We went straight towards our tent.
Had some rest
Then came out to view the stars .
It was like billions of stars above .. I had never seen enough stars in my life before.
This was one of the best moments of the trip.

During our stay campfire was not allowed so we didn't had any musical night.
Temperature came really low during the night around 0-1°c.

Had our dinner (Rajma Chawal).
Then we all sang songs...played games and finally slept.

Day 2

Woke up early around 5:30 am.
Don't miss the sunrise. We all waited for the sun to come out .
And it was so so beautiful.

Day 4

Reached Patiala next morning around 8am.
Went to our hostel and I slept for the whole day.

Overall the trip was amazing.This was my first trek experience.
I enjoyed a lot.For beginners Triund Trek is the best. It's easy without any hurdles.
Himalayas are always fascinating.

And if u have enough time and strength left don't forget to trek further towards Snow Line.
And at Bhagsunaag do visit Shiva Cafe.

It's the end of the trip.

Thanks a lot friends.God bless you all ❤️
