In the morning, view outside our tents was spectacular. We saw snow capped Mountains all around , took some pics, but after 15-20 Min Mist covered the valley and mountains were not visible. We were supposed to start early , but got late, we finished our breakfast by 8:30AM and started walking towards Gidara.
From Dayara one black dog started walking with us , we thought it will go away after sometime but it remained with us till the end of trek. The Dog was too hairy, and resembled a bear , got scared of him twice, he also had a bad habit of crossing the path when there was a difficult climb or narrow path.
While on the trek an idea popped up that we should also visit “Dodital” ( Lord Ganeshji Birthplace ). Dodital situated at a distance of 30 km from Dayara Bugyal, is also popular among tourists. Going there meant an extension of 2 More days , which we could not afford. Hence all agreed to keep walking towards Gidara.Read More
