    Day 3: 110 km

    Berinag - Thal - Birthi - Munsiyari

    The third day was the most relaxing day of the tour, only 110 km to Munsiyari and we had ample amount of time in our hand. The rambling narrow road with smooth tarmac, the ravishing beauty of the valley under refreshing morning sunlight, the meandering stream along the road… it is difficult to describe the feeling but we knew that we were experiencing some of the best moments of our life. With every inch we were moving closer to the Panchachuli peaks, which were playing hide and seek behind other mountain ridges.































    After noon we reached the snow covered Kalamuni top, which is about 10 km before Munsiyari. You can guess the excitement in someone who had never seen snow and traveled hundreds of miles just for it. We played in the snow for two hours until we were dead tired and then continued the ride towards Munsiyari. At 4:30 pm we reached the town and booked into a hotel. The hotel owner suggested visiting the local Nanda Devi temple which was about a km from the town. But it was already getting dark and so we decided to skip, which I must say I regret it now after seeing some of its pictures on the internet. In the evening, we strolled around the market inquiring about guides for the trek to Khalia top that we had planned the next morning.














    Day 4: 70 km

    Munsiyari - Thal
    The trek started at 9 in the morning about 8 km from Munsiyari. We started feeling tired in just 15 minutes, not sure whether it was the cold or the fatigue from previous three days of ride. Initial part of the trek was mostly free of snow, but as we gained in altitude the walk became tougher over the slippery snow. We were frustrated with falling through the snow at every few steps and were so exhausted that breaks had to be taken every few minutes. It was 1 in the afternoon and we had not even reached half the distance and snow was getting deeper. We had our lunch, took a few snaps and decided to descend… consoling ourselves that may be next time we will reach the top when it is free of snow.




    Breakfast time












    The guide















    Day 5: 520 km


    Thal - Chaukori - Bageshwar - Almora - Bhowali - Haldwani - Rudrapur - Rampur - Moradabad - Hapur –Delhi

    Like all tours, the last day was mostly un-happening and tiring. However, we did get to enjoy some spectacular sights of the Himalayas and alpine forests while passing through Chaukori and near Binsar. From Nainital, we took the highway as we had to travel during the night and by early morning of the sixth day we reached Delhi. Although we had done a few trips to the hills, but this tour was the most amazing one in our experience. The views of the snow covered Panchachuli peaks and the unadulterated landscape of Uttarakhand will always be cherished in our memories.
