"Mountains are not stadiums where I satisfy my ambition to achieve , they are the cathedrals where i practice my religion."
There comes a time when you embark upon a journey and never wish to see it end. I had similar experience in the Har Ki Dun trek.
Har Ki Dun- The valley of Gods, legends say that Pandvas passed through this valley in an attempt to reach heaven alive.Mt. Swargarohini (20,819ft) at the end of the valley was the final point which laid way to heaven.While all the Pandvas died in the attempt to cross it, Yudishtar and his dog were the only survivors who could make it to heaven.The locals of Oshla,Gangad and Seema village still believe in these stories and consider themselves to be descendants of Pandavas.
We started our journey late night from Isbt Delhi and reached Dehradun early in the morning.
We took a local cab from Dehradun to Sankri. Sankri village served as our base camp, Sankri is about 200Kms from Dehradun-a total travel time of around 10 hours.
