My first ever trek in North India! and what better place than Mcleodganj to begin with. I went there with few friends of mine I met on Twitter. It was a beautiful experience, trekking amidst constant rains and greenery all around. My main purpose however was to see and feel snow although I failed at doing since I was already exhausted by the time I reached Snowline.

There is always a next time.

So we left Delhi from Majnu Ka Tilla at 6:30pm and reached Mcleodganj the next day at 6am.
