Sandakphu – Day2: Kopidana To Tumling

Posted: February 14, 2022 in Sandakphu

As we started our trek I was skeptical about walking for miles. Thanks to COVID I wasnt in good shape

Few kilometers and I was thinking “No I cant do it”. I was drained physically and exhausted mentally.

Rather than sitting and cribbing about it, I started coming up with a strategy. Energy bars, candies, quick breaks, water and self motivation kept me going. As I walked, enjoying the trail, wild flowers, beautiful mountains I realized how I missed the outdoor in last 2 years.

Our Trek guide. My non-stop questions, talks never made him lose his cool. He is very down to earth
That’s my trek-mates. 2 couples
Perfect Christmas Tree
Sleeping Buddha 🙂

As we were approaching the check post our trek guide told us not to click any pics and behave ourself

High on energy I said to to the army guy “Good morning sir, how are you?”

No pleasant smile or grin, he scanned us and said “Where you guys are from?”

Still pumping on energy I said “Bangalore” while other’s whispered “Mumbai”, “Pune”.

Without taking much time he said “Bangalore lady take out your ID card”

That’s that, last time I mentioned Bangalore 🙂

Break to catch my breath
Road signs were nice but couldnt beat Leh road signs
