Day 3: Julota to Pokorla
We will trek towards the green meadows covered with a white carpet of soft snow powder ,the snow could be 2.5 feet ,little evergreen streams of water play hide and seek under the snow and the land, the blue skies with trees getting shorter as we gain altitude can be vividly observed.The hike is gentle yet demanding.
No human habitation for miles altogether only the chirping of birds can be heard though it’s difficult to spot them.The oak laden landscape suddenly opens up to a beautiful meadow from where kedarkhantha peak suddenly emerges as we reach Pokorla.
The evening is spent sipping soups & tea, while the sun sets in the west and paints the sky in so many different hues.Different ranges and peaks like Ranglana,Bandarpooch,Swargarohani lie in all directions like jewels scattered in the glistening sky.
The camp will provide hot lunch and dinner, respectively,after which will do group games, folk stories by trek leaders and star gazing. An early evening is expected as we need to wake up quite early for the summit the next morning.
