Every second and even minute is unforgettable during this beautiful winter trek. Most of us have DSLRs and few of them have point n shot cameras as their shooting gears for the event. Every morning and evening of this trek is beautiful with picturesque mountains around the valley. Cameras is most busy gears of this beautiful journey and all of us wanted to store these memories in their boxes forever.
After beautiful day at valley, all of us had good overnight sleep. Few people in this group had habit of playing cards, Dumb charades and other time pass games late night but i avoided these fun activities because of weather conditions. Prepared to sleep so early every day and make sure i am fit enough till the last day to finish this beautiful journey.
