We were on our day excursion to Chandranahan Lake that day. Although the lake was predicted to be frozen, it would be a good warm-up for the summit day, we were told. So I started to walk with my walking stick in hand, as I crossed huge areas of green valleys, an enormous stretch of rocky terrain and expanse of snowy fields. Surrounded by snow capped mountains on all sides, I stood for a little while in front of one - trying to take it all in - as the others moved towards the lake.
It is then this question struck me, why is Buran Ghati known to be an underrated trek?
In all honesty, it was what they call a mixed feeling, because I sort of was glad that it hasn’t yet become another Roopkund but on the other hand, I was quite surprised at how I’ve never seen this trek fit in those bulletin lists of best/famous treks in India.
As I switched on my Osmo Action and placed it on one of the rocks to capture the moving clouds move faster on screen experience to a trekker that one would ideally desire from a trek.
We’ve trekked through wheat fields and stone housed villages, moving to dense oak and pine forests, under shady trees jumping across streams once in a while. Further we’ve traipsed through open grasslands, crossed patches of rocky boulders followed by hiking on huge stretches of snow. Often we would chance upon waterfalls and glacial valleys on our way and sometimes even found the Pabbar river flowing alongside our trails. We camped on pristine green valleys with streams and stars for company and frequently found butterflies visiting us during the day. Further, climbing a summit of 15000 feet, the adventure didn’t quite end there. We rappelled down a hundred feet snow wall and further slided and galloped down to the !
