I have always been used to being alone. “Being used to” in the sense that I didn’t necessarily love it. Recently, when loneliness became an escape, it developed into something more beautiful, "Solitude". I have visited Uttarakhand before with my family and mi amigos. It had always been constrictes to Kumaon and mostly the famous hillstations, Nainital, Bhimtal, Almora, Naukuchiatal etc. The Garhwal territory was relatively unexplored and the desire to stir my inner substance was on an all time high. This culminated into the plan of an unplanned solo trip. Some friends had done the Tungnath trek and it had been highly recommended so, it was on the list. Tungnath came with the package of Chandrashila peak as well. Deoria was another such recommendation and the photos looked spectacular.
