Woke at 5 and left by 6 towards the Monal point. Ofcourse everyone wished to see the Himalayan Monal first. Spent few hours around that point, saw and photographed many species. We drove towards mandal road . Did little birding/photography there. Couldn't find many birds. We drove back towards chopta. Had lunch at one of the dhaba at mukku bend. To our luck we witnessed the Palkhi of Tungnath Mahadev on the way. Suddenly there was change in the climate, it snowed, rained. After an hour or so we decided to go to the mukku farm. On the way it started raining. But we didn't want to go back to the hotel room so we continued birding but when it started raining heavily so we decided to go back as we couldn't see much birds. It kept raining till night. We had dinner and slept off.
