Day 1

This was my 1st day in the yatra. I started directly from my office in Gurugram at 1:57 am on 23rd May 2019 and reached my destination at around 1:45 pm on the same day. It was my first time driving in the mountains so I was quite thrilled about it. At times, I had to stop my car as being a first timer, I didn't know how to drive car in the mountains and many times I thought I may not make it. But say it God's mercy or boon I was able to reach my destination without any greater difficulty. My room costed Rs. 500 per night.

Day 2

I started the 5 kms trek to Yamunotri early morning at around 4:56 am on 24th May 2019. This trek is really beautiful and giving you the glimpse of beautiful surroundings of this holy place.

Day 3

I left for Gangotri soon after reaching my hotel back from Yamunotri temple. It was another day of continuous driving and being a new driver in mountains, I didn't want to take any chances. I'd say this journey was more difficult for me as compared to the one for Yamunotri. My destination was still around 45 kms far when it got night and I stopped for the night at hotel Rs. 1000. I survived that night just on 1 maggie. Next morning on 25th May 2019, I woke up early in the morning at around 5 am and left for my destination. I reached Gangotri at around 7:45 am and searched for a hotel which fortunately, I got one room for Rs. 600 per night. I got to know what I had to take a permit for going to Gaumukh (where the Bagirathi river starts from). Instead of hiring a guide, I got along with 2 persons who have also come there for Gaumukh trek and Gangotri darshan. Unfortunately, I couldn't make it till Gaumukh because I got fallen sick due to high altitude sickness after crossing Chirbasa which is in the middle (at a distance of 9 kms) of Gangotri and Gaumukh. I then decided not to further and started my descent to Gangotri. In the evening I got back to Gangotri and after having dinner, I went straight ahead to my room as I was tired a lot.

And this concludes my journey to Yamunotri & Gangotri on 26th May 2019. I hope to return to this place to complete my trek to Gaumukh.
