I along with my friend Kaushik started for a ride we were not sure we will be able to complete or not on time. we started after finishing our shifts from the office at the wee hrs of 28th may,2011. the trip started from gurgaon at 4.30 am. We followed the route from from ghaziabad to modinagar and reached meerut at 6.30 am, we stopped at the Dhaba just after the toll gate of meerut. We had a light breakfast at started again from there and continued our journey.We reached roorkee at 11.30 am and freshened up on the road with a nbottle of cold water and did not stop anywhere and reached haridwar by 12noon and rishikesh by 1pm.
The major journey started once we crossed the shivpuri and we were surrounded by montains. this was my first trip to the mountains and I was not aware of the hardships in store. we kept on moving abd reached Byasi(28kms from rishikesh) at 1.45pm. We then had a quick lunch and continued our journey and crosed devprayag, srinagar and reached rudraprayag at 6.30pm. We were told that traveling after 8pm is not allowed so we took a guest house and stopped there for the night stay.
Next day on the 29th May,2011 we started at 7am in the good weather and reached Karnaprayag and continued to Chamouli and Pipal Koti and reached Pipal Koti at 10.30am, had a breakfast and we headed towards Joshi Math and reached there at 2pm. I wanted to proceed further to badrinath, but kaushil said we should go to Auli and enjoy the evening there, so turned toward Auli and after climbing to the ht of 10000ft we reached Auli. After reachihn Auli we found the first site of snow capped mountains, and then came the sound of YESSSSSS, THAT”S IT> Finally we had made it.
WHAT A FEELING> WE were highly excited.and I started running towrds the mountains in joy…. #WWWWWAAAAOOOOO.Bye god, That was just a dream come true for me….
We spent the nite there and woke up early morning on the 30th, May 2011 to come down and proceed to badrinath, NOW WE WERE AGAIN FRESHENED and after the looks of the snow capped mountains we were on top of the world..
Then we reached badrinath at 1pm and spent some time there and took a dip in the tapt kund, I apologized to god as the time was short and we could not wait for the darshans so we left from there to MANA the last Indian village on the INDO-TIBET BORDER.
We spend some time at the place which is the origin of SARASWATI RIVER and then turned back to the destiantion DELHI….
