Day in brief:

By end of Day 3 all of us clearly knows where is our journey heading too. Its heavy snowfall on Monday halted our journey till Osla village. Team is big in number with 24, Heavy snow at further campsite made our trek crew to halt our journey till Osla. Organizers decided to spend Day 4 on exploring around Osla village and trek till halfway to the next campsite then get back to Osla village. Finally Day 4 turned out to be buffer day of Har Ki Dun winter trek.
As usual, all of us got up around 6:30 AM one by one and freshen up. Had morning tea, followed by breakfast and packed lunch. Time is not issue because this one is become buffer day of the trek with lot of time in store. All of us enjoyed beautiful morning at Osla home stay.
