Milam Trek: 

A 11-day trek from Munsiyari to Milam Glacier. 

Milam, Uttarakhand

Day-0 ....  14/05/07 .... Reaching Munsiary by bus

 Our bus stops at Kalamuni Kali  Temple (at height of  2700M)... this is a regular stop for all jeeps & buses going to & fro Munsiary ... the drivers and passengers go inside and offer a quick prayer here.

On 13th May 2007 evening my regular guide-porter, Debu met me at the Bageshwar KMVN-TRC. He had brought along an assistant, Balwant... and also sleeping bags, a stove, kerosene and provisions for cooking etc. as he felt we may not get hotel food everywhere, this early in season. We may get to stay in PWD Resthouses and local Home-stays, so no need to carry tent.

On 14th May 07, we three got on to Delhi-Munsiary bus at 9:30am at Bageshwar. Arrived in Munsiary late evening at 6:15pm and checked into Pandey Lodge (Ok Room, Rs 200/- pre-season rate) near the bus-stand.

On 15th May 2007, Debu went to SDM-Munisary office with my hand-written "trek application" letter, got it endorsed for 12 days trek till Milam Glacier and also had it "endorsed" at the ITBP check-post in Munisary. These formalities are a must for all trekkers. Else one may be refused entry at the ITBP checkposts along the trail ....  at Budgiar, Railkot and Milam. 

Finally at 11:00am, we departed, by a Share Jeep descending down into Gori Ganga valley to a place called Selapani; from where the trekking trail actually starts.
