DAY 1 – Trek to Uttari Beta
We will be leaving for this one day trek early in the morning, so make sure to catch up on your sleep a night before. As soon as we reach the base of the trek, which is a small village, we will be embarking on a journey that you will not ever forget.
After walking for a good amount of time, you will come across a glorious fort that will immediately transport you to another world altogether. Walk through the walls of this fort to come across the seen doors of stone.
When you pass these doors, you will come to the temple of Shankareswar. This temple is right at the top and is also the middle point of the trek. Make sure to take in the beautiful view at the top as it is a view that is unlike any other that you have seen before. We will have our lunch at this location, so that you can experience the complete serenity that one only gets when they are totally away from civilization.
After absorbing the beauty at the top of the hill, make your way towards the jungle cave that will have you captivated by its entire beauty. Just for a moment, you will forget what it is like to be a part of civilization as you will become a part of another world altogether.
The trail will end when you come across a huge grassland at the top of the hill, which will be surrounded by huge boulders. We will observe the stunning sunset at this location, with only green grass, clear blue skies and dark grey boulders for our company. Make sure to remember this moment for as long as you can, as it will remind you of the absolute peace you felt at that moment.
Following the gorgeous sunset, we will begin our descent back to the base camp. Make sure to tread carefully in the dark, while being enchanted by the beauty of a hill at night.
