How would things go was the 1st thing in our mind. We planned this all girls trip almost four months ago and yet planned it in monsoon. We kept tracking the weather and on August the 13th we reached Delhi. Our bus was delayed by 5 hours and after a 14 hour long journey we managed to reach Bhuntar. The 1st tip we learnt was to have enough time for transit as the bus operators are not much known for their punctuality.
When we reached Kasol it was already afternoon and raining heavily. We came to know our camp was 25 minutes downhill walk and we were standing there right at the edge of the hanging Chalal bridge with huge luggages in hand drenching there. Om bhaiya of the Himalayan Camps came to our help and he sent Jagatram bhaiya for our help who was no less than a Superman. The 25 minute trail in this weather was no moonwalking but as soon as we reached there the view was breathtaking. A camp side just on the river bed and mountains all around ttached bath costs approximately Rs3000 per night.
It was an altogether different world. A world away from he city lives provided us with immediate peace. Maggie, coffee and coke followed.
We couldn't consider ourselves fittest among all so we decided to shift the next day. The weather gave us a warm smile and surprisingly the uphill walk became much easier.
