After a grueling 4000 ft climb the third day of the trek was an easy 3 km stretch. However the weather was changing rapidly so we had to hurry up. We had to reach the next camp before it started raining.
The weather was good in the morning and we started off on the trek after the usual rounds of oximeter reading, breakfast, headcount and dry ration distribution. I was doing pretty good with the oximeter reading, though drinking a lot of water was a pain.
Immediately after the camp was a lake and there were temples by it. The story behind them is quite interesting.
Shiva and Parvati got married at this place. There was a demon living here who used to fight with a goat/sheep . The lake was created because of the footsteps of them while they were fighting.
It is also said that Brahma created the Vedas here.
The trek was a cake walk compared to what we had been through the past two days. However due to rains this particular camp site was quite muddy and probably the worst we endured in the entire trek.
When the weather was good and clear we could see snow capped peaks and the Kalu Vinayak trail we were supposed to take the next day to Bhagwabasa was also partially covered in snow. I was very hopeful of seeing more snow and probably trekking in snow.
