A few years back, vacation meant fancy hotels with room service and swimming pool. Until I started trekking. It completely changed my perspective. Now I crave for those desolate places where you can only reach by foot. The long walks clear my mind. Every trek touches my soul, it transforms me in some way that I am not aware of.
This August we went to the Valley of Flowers & Hemkund. By 'we' I mean "Team Argonaut". We are a group of trek enthusiasts from the northern suburb of Kolkata. We have around 20 members, but only 9 could make it for this trip.
Before I start documenting our journey I must warn the readers that Hemkund is a very popular destination for Sikhs, and the trek is incredibly crowded. If you prefer your treks to be desolate, this one can be avoided.
