This is one of the most common questions that I’ve been asked and every time I begin my answer by saying “it’s a long story”. So I decided to write it down in a blog post. It all started with my engineering during which I realized that yes! Travelling is my passion and it can …
Here one can find all my personal travel experiences of road trips, family trips, treks, and other activities.
Woke up to a fresh and chilled morning. We went out in the balcony to check the weather and it was still raining :/ Now we knew that we will have to ride throughout the trip by wearing raincoats.
The most saddening thing about 2020 for a person like me is that I haven’t been able to travel this year yet. To get over from this irritation, I usually write blogs about my previous travel experiences so that I can relive those moments and feel stable from inside.
Most of the people start their trekking in the Himalayas either with Triund or Kasol. In my case, I started with Nag Tibba & Triund was my second trek.
After exploring Jibhi, Jalori Pass and Rolla, now it was time to explore a new place which we’d never heard of. We planned to visit Shangarh, a beautiful hamlet in Sainj Valley.
We had already made up our mind to visit this tiny hamlet, Gushaini and do the Rolla trek in the Great Himalayan National Park after suggesting by one of the locals in Jibhi, who was also the campsite owner.
The advantage of travelling solo is that you don’t have to think much regarding the location. You just decide and travel. But if you are travelling with a group of friends then finalising a location becomes a task
We began the trek by 6 am and moved towards Bali Pass, situated at 4950 m. We had to climb 350 m through a steep trail having hard snow. We walked for a few 100 m and snow patch started. The trek leader gave us microspikes so that we could climb properly.
After cleansing our face with the chilled river water, we had our breakfast and got ready for today’s trek. The local guide already told us that today’s trek is going to be a little tough and steep so we all were prepared.
I know its quite late to jot down this blog because I did this trek back in 2016 when I used to be an amateur trekker. This was the 3rd trek of my life and one of the toughest till now. The experience was so amazing that I could still relive the moments from the trek and that is why I am writing this blog.
