, we could only rely on our luck and obviously some techniques for that and we somehow managed to climb it one by one. Our only ray of hope for finding a village was an electrical line which one of us located. We kept following that. With only one torch and a group of 7 people, we finally located a few lights gleaming at a distance. A sigh of relief for all of us, we kept moving on to that direction and finally when we started to call for help, one guy, saviour in our eyes came to us. There it was Grahan Village!
The most adventurous trip I've had!
Scariest yet the most fun of them all Parvati Valley trips.
