15th sept 2008: 7:30AM (Trek Day-1) Pankaj came to Hathkoti with booked Jeep and we loaded our gear and started off first to Rohru for breakfast at Mayfair Restaurant there.
At 9:30 AM we continued along the Pabbar river to Chirgaon (where we stopped for Negi's to buy some rations) and then along a kutcha road to Dhamdawadi and then to Bhatwari Nalla (just below Tangnu village). Here we got off the jeep and were met by a bunch of Porters. We started our trek from here at 11:50AM and headed for Janglikh.
Carpet of pink wildflowers on Trail to Janglikh, from Tungnu
The trail was first a few Kms on the kutcha road and then we went downhill on a steep trail, through beautiful meadows, with carpets of pink wildflowers, and amany fruit trees; to cross a bridge over a rushing stream and then a steep climb to Janglikh village, at 2900M, arriving at 3:00PM.
We reached the Janglikh school playground around the the school break time and so there were whole bunch of kids there. Pankaj & Maunish fixed up with the School Master for us to stay the night in one of the classrooms; to avoid pitching the tents. We then climbed upto Pankaj's home for a "local" lunch of buck-wheat Rotis, a green leafy veggetable and spicy Pudhina chutney. Rest of the day relaxed in school balcony and at nighty a full moon came up from behind the mountains, bathing the school balcony in bright moonlight, as we sat dicussing our trek plans.
