If travelling is your life's goal and trekking in Himalayas has always been your first priority, then you must take a trekking trip to Roopkund Trek. Known as "the land of Dead", this trek is both adventurous and breathtaking. Booking a guide, tents and food beforehand and buying all those trekking gears could hike up your expenditure to INR 20,000 on this trek. But do not get disheartened my friend, because there are ways in which you cut short on your expenditure and can take this trip at dirtcheap price. If i can manage my expenses, so can you. Here is how you can do this:
There is no direct route, so, if you are travelling from Delhi, then take a train to Kathgodam. A number of trains are available from which you can choose from. Once you reach Kathgodam, head to the bus stand and take a shared jeep to Gwaldham. From Gwaldham you have to again change your taxi, there are frequent shared jeep available on this stretch. This 23 kms journey takes one hour and fare is 40 INR per person. Some private buses also operate on this stretch. From here you will easily get a jeep to Lohajung at a price of INR 50. The whole journey i.e. from Delhi to Lohajung would cost you INR 130.
