Trekking in the Himalayas

Updated: Jun 29, 2020

Memories of my trekking adventures in the Himalayas

Trekking in the Himalayas the home to the highest peak in the world "Mt. Everest" the dream of every mountaineer, is a soul searching experience.

Young & Fit

When you are young, fit and full of youthful energy, you are scared of nothing, so was I. Fresh out of the University with a degree in Agriculture & Animal Husbandry aiming to build my career in farming, the hard physical work enticed me. I was brought up in a small town of Bijnor in the Gangetic plains (The plains of mighty river 'Ganga') close to the foothills of Himalayas near the Jim Corbett National Park (Our University G.B. Pant University of Agriculture & Technology was only 2 hours away from the park).

When I was in Intermediate, from the roof top of our house in Bijnor snow covered peaks of Himalayas were visible on most clear mornings and man that was the time me and my friends would look at each other but knew the families would not allow us to venture their on our own.The forests were full of predators and wild elephants.

Years later, prepared to take on the real world with family's confidence in us, it was time to make our dreams come true, so we started working on it. Without money nothing moves and we did not want to bother our families so we formed a trekking club "Pradakshina"( The action of walking clockwise round a deity as a mark of respect.) 12 young lads to start with.

First behemoth task was to collect some donations (Something new in our town for that kind of cause), but thanks to all the businesses and some understanding folks that pitched in , we had barely enough to look forward to our first trek.
