    Bus from Haridwar to RudraprayagRudraprayag to Ukhimath.Ukhimath to Sari Village! Cabs are also available..bit costly
    Couple of years ago,I had no motto.All I had was time,so I decided to do what I love the most : Travel. While in Rishikesh,I overheard a couple of foreigners(Ironic? Nay) talking about Tugnath,the highest Shiva temple in the world.I found my next destination while sipping my tea.

    Alaknanda & Bhagirathi merge here.The Birth of River Ganges :')
    When its the Himalayas,the journey is as charismatic as the destination.Ever since I was a child,I had been taught the importance of Ganga,be it the water or the Goddess.I never really practised any religion on my own but to see the birthplace of the Ganga did leave me spellbound
  • Rudraprayag
    Rudraprayag
    Confluence of Alaknanda & MandakiniWay to Kedarnath & Badrinath
    Travelling in local buses tells you stories,you never would have heard of.This place was once infamous for a man-eating Leopard,who was then killed by Jim Corbett.The road here diverges to Kedarnath & Badrinath.The aftermath of 2013 Kedarnath floods was horrendous in this region.
  • Sari
    Sari
    Explore the village on your own :')It takes 8hrs from Haridwar.
    Maybe I belong in the mountains.No matter how far I travel somehow I manage to get pulled towards the remote parts of the mighty Himalayas.I pass through so many villages & ridges,each of them have a story to tell & the best part about exploring is being a part of those stories.

    Every time I go to places,I wonder how those places are a home to people.How a travel "wonder" for us,is something that they come across on a regular basis. Just the way these hardworking women became a part of my trail but I probably never existed for them. Story of life..maybe?

    Trek to the lake from Sari : 2.5kmGrab your trekking & camping gears!The overnight camp & photography:')
    It was a pretty small & easy trek through the Rhododendron forest.There are some places that pump your adrenaline up & then there are some,like this,that calm your nerves in an unrecognizable way.I was lucky enough to see the reflection of Chaukhamba peak in the lake.

    Star Gazing :')
    I had come across a trio of girls & they needed someone to share a tent & I needed a tent. So,there we were :D.The tale of Pandavas being questioned at this lake was the "star" of the night.I sat by myself for an hour,asking a few of my questions to the stars & then I dozed off.

    Trek to Bhrujgali in Chopta.It's a 14km trekTakes around 7 or 8 hours. You can also take a car to Chopta.
    It's funny how I never move an inch at home & keep getting scolded by my parents no matter how much I age.But when it comes to trekking,I leave no stone unturned..literally. It was through Rhododendron forest & I did see a few exotic birds.I was gearing up for the big trek ahead
  • Chopta
    Chopta
    Camp overnight for an early start!You can stay at a lodge as well.No shops after this point.
    I've always loved the base camps for the treks.It has a bit of both of the route & the destination in it. The sound of the cowbells reminded me of DDLJ.Its annoying how I have never come across any Raj on any of my trips.Just kidding..maybe not. :3

    The 3 girls & I had exhausted our ration for the day & were looking for some food in the valley.4 hungry girls is never a good sight to behold.That was when we saw a couple of foreigners savoring a sumptious meal at this place!How do they always know the go-to place? We followed.

    ALWAYS keep a raincoat with you.It's 3km long. Carry enough water.
    It is often called a beginner's trek but what I believe is,even the simplest of treks can be as enlightening as the most difficult ones. Trekking is all about pushing yourself beyond your limits,both physically & aesthetically. I love the sound of the rocks when I step on them.

    In the mountains..especially in the Himalayas,there are no sign boards on the trails. These cairns,made by the locals & the trekkers are present to mark the path, in case one loses one's way. They have helped me in two such occasions,maybe that's another story to tell. :')
  • Tungnath
    Tungnath
    Highest Shiva Temple in the world.Highest of the five Kedars. :')
    There I was,it wasn't the peak yet but the place that I had overheard about,in Rishikesh,was right infront of me.Its amusing how the best treks have something mythological about them. Somehow I always feel spiritual when I'm right there.That's the thing about secluded places :')

    Its a 1km trek from Tugnath. The ascent is quite steep. Be careful.
    Right after Tugnath, majority decided to descend down but I would suggest everyone to go ahead because it isn't among the most difficult ascends.One has to be careful enough to not slip off the cliff. :3 Snow & worse..ice did make it a little hard for me but t'was alright. :')

    On reaching the peak,it reminded me of my Munsiyari Trail. Now I could see Kedar,Chaukhamba, Nanda devi in addition to the Trisul Mountains that I had seen in Munsiyari. With every trip,I went a little closer to the Himalayas,I felt a little calmer..I felt a little complete.:')
  • Tungnath
    Tungnath
    The entire time I was there,I couldn't help but think about the horrific 2013 Kedar floods that had tarnished the beauty & life of the entire region.On reaching the temple,I had a faint hope that maybe..maybe God will never again betray his followers like that.Millions' prayer.
