Howdy, my fellow travellers and my readers.

It is a great deal to write about a trip which was completed ages ago, but if it was some unforgettable trip then you would definitely want to write it. So here I am writing about my first trip to the Himalayan ranges.

I was merely 11 years old when I went to uttrakhand and Himalayan ranges for the very first time. I was too excited to experience the feel; the vibe it spreads out. And over that my major destinations were Kedarnath, Badrinath, Gangotri, Yamanotri which are popularly known as Chota chardham. These are the holy places of India which every traveller wishes to visit. I was only 6th standard when I could get this opportunity to trek to these destinations and also get a chance to gaze at the Kanchenjunga (the highest peak of India) for the first time. It was massive experience for me.

It is literally a 9-year-old travel history and I only have partial information and only some of the pictures of the trip. But I will try my best to bring out the whole story as much as possible.

So, I was travelling with friends of my father, late Mr. sardesai, lokesh patil and his daughter Shreya patil. It was may be from 12/05/2011 to 25/05/2011.  We covered so many places within uttrakhand like

  • Dehradun
  • Musoorie
  • Kedarnath
  • Tungnath
  • Badrinath
  • Mana, the last village of India
  • Yamunotri
  • Gangotri
  • Rishikesh
  • Haridwar
  • And some more smaller places which were nearer to our destinations.

We witnessed the gigantic crowd over the banks of river ganga in haridwar for ganga aarti, witnessed the natural beauty when two mountains form a valley, witnessed the local citizens struggling for their daily bread and butter, witnessed the wonder of faith as even 80-90 years old were climbing to the peak to get a peek of lord kedar. I was astonished.

Total distance travelled – 1,484 kms (Dehradun to Dehradun)

I would be sharing this blog too; in the form of weekly episodes, stay tuned, I am sure you will enjoy reading this.
