Sandakphu – A trek to the gates of shangri-la – Day 0

Sandakphu, is the world famous trekking paradise, from where you can enjoy the clear views of Himalayan Giants Like Mount Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lothse, Nuptse, Makalu, Janu, Pandim, Chomolhori and many more upto Nepal & Sikkim.

The trek was organized by YHAI West Bengal and myself and shashi had registered for the trek.

We reached darjeeling around 5 in the evening, and began to walk towards yhai base camp by asking directions. This was to be our acclimatization walk as the trek would start the next day.

Reaching the base camp at 6 in the evening we submitted the admit cards and we were given a room to put our luggage. A self introduction and orientation programme followed thereafter where we got to know our batch mates and we were briefed on what can be done and not done during the trek. Lunch was followed soon after and we hit the sack eagerly waiting for the next day to dawn and for the trek to start
