Thanks Yogesh! It was a 5 hour drive to the flag-off point, hence i had to leave atleast 7hrs before the event starts.

Yes it was indeed a very spectacular trail. Initially three river crossings were planned but due to paucity of time we could only complete one. Attaching some more pictures enjoy!!!!
