Yes medical certificates are required before begining the trek. But for this particular trek, even if you moderately fit, you will do just fine. You just need to have the will to do it.

Simply amazing...deky....I can't thank you enough for writing such a beautiful trekalogue with pictures of breath-taking himalayan beauty. I have been feeling home sick lately (I live in auss) and your trekalogue has eased off the pain (or added fuel to the fire actually..lol). Now I strongly feel like going on a similar trek on my next visit to India but then I need to schedule a holiday in summer time....

It was quite a scintillating experience going through your narrative and photographs. Another wonderful journey comes to an end.

Going through this log reminded me of a deeply thoughtful line by Hunter S. Thompson, edited a bit by me to stay in context of the log.

"And that, I think, was the handle - that sense of inevitable victory over the forces of body and nature. Our energy would simply prevail. We had all the momentum; we were riding the crest of a high and beautiful wave. So now you can go up on a steep mountain in Kullu valley and look west, and with the right kind of eyes you can see the snowline - that place where the trek ended and we rolled back."

its so sad that all good things have to come to an end, i wished that this travelogue continued for a few more days.

Thanks Dhiraj, for daily dose of mesmerizing pictures and crisp narration to bring some more colors to our usual and boring lives.

Awesome, will wait for your next travelogue.

cheers

Next destiantion is a family trip to Leh starting 23rd July. Yippeeee:P

But I have been offered a custom made trek to Mt. Everest base camp via Nepal. But that is possible only if I can gather enough participants for it. It will be an expensive affair, but definitely a trek of the life time. Lets see how the above trek works out.

Wow, chocolate bar in one hand and ice-cream in the other! And please pardon me for feeling a bit jealous bro. I am turning so green right now!

Wish you a fantabulous journey to either of the places.

Har Ki Dun trek is in Uttaranchal and through Chakrata. Its different from the Sarahan-Sangla trek which is ofcourse in Himachal. Though there is one trek through Chanshal and Dodra Kawar area which goes on to Har Ki Dun.
