The elevation of the Gulaba , the starting point of the trek, is around about 2800 metres, and it was risky to reach the 4300 metres in single day hike, but I was unaware of the dangers.
Reaching Gulaba - the start of the trek:
Morning Sun-Shine mixing White, Green and Golden:
No trees- only pastures and shrubs:
On the way along with some temporary Gaddi settlements, we saw their animals grazing here and there, mostly cows and one herd of horses, a rare sight indeed on the planes.
Acute Mountain Sickness:
I feared if some of them could also have been suffering from the altitude sickness, yet they were at less risk because the time they had for acclimatization while they camped at different spots along the rising altitude. They made a slow ascent and therefore lowered risk of altitude sickness.
Snow, Blow and Lake:
Unconscious or Conscious??
Aayush, which one I don't remember.
