My first ever trek in North India! and what better place than Mcleodganj to begin with. I went there with few friends of mine I met on Twitter. It was a beautiful experience, trekking amidst constant rains and greenery all around. My main purpose however was to see and feel snow although I failed at doing since I was already exhausted by the time I reached Snowline.
There is always a next time.
So we left Delhi from Majnu Ka Tilla at 6:30pm and reached Mcleodganj the next day at 6am.
On our way to the hotel room.

A few metres of trekking upwards takes you to Shiva Cafe.

We started from Dharamkot and reached this point, It’s the highest motorable road in Mcleodganj.
And the Blue Skies
I had to shoot a picture of mine at this level.

You find prayer flags through out your trek up.
You will come across lots of dogs on your way up. Some will even join you and guide you through out the trek.
That’s SNOWHITE, who volunteered to be our Guide Dog till Snowline point. Very possessive and caring indeed. He would always wait for everyone before moving ahead.
That’s Check Point 1.
Finally reached Triund amidst all the rain.
Those are my new possession: My Quechua shoes!
Where the sky is are blue.
Triund is situated at 2843 mts.
