Boarded the bus from Haridwar to Rudraprayag. Roads are to be four lane and a smooth drive but not for us, thanks to the work of all season road project ( future will be 4 hour drive to Gaurikund).
The 7 hour journey would be tiring if we would not have our funniest members with some fights and food.
Booked a cab from Rudraprayag to Chopta. As we enter the wilderness of Mountains, team is stunned with the beauty and obviously the cold.
Onroad chai and Maggie some songs and pics supported us to not to feel tired from a 2:30 hours journey.
Hotel rooms are packed and visitors are roaming around in search of shelter. Cancellation of any booking can only be the hope of getting a room and that’s what happened.
Some drinks and rest ...
Started our trek to Chandrashila with torch lights and some warm woollens.
Freezing morning and some beginners made the travel bit difficult but we managed to reach before 6AM at Chandrashila.
Eyes are waiting to see the magical sunrise on Himalayan peaks.
And there we see the Mother Earth’s play of colours, beauty and mesmerising Himalayas. Water bottles by now are frozen and with some memorable clicks we made our way back to Tungnath.
