The Goechala Trek is basically a walk through the beautiful Khangchendzonga National Park, all the way to near the base of the mountain itself. It’s 10 days of pure, unadulterated beauty!
There are a lot of things I have learned from the treks that I have gone for and I always had the intention of penning them but somehow I never got around to it. Now that I finally have, here are some of the lessons I have learned from all my treks.
The first trek that I ever went for was the Roopkund Trek in Uttarakhand. It starts from 7,000 ft above sea level and goes all the way up about 16,000 ft. This is the account of my experience of that trek. An awesome way to step into the world of trekking, if you ask me.
Even though my first post was a rant against the Chadar trek, it is still a cherished memory. What follows is my account of the trek and the story of how we got stuck and an eventual ‘escape’ from the trek. Its not as dramatic as it sounds but it is still a good read!
