After spending a wonderful night, woke up to the pleasant sounds of birds chirping and the river.
We left back for Mattan at around 9:30 am.

Not having planned anything for the day and I was feeling too lazy to go out. Had a breakfast of typical Kashmiri tandoori bread with butter and tea. At around noon, we (my cousin and I) thought instead of lazying around the house, it is better to go out, but had no particular destination on the mind. We took my motorcycle as we had not thought of going anywhere far. Some 5-6 kms from home, my cousin jokingly suggested that we should ride to Sinthan Top. This stuck with me and I agreed with the idea.

Sinthan Top is a remarkably beautiful place, and I have been to it a couple of time before. Many riders now prefer this route to Ladakh after coming from Sach Pass.

The route is beautiful with smooth road and less traffic.

As we rode up the Pass, the amount of snow on the road sides increased as well.

A few kilometres before the Top, there had been an avalanche sometime earlier in the day and the road was closed. Because of this, we could reach the Top, but the scenery till here was was more than enough.

Many selfies and photos later, it was time to ride back. We didn't take more photos after this and solely enjoyed the homeward ride.
Reached home in the evening and made plans on what to do the next day as I had to leave back for Jammu a day later.
