Day 5

Banikhet to Bairagarh -
This time we traveled very less and covered only 111km and took rest in Bairagarh, a town 30kms far from Sach Pass. On that day the temperature was approx 16-17℃ but in the next morning, the temperature was approx 10℃ in Bairagarh. At that time we all had a strange feeling that something is gonna happen.

Day 6

Bairagarh to Sach Pass -
We left Bairagarh and Rode to Sach Top. We covered 30-35kms in 2 hours. On that day i understood why is it called "The Daddy Of All Passes". There were no Roads just stones of all sizes.
When the Sach Top was just 5kms away from us it started Snowing and made our way more slippery. The temperature was approx -10℃. Snowfall was beautiful, but on that roads it was dangerous too.
Finally, we reached and saw the Sach Top Temple. SachPass to Killar roads got blocked because of snow, so we came back to Bairagarh.
