Guest Post: When the Kedarkantha Trek became too challenging

Recently I went to Kedarkantha trek which is considered as one of the easiest trek for the beginners. But with the level of snow (aound 7-8 ft.) out there, it became one of the most challenging trek. I share my story here; Happy reading 🙂

Day 1 (31st January): Started from Faridabad by my car at 2:00 AM. Picked up two of my friends from Dilshad garden at around 3:15 AM and reached Dehradun at around 7:30 AM. Picked up our guide Bachan (owner of Himalaya Shelter and one of the best guide I must say) from there and then headed to Sankri, base camp to start Har Ki Dun and Kedarkantha trek, where we reached at 5:00 PM

Srinagar, the summer capital of Jammu and Kashmir has always sustained the limelight mostly for infamous reasons. Srinagar, truly is paradise and treat for your soul. You can actually plan long vacation to Srinagar and surrounding areas.

Spotted!!! No-Name? Really.

A “No Name” Cafe, isn’t the name intriguing !!!

We spotted a ‘No Name’ cafe at Bhagsunath Falls, located right besides the Bhagsunath Temple.There are two interesting things about this cafe. Firstly as I mentioned ‘No Name’, may be to make it make more catchy and appealing the owner decided not to name it atall!!! Secondly, you will also observe a symbol of “Om”, (majestically Indian). Most Indians strongly believe that mentioning name of the God before everything or any work(whether it’s opening a shop or writing an exam) brings success. So you will find lot of people, shops named after the Lord.

Bhagsu Waterfall is located close to McLeodganj, Himachal Pradesh, India.

Adventure Ride to Dainkund Peak

Things to know, before you go on a bike ride to Dainkund Peak

Our fondness for backpacking has taken us on lots of road trips in past five years and maximum of them have been to some location in Himachal Pradesh. Himachal is like assorted bouquet of exotic flowers, you just can’t have enough and can’t get over it, the more you explore, the hungrier you become 🙂

This Road Trip was part of our 3-days tour to Himachal Pradesh, India covering Mcleodganj-Dalhousie-Dainkund Peak and back. Time was certainly of essence as we had 4 days including travel from Delhi to the destination. We boarded HPTDC Volvo from Delhi to Dharamshala, then took a cab till Mcleodganj (the distance is ~9kms) and continued our journey on bike from there. We experienced incredible moments of wonder, adrenaline rush, excitement and peace and experiences shall always be shared, so here we are! There are certain things one needs to evaluate before taking a road trip by Motor Bike, particularly on this route.

  • Fitness is Critical: ‘Healthy body and healthy mind are keys to blissful life’. This applies to road trips as well. Being fit has really helped us during traveling, we have been able to explore & test our limits on most of our trips – be it Srinagar, Rajasthan or Himachal etc. It gives you so much of confidence and mental strength.We follow a fitness regimen to the maximum extent possible & have tried to inculcate a routine in our lifestyle and that really helps to continue our grueling tours.

  • Right Time of the Year: The climatic conditions are likely to impact your travel plans always. We planned this trip in April as the season from March – May bears pleasant climate & moderate changes in hill stations. Definitely a road trip has to be avoided in monsoons to hill stations as there is an impending danger of landslides & during extreme winters also it’s not conducive. It always helps to keep track of the meteorology of a particular place before your visit.

The beautiful views that you’ll witness will fill your heart with wonder 🙂
