Tungnath, a place which has a hold over me.
I had completed this trek in August of 2016 with my good friend Gaurav. However, silently I had made a promise to myself of returning back here someday.
And so I did, in the Spring of 2018. Around the mid of April I planned a weekend getaway with my friend. She'd never trekked/camped ever in her life & so I thought of introducing the mountains to her with an easy and isolated trek. Hence Chandrashila trek, served both purposes here. To reunite myself with the mountains and to introduce another soul & ignite the love for mountains.
We reached Kashmiri Gate ISBT and planned to catch a bus from here till Rishikesh. The mango people we were, we hopped on to the next available inter-city bus. It was crowded but we got seats.
Cost from Delhi to Rishikesh: Rs 275/- (per head).
Upon reaching Rishikesh, our driver picked us up from the bus stand. I had booked the taxi from GozoCabs. A cab company of whom I'd heard good reviews. They didn't charge for the round-trip as well, leaving us more flexibility to plan the trip.
