Yeh pahad chadhna tumhare liye shayad trek hoga pr mere liye nasha hai nasha"
Yesterday we targeted for a hike from Gulaba(9000ft) to summit Brighu Lake(14500ft). The major challenge that awaited us was to finish this trek in a day where most of the trekkers prefer to reach the pinnacle in 2-3 days.So this definitely demanded us to maintain our pace. Another problem confronted us when we were supposed to reach in a cab to Gulaba(base of our trek) from our camp site. We encountered a heavy grid lock traffic on our way so unfortunately had to leave the cab and started our trek 6kms before from Gulaba(around 8500ft). We knew this would definitely add a toil but it didn't sheer our tempo. We started our trek at 6:30am sharp, 6kms before the base of Brighu lake trek. As per the instructions of our local guide, we did try to keep up our momentum. It came with taking mini breaks. Our first big break for(10mins) was at gorge around 9am where we refreshed ourselves. Now here comes a thrill!!!As we began descending we had to cross river to reach other hill. It was pretty tough because the terrain was quite uneven and had to manage your body weight balance by taking baby steps. Once we made it through the river, we geared ourselves for ascend. Roughly after 1.5 hrs of our ascend, we took 10 mins halt. At this point, fresh stream was flowing so we filled the bottles with fresh mineral water available in abundance over there. We reenergized the body and started to climb uphill. I must say as enjoyable the hike is, it definitely can be a serious hardwork. After hours of hiking, I was draining out. Well not physically but mentally, just because I had to breathe heavily to keep myself going. It reminded me of a song "yeh kahan aa gaye hum"😂 and I started singing aloud. As we kept moving forward, our rate of ascending was decreasing but pushed ourselves to maintain consistent speed as we needed to reach Brighu Lake and back to base of trek- Gulaba.
