MUKESH VERMA- CHANDIGARH
It was December and i had not gone for a trek for a long time. i called some of my friends for the same but none was interested in a trek in "So cold".
Anyway i decided to go solo as usual. by then my younger son Mridul Verma, who is studying in Punjabi University Patiala and stays there in hostel came over. he was having some days off due to Christmas holidays.
I decided to take in along as he is also a trek maniac and had done some couple of treks with me and his friends.
We zeroed upon Dodital lake in Uttranchal. it was on my wish list for a long time. last time when i planned to do it solo, our legendary adventurist Tilak Soni has advised to take some local person along. so though this time we were not having much stuff with us, but still we were carrying our tent, sleeping bags and eatables so we decided to take one porter cum guide along.
i got phone no of Mr Balwir Panwar from BCMT and contacted him. he was so glad to have some business. he was already having a group of some Bengali trekkers on the same dates, so he planned to meet us in Uttarkashi.
as scheduled we both father and son took a bus from Chandigarh to Rishikesh in night and reached Rishikesh at early morning at 2.00 am.
it was damn cold there, the first bus to Uttarkashi was on 4.00am, so we had to wait there.
we reached Uttarkashi on 11.00 am. Balwir was waiting us. after some time and lunch, we took a taxi to sangamchatti and then trekked to Bebra.
Balwir had already called some local hotel owner to Bebra and we didnt had to pitch our tents. actually we didnt had to pitch tent anywhere and stayed in hotel. as Balbir had called local hotel owner at Dodital even, and we decided to stay there in .
here are some photos till bebra.

MUKESH VERMA- CHANDIGARH
Next day we got up early in the morning. i went to a near by rivulet. the scenery of morning rising sun was marvelous here. i freshened up from morning rituals and then went here and there for morning photography. then i came back to hotel. my son Mridul was awake now and after brushing his teeth he also got ready. then after a sumptuous breakfast we started our trek to Dodital.
it was to be a long trek today. it snowed in the night so the trek from Bebra was covered with snow. we were expecting to be lot of snow enroute as if it was snow in Bebra, naturally it would be all white out till Dodital.
as expected there was chill in the wind but after some time, the sun came up and it warmed the weather a bit. also now we were trekking on the mountain face, facing the sun, so the snow was very less on the face.
we reached Manjhi by noon.
Here are some photos from Bebra to Manjhi.
