Few pictures of Demul Home stay:
It was continuous steep ascent in the beginning of the trek. After 45 minutes of continuous steep ascent, reached open space.
Relaxed for half an hour and done sight seeing. It was million worth spending time here and breathtaking landscapes gave us sigh of satisfaction that we did right choice by trekking these villages.
On the way, I met 2 children who roaming around the valley with one black cow. They gave me one precious thing (Stone). I kept that with me :).
Yak’s all over the valley:
It’s yak’s all over the valley and we got to see around 20 to 30 yak’s. Took plenty of photos. Here are the few pics:
Finally, it was jeep trail which took us to Comic village. Jeep trail is very long and never ending. It was nearly 8 Kms. of jeep trail on which we walked. Myself, Deepak and Achintya lagging way behind.
Relaxed for half an hour, just before reaching the Comic village. We can see breathtaking view of Comic village with backdrop of Himalayan range of hills.
Reached Comic village around 3:00 PM. Had visit to Tangyud Monastery and left for Kaza on Tata sumo.
