This is the greatest and the most loveliest trek ever. I had the time of my life here in this trek. We as a gang of four friends took this package, and the next thing we know was that we had a complete itinerary in the mail and it was nicely followed through the trek. Coming back to the concept of trekking, it was an exciting experience. I totally loved the trek. It was the most beautiful and wonderful trek that I have ever taken. Everything was so beautiful and the surroundings were breath taking. It was totally a worthy trek.

Day 1 starts with the journey in the tempo traveler from Dehradun Railway station. Slowly you'll leave all the crowded places ..vehicles..pollution..and enter into the clean and green Mother nature where you see almost no people and small villages...small and smooth roads. Feels like valleys and mountains are calling you .. that fresh air makes you breathe a longer and longer one..the a reach a small village called pantwari where our trek starts..It started with the proper instructions to be followed all over the trek..then starts the real trek...rocky trail for few kms. it makes your legs pain.. Your heart starts beating more than 150 BPM. But, once you start realizing the mother nature around you..those clouds touching you..the flowers around the trail welcoming you..the pain will get converted to the happiness the heart feels..the eye sees..you can feel the sound of some water fall around you..But, you'll smile and sit there and enjoy the calming sound when you realize that it's the air flowing through the valley. Then you'll slowly enter into the steepy trail with grass and mud. You'll reach the base camp where you'll be welcomed by hot pakode and chai..Then the Bonfire..talking to the co-trekkers..their experiences..light music..Nice homely food and then ends the day 1 with star gazing with the beautiful moon light. Day 2 started early from the base camp and reached the summit as early as possible to see the beautiful overlap of mountains on one side and the stunning Bandarpunch, Swargarohini peaks on the other side. Enjoyed that bliss of the nature. It makes you feel like you are in the lap of nature. Makes you forget your mobile..network..people around you..your profession..your daily job pressure..Just the Peace...
