DAY1: Bangalore to Delhi to Haridwar

We(Myself in addition to Randhir) reached Bangalore airdrome at 4:30 inward the morning.
The Indigo flying was quite good. No refreshments truthful , but no other fuss. It was right on fourth dimension in addition to the accept offs in addition to landings were polish , the crew were non sleepy in addition to overtly friendly.
That was it in addition to nosotros reached Delhi inward a whiz. When I awoke inward the flying , I could run across the beautiful ground beneath me in addition to the left wing of the aircraft. I took a quick snap of the aerial sentiment in addition to presently nosotros landed inward Delhi , collected our luggage in addition to were out of the airport.
We spent approximately fourth dimension at a friend's house inward Delhi. Our side yesteryear side goal was Haridwar.

At Delhi nosotros met the relaxation of the gang Dekar(Sekhar) , Halum(Prasun) , Podu(Avishek) to board the Jana Shatabdi prepare to Haridwar.
 It was right on fourth dimension in addition to the accept offs in addition to landings were polish  IndiaTravel; VALLEY OF FLOWERS

We reached Haridwar inward a few hours. Although Jana Shatabdi was rattling petty of Shatabdi lineament in addition to to a greater extent than oftentimes than non filled amongst insensitive Jana , the simmering rut of Delhi inward August was hardly discouraging. When nosotros reached Haridwar it was raining. The station was literally taken over yesteryear pilgrims amongst grim faces. Not an inch of platform was left for movement in addition to it was a lot of careful manoeuvrings betwixt the filth in addition to the platform dwellers that nosotros managed to come upwardly out of the station. I practice wonder amongst hundreds of pilgrims why don't they create proper retiring rooms , they tin fifty-fifty accuse on an hourly footing to hold the premises clean. Stations are lacking inward telephone commutation facilities.

We had booked a hotel before hand. It was a prissy hotel a brusque walk away from the station. After checking into the hotel (where I got a prissy map of the place) nosotros laid off for an early on dinner.Haridwar is a pure veg house in addition to nosotros are pure non-veg travelers. But hence nosotros enjoyed a dinner amongst hot rotis in addition to dal inward a nearby hotel which was rally cheap. But hence i time again the notion of cleanliness was void. Haridwar is also a bully house for fantabulous sweets of 'chana' or 'kheer' a processed flat of milk. If you lot tin instruct over the surround , the lineament is pretty decent, in addition to the cost tag damn cheap.

DAY 2: Haridwar to NandaPrayag

We had booked a Tata Sumo inward advance . It was scheduled for 9000 Rs to accept us from Haridwar to NandaPrayag, RudraPrayag,Joshimath, Badrinath in addition to finally facial expression at Gobindghat for three days for our provide from the actual trek.

Singh ji , our driver was rattling good spoken . His Hindi was immaculate in addition to precise. He was our natural guide on the route. We crossed Hrishikesh (or Rishikesh) , in addition to proceeded towards Joshimath .
The outset twenty-four hours journeying was equally eventful equally life itself. It was a brilliant twenty-four hours amongst approximately low-cal showers inward between. The route was the best role of the trip , curving in addition to twisting itself equally if inward the ecstasy of the bully Himalayas. Yes , the Himalayas are great. As nosotros ascended , in addition to equally the temperature dropped , the surround began to change.Greenery was visible everywhere in addition to the  It was right on fourth dimension in addition to the accept offs in addition to landings were polish  IndiaTravel; VALLEY OF FLOWERSmountains on all sides stood similar awestruck ghosts. And equally nosotros rose , nosotros saw the Alaknanda river en-route flowing downwards , its fury seemed to go decreasing equally it came downwards from places unknown.
We had to halt for the twenty-four hours inward a house called NandaPrayag. They had a decent room inward a hotel nearby. The house was rattling modest in addition to amongst hardly a hotel or two. We bought approximately basic materials in addition to had a wonderful dinner at a nearby restaurant. We were on a pure veg track, the rotis were delicious, parathas were stuffed in addition to sabzi was to a greater extent than oftentimes than non potatoes in addition to cauliflowers blended inward dissimilar ways.

DAY 3: NandaPrayag to Joshimath to Govind Ghat to Badrinath in addition to dorsum to Govind Ghat: Joy Baba Badrinath

Next twenty-four hours when nosotros started , it was already also tardily to achieve Gobindghat in addition to start the trek. Thats why nosotros decided to run to Badrinath directly. Even 20 years dorsum people had to go on pes from PeepalKoti to Badrinath. It was a trek of a lifetime inward itself. Being i of the most sacred places of the Hindus it attraced thousands of devotees all circular the public inward the summertime months. But inward Winter it was unopen in addition to several miles downwards Joshimath was the maximum achieve then. Things conduct hold changed a lot, in addition to nosotros were rattling fortunate that our vehicle around stopped at the gates of Shree Badrinath. But i time again nosotros started hence tardily it was getting black in addition to nosotros had to provide chop-chop .

 It was right on fourth dimension in addition to the accept offs in addition to landings were polish  IndiaTravel; VALLEY OF FLOWERSThe temple was to opened upwardly an hr later in addition to the dominion of the ground did non allow vehicles to go at night. I got a cyber cafe at Badrinath where I downloaded all my pics to a pen drive in addition to refreshed my photographic television receiver camera retention card.
The Ganges was flowing amongst awesome speed in addition to the air was moist in addition to the chill was hence stunning that I did non desire to run out without taking a glimpse of Badrinath.

But nosotros had to run out because the gate would go unopen later 4 o clock. ( That was a expert conclusion else nosotros would conduct hold been stuck for a few days there. There were major landslides all around)It was a beautiful journeying dorsum to Gobind Ghat . The sky of a abrupt cleared in addition to the beauty i time to a greater extent than showered on us. We bought approximately apples from a local vendor.
Then nosotros spent the relaxation of the flush inward Gobind Ghat . We were tired in addition to equally common at that spot was no geysers, hence it was a chilling storey of bathing , of organs fighting to rest fit.

DAY 4: Gobind Ghat to Ghangria ( xiii kms )

This is the actual trek. The initial role of the trek was quite tough. The torso warms upwardly also quickly. It is necessary to dull downwards in addition to accept rest. We were huffing in addition to puffing fifty-fifty before crossing 1 km. There are several places to relaxation hither in addition to there. Most people enjoyed this role of the trek , it was around a concrete road.

There is no demand to acquit bags. There are lots of mules around. We position all our bags on i mule, a few hundred rupees is the charge. The mules run fast in addition to hence does their owner. They driblet the handbag inward Ghangria.

After a few kilometres the trek starts becoming to a greater extent than beautiful. The dissonance of the river adds to the jingle. There are numerous tea shops in addition to petty shops where i tin instruct anything from a loving cup of tea to maggi , parathas, samosas, chewing gums, biscuits etc ,all at slightly premium prices.

Towards the terminate , at that spot is a span to cross the river in addition to hold the trek on the other side of the river. The span is stout , but because of incessant pelting the path nigh to the span was around washed away.

After the span in addition to a slight mild ascension the in conclusion ascension is i time again quite steep. It passes through a modest woods in addition to a clearing.

After this day's trek at that spot is hardly whatever run a endangerment that anyone volition go able to run around Ghangria. But if individual wants at that spot are quite a few modest restaurants , a Gurudwara , telephone booths in addition to modest shops in addition to lots of shabby ,smelly hotels to stay.
We stayed inward such a hotel. Electricity is available solely for a twain of hours during dinner fourth dimension in addition to early on morning time 4-6 am for people to instruct ready for the treks.

DAY five : Ghangria to Hemkund Sahib in addition to provide to Ghangria ( 12 kms total)

This is the trips toughest trek. If i has the capacity to brand this trek easily hence tin practice a lot I believe. There are mainly ii reasons for the difficulty. There is a lot of height change, the trek is brusque but quite steep. At approximately places at that spot are a few shortcuts , which I would propose people to avoid. There are ascents that volition examination the knees in addition to ankles. The other argue why this role is slightly treacherous is that if the atmospheric condition is non expert at that spot are several parts which volition mail a shake downwards he spine.

Mules are available inward this stretch also in addition to lots of people brand expert usage of them.

I reached Hemkund Sahib, but a chip also tardily inward the afternoon. My friend's told me that the Lake was sparkling inward the sunlight in addition to a care for to watch. The Gurudwara welcomes everyone. We had tea in addition to khichdri to our filling.

This house is hence heavenly that i would non experience similar going down. But if atmospheric condition is non expert its improve to essay to come upwardly downwards , breathing becomes easier. I had no problems amongst the breathing but at that spot were a few who had to go escorted downwards on mules.

Hemkund is also mesmerizing because of the exceptionally beautiful flowers, kamals or brahmakamals . There are dissimilar colored flowers which makes this trek rattling fruitful.

One must go careful piece coming downwards from Hemkund equally at that spot are numerous twists in addition to turns which are quite treacherous on the knees .

DAY half dozen : Ghangria to Valley of Flowers ( three kms -Inside the valley 4 kms ) --> Return to Ghangria --> Return to GobindGhat

This is the most beautiful role of the trek for a nature lover. One of the reasons is that mules are non allowed inward this trek in addition to hence no shit on the way. Its pristine.

The 2d argue is that rattling few people truly run to Valley of Flowers , solely a modest fraction of those who run to Hemkund Sahib. We did non repeat the error of the previous twenty-four hours in addition to hence nosotros were the outset ones to purchase the tickets into the Valley of Flowers.

After entering the National Park nosotros had to embrace a long distance , a leisurely walk in addition to hence cross a river. There is a prissy span built on the river. After the span the path starts becoming slightly difficult. But later Hemkund trek nosotros made it rattling easily.

Then came i of the major roadblocks. There was a huge canvas of H2O ice on the route , that came downwards right from the summit of the mount similar a glacier in addition to it went straight into the river to flat a huge canopy of H2O ice on the river.

With bully patience, rattling like shooting fish in a barrel , i yesteryear i nosotros managed to cross this H2O ice block. I would tell people should conduct hold walking sticks to assistance them balance.

But this was non the solely difficulty. Right before entering the Valley at that spot is a modest span made of joined Tin sheets . The H2O lashes against the sheets in addition to it seems similar it'll autumn apart whatever moment.

But the valley is but awesome. There are rattling few words to clit it. Hundreds in addition to thousands of diverseness of flowers. The grass is hence light-green , the colors are hence vibrant that it seems to go the garden inward heaven.

We spent a lot of fourth dimension inward the valley in addition to i tin run five to half dozen kms within the valley in addition to conduct hold a visual care for of a lifetime.

There are no shops here, no mules , no noise, precisely the mild hum of the river in addition to the breeze. Within a few hours nosotros saw few to a greater extent than tourists in addition to photographers. Needless to tell everyone was awestruck.

Just around lunchtime nosotros bid cheerio to Valley of Flowers in addition to started our provide to Ghangria.

The provide to Ghangria was brusque in addition to swift. People around outpaced i another. Perhaps it was the fun that the trek was over. After having a tardily luncheon inward Ghangria nosotros started off towards Govind Ghat.

Initially nosotros idea that precisely similar the Valley of Flowers nosotros volition brand this swiftly. But that was non to be. This route is to a greater extent than oftentimes than non mild, but takes time.

It was around flush when nosotros reached Govind Ghat. Singhji was ready amongst the car, I had a few huge blisters ( My shoe came off inward the in conclusion five kms. I tried to create out amongst that in addition to that resulted inward monster blisters. Must acquit quickfix )

When nosotros reached Joshimath it was already dark. For the outset fourth dimension inward in conclusion three days nosotros took a proper bath.

DAY seven : Josimath in addition to Auli in addition to dorsum to Joshimath

We were supposed to start dorsum from Joshimath today. But at that spot was a huge landslide when nosotros were inward Hemkund that cutting off Joshimath from Rudraprayag inward three places.
So nosotros decided to bask the twenty-four hours inward Auli.

Auli is famous for skiing inward winter. There is a ropeway from Joshimath to Auli. There are several dissimilar trek routes that start from this point.

Auli is rattling beautiful house in addition to i tin run across the mighty mountains if the sky clears up.

DAY 8 Joshimath --> Rishikesh --> New Delhi ( yesteryear bus)

This was a busy day. With incoming word that the roads volition clear today all vehicles were on route in addition to all hotels were empty. Soon nosotros discovered that it volition accept several to a greater extent than hours to clear the road. Everyone was waiting on the route piece our bully route was finally done. Vehicles were allowed to ply i at a fourth dimension , in addition to finally later a long facial expression nosotros crossed the hurdles. The jam spread across several kms , but drivers were hence careful in addition to reasonable ,never i time did it consequence inward whatever deadlock.

It was flush when nosotros reached Rishikesh. Singhji did non desire to drive later approximately house maxim it was getting also dark. We somehow convinced him amongst approximately verbalize in addition to cash in addition to finally amongst a Rs1000 extra he delivered.

Since nosotros already missed the prepare at Haridwar , nosotros took a double-decker at Rishikesh itself in addition to started off for Delhi. That was i of the most horrible double-decker journeys I e'er had. Somehow nosotros reached Delhi at midnight in addition to went to Kalibari( rooms were booked earlier)

DAY ix Finally 'New Delhi' --> 'Bangalore'

Kalibari is a wonderful place. The nutrient is excellent in addition to hence is the ambiance. We roamed around the house a petty in addition to presently it was fourth dimension to grab the flying dorsum to Bangalore.
