Tungnath was on my bucket list for a long time and I had already decided to go there this winters. So my friends and I decided to go there by bikes. So the date was fixed and were ready to go on 8th Jan. As the day came near the excitement was increasing. So the day came and were off to go. Me and my 4 friends started our ride to Chopta on bikes. Started at 9:00 am from Dehradun. First checkpoint was Rishikesh. Then started again with our josh high but due to Char dham Yatra Road Project going on we got stuck in jam many times. Second checkpoint was Devprayag but we didnt stop here because we were already late. Devprayag is the confluence of Bhagirathi and Alaknanda rivers which forms the name and river Ganga, the lifeline of India. We continued our ride and reached Srinagar at 5pm which was very late. We ate there and started moving for Chopta in cold and dark conditions. We reached Ukhimath at 8pm from where Chopta is 30km only. We thought it will be easy now but...this was the toughest part of whole trip. First 20km were easy and we started seeing snow at the edges of road. But as we moved forward, thick layer of ice on road started making problems for us. We didnt knew the exact location of the room which we booked so we were moving without any knowledge and I advice everyone never do and take such risks. Our lives were literally at stake as we didnt know where to stay and our bikes also were not able to get a grip on roads. There was no one around from whom we could get help. But we still continued. After 1 and a half hour of struggle we finally reached a place called Bhaniyakund. Its 5km back from Chopta. And when we started reading the names of hotels we found our hotel in which we booked room. We reached to our room at 10pm and they were sleeping. We asked them to give us food but there was nothing so they made Maggi for us. Water was frozen there so they gave hot water to drink. There was so water in bathroom etc. So we managed accordingly. Temperature was -10•C and we thanked god for making us reach safely. At 12 we slept keeping in mind a beautiful trek is awaiting us .
