Our second day finished at 3800m and the temperature at night was definitely dropping. The weather was good with clear blue skies and sunshine. We had a guide, Avinash, a cook, Shyam, a cooks assistance Sanjay, and 3 horsemen. Each night the company and dining tent would be put up, and then 4 tents, 1 for each of us, and 1 for the Liason Officer, Zed.
There is lots of wild life, between the monkeys, the cows, the goats, the sheep, the horses, and the various birds, there is always something to catch your attention.
We reached Basecamp on the afternoon of the 10th October. It is located at 4200m next to a small lake surrounded by mountains. Down the valley we can look towards Manali, and up the valley Deo Tibba looks down on us.
