Amazing story.. superb pics..
Perfect composition bhaiTrek day 3
Third day challenging climb brought a rise in altitude from 2100m to 3200m+. In 12 kms the trail took us from subtropical jungle to open grazing alps, where stunted juniper and straggling silver birch formed the only surviving woodland. It didn't rain though. For the first time, we got a glimpse of snow peak on the easy side, i.e Partial view of Rajrambha peak. As usual, porters were slow and we reached the campsite at 1:30pm and slept under open skies at Khiltam.
Altitude gain : 1100m,
Distance : 12kms+
Grade : Moderate
From : Lungriani to Khiltam.
The terrain of the walk for the whole day, is something like this as seen in the photo.

The place was not flat and we had rough sleep in the tents. At the same time, next morning few people saw mama bear and her cub on the opposite hill. But before we could take out our camera from the bag with sleepy eyes, they had vanished.
