Yeah we are at the starting point. Wishing a happy 25 kms uphill trek to be covered in some 6-7 hours.
The peak is somewhere there.
Here we go.
A long Way to go.
Crossing the streams in the way.
The stream behind the last village …. a nice spot to refresh yourself.
A bath in the stream/waterfall is a bliss.
I m a foodie.
Here the road ends. Make your own way.
one man down!
tired faces….. still a lot to go.
Relaxing on the way.
the last view we could see before light goes off at the base village…. still no view of the peak.
The first cyclonic showers 😀
The thousand year old temples. Said to be of the time of pandavas.
the view from the ashram.
The sacred pool.
Only source of water in two days.
majestic clouds near the final accent to the top.
at last the peak 😀
Team 1 at the top.
Amid the cyclonic clouds at the top.
Team 2 captures the top.
The bheem temple at the very top.

Team 2 …. “the pandavas”
posing at the shoulder of the peak.
We are in the heavens… above all the clouds.
“With arms wide open, under the cloud cover,
Welcome to this place, I’ll show you everything.”
Team 2 with the fellow swamis.
