- Sreedevi Rajesh This is a continuation from the article Trekking through the Himalayas - Story VIII While we started from our camp for Himalayan adventure trip, we were provided with a list of items to be carried out for high level trekking- a pair of goggles and an UV polarized glass to escape from 'White Out” phenomenon where the surroundings will be sprinkling silvery. If observed with naked eyes, it would be stinging. Sun blazed gloriously above, making everything shine under it. Our guide told us that we had reached our dream destination. The winning for which we had struggled for; 'The Chanderkhani Pass’. We were at the peaks of excitement and pride that we had conquered one of the highest spot of Himalayan ranges adventurously. We had 1 hour of amusement there. The click

This is a continuation of the article Trekking through the Himalayas - Story VI   We took repose in an uninhabited open place where the ascend terminates and slope begins. It was a great relief to have a resting time after crossing a terror striking path. All of a sudden the camp leader hastened to resume the journey as there was a probability for torrential rain. We hurried down the slope disregard of rain, eventhough it was tough to move on. Rain water was flowing at our ankle levels and we walked forward poking with staffs to find the obstacles before each footstep. Many of our fellow men tumbled down through the slope. No serious casualties were there as it was not that fearful one. My cautiousness saved me from any accidents. I also thanked my water proof trekking shoes for

This is a continuation from the article, Trekking through the Himalayas- Story V I trudged solely through the shower of rain, spotting the sign boards to track our campsite. Distantly, near a scarp, the encampmemt caught my sight. The camp-sheds were situated on a plane adjacent to the scarp. The camp premises were almost florified with a herb resembling Water Hyacinth, dancing with the breeze. I dashed towards the site howling and screaming as a sign of relief. The path towards the campsite was muzzy and large masses of cow droppings swamped all around. We struggled to make out our way screened by dense foliages. Somehow managed to get in there with soggy clothes and dirty boots. We cleaned our dresses and foot wears, and occupied our tents for resting. We did not find find our ...

Trekking through the Himalayas - Story IV We woke up to the 6th day of our Himalayan expedition. Lazily we got up, finished our morning chores, packed up and moved for tea. The steamy tea was buoyant and we commenced the journey, singing patriotic songs. The camp leader was a nice person and in a day's acquaintance a good rapprochement developed between us. Unlike our expectation, the journey started from a precipice afar the camp-shed. After a few minutes of climbing , my body started to resist. I couldn't exactly make out the reason, but palpitation and stifling hindered my footsteps. The high altitude hit others too, I could read out from their dispirited faces. We at last got to the grass crowned crest and fell flat. Our breath slowed down after a few minutes and started to s...

This is a continuation from the former article, Trekking through the Himalayas: Story III All group members of our camp gathered and joined our guide to continue our Himalayan expedition with bravura. The camp members along with the guide and his helpers moved on for fresh and new experiences. Within next five minutes of walk, the plain landscape ended which lead to a slightly slanting terrain. We were able to see the other end of the channel from this side itself and we walked along the left side which had beautiful green meadows with pine trees behind. The other side was quite steep. We continued our trek through the channel and when we reached a certain extend, totally exhausted, the guide told us about a steel pipe laid by the water authority which went beneath the terrain.
