We completed our trek of 5 days from Batal to Baralacha as plan even with bad weather. It was a true adventure trek, everyday there was new challenging experience. An unforgettable journey
Trek to Leh via Lahul-Spiti Jul2006
Finally we were team of 10 trek enthusiast who dared to trek on the high altitude of thin air.
I, Sayak and Tony, we three were from Microsoft and seven of our other team members were from different software company in Bangalore & Delhi.
I build my entire team for this trek through MS- Adventure club and BMC (Bangalore Mountaineering Club). Apart form Tony ( my gym pal) I did not know any one of my team members prior to six months.
Everything was going on the net and emails, right from collecting information about best route for trek in that range, searching and hiring guide, bookings of tickets, hotels, vehicles etc, communication with all team members, till we met just 15 days before the departure. It took me around 5 months to plan everything and prepare a confident team. A team to trek for 8 to 12 hours a day that too in tough cold terrain for 5 days in bad weather and less oxygen, with limited food, water , medicine supply and zero medical or emergency facilities.
We all started as planed on the same route (attached itinerary, trek map), on 27th July and our journey ended on 8th August, for some of us who did not fly back from Leh to Delhi it ended on 10th August.
We completed our trek of 5 days from Batal to Baralacha as plan even with bad weather. It was a true adventure trek, everyday there was new challenging experience.
An unforgettable journey, a memory which will last forever. I am writing a detailed blog, it’s taking bit time; I will share the same once it is complete.
