The day begins really very early at 2 a.m., you can feel your numb hands and shivering body but the spirit keeps you going. Putting your gathers and spikes (equipments required for snow trek) and holding the torch in your hand you begin the journey to reach the top. It's dark and freezing cold but the excitement is double and the you can't wait to be on the top.
The steep narrow path is all fine till it's dark, once you start seeing the path it's becomes scary with every step but the spikes keeps a check that you don't loose balance.
And by 6 a.m. you are at the Top of the world, metaphorically.
You can see the sun rise from the top and so beautiful it looks, you cannot take off your eyes.
Very soon you see the mountains and the clouds flouting around. Serene indeed.
You enjoy the view for 2 hours and now it's time to return with a feeling of accomplishment.
And from here the easy journey begins, till you don't loose the balance. And as I had weak legs I took precautions and walked slowly and enjoyed my journey rather than secretly competing with anyone in my tribe.
You can slide down the snow and cover the distance of few kilometers in few minutes.
Descent doesn't take toll on your stamina but the pressure is on your knees now, but anyhow it's an easy happy path.
By 11 a.m. within 3 hours of playing and walking down you are back to your base camp. Where you need to grab your lunch and make a move quickly within few hours to harrgaon.
It's again a 3 hours descent from the Kedarkantha base camp to hargoan.
A happy journey from snow to forests.
After reaching to the camp in Hargoan, you aren't tired, though it's the longest day of the trip and can make the most of the night.
Enjoy the stars in the clear sky. I would always recommend you to choose your trek days during full moon, so you can enjoy the beautiful sky.
You can party, sing and enjoy. Or rather introspect and feel like a speck in this universe.
Nights are beautiful silent and dark. You can hear the breeze and feel them in every inch of your body even after many layers of clothes. Life is nothing but beautiful here you don't worry about how you look and you tend forget about life problems and feel blessed to be a part of this beautiful beautiful world.
