Wanderers 3rd Trip. This time it was Kalsi. Tavera was the vehicle of the wanderers and this time the cab came on time unlike Rishikesh Trip.

Amit Gupta (2) made all the arrangments for the cab, Santosh made arrangements for the accommodation and Sanjukta and I, as usual, were following up with people.

Kakan could not be a part of this trip because she was down with viral and Santosh all the time was saying, “keep me as a last minute add-on”. Ramit was in a fix, “kya karu, kaha jao, but after lot of persuasion and Amit Gupta (1) some secret magic words, Ramit finally joined us. Though we had promised Ramit that we would take good care of him and would make sure that he enjoys the trip.

So, Amit Gupta (2) Chhota Amit as we now call him, got picked up 1st then was Sanjukta, Santosh, me, Amit Gupta (1) NOIDA wale, Deepak, Aneesha and then Ramit. NOIDAale Amitji had come back from Saudi Arabia the same day and everyone was looking forward to his Jack Daniel that he promised to share with all of us. I got Coke for everyone and Tambola too as I badly wanted to gamble and make some money however, could not make any as no one played any Tambola 😦

I would write a looooong post mentioning about the beauty of the place that we visisted as one would have to personaly visit the place to experience how it is like to be close to nature, to be driving through pine covered serpentile hilly roads with a groups of crazy friends cracking silly jokes and laughing at every thing. How it is like to walk through lush green meadows, sorrounded by herd of sheep and young local girls sitting on a rock along the main road.

For this I am giving the Flickr links of my fellow Letsgoers….in the mean time while you click on the link you can also read the informative piece that Aneesha has sent on Chakrata.

Our stay was at Dak Patthar, at a GMVN Guest Hosue. We initailly tried Asan Barrage for its cottages but since it was booked we stayed at Dak Pathar, another beautiful place close to the River Yamuna.

The breakfast, the 1st day was chhole Puri, Bread Omlette in the Guest House, lunch was at a local dhaba, dinner again was in the guest hosue. The next day breakfast was Asan Barrage, Parantha, bread Omllette, lunch was at Poanta Saheb Gurudwara and dinner was at a high way resturant, forgotten the name though. In between snacking were on all the time with regular rounds of chai, pakora, vodka, etc etc….

To sum it up all, it was a great fun, and Ramit and I had extra doze of fun as we also got to enjoy the rains early in the morning.

Thoda jhagda, thodi ladai..lots of masti..lots of fun…that is what this trip was all about.
Being close to nature and being with friends.
