50 Days as a Higher camp leader with YHAI for their epic Chanderkhani pass trek ,People ,young ,old,men and women happened to pass by my camp after facing the Chanderkhani pass challenge.

Some kept walking even after their friends gave up and returned. All had stretched their personal physical limits.And they still kept walking.
We camp leaders are supposed to encourage them on the last part of their trek.Truth be told it was simply heart touching inspiration for me, to welcome 50 trekkers for 40 days straight.Why was it inspiring? These 50 faces,had faced steep Himalayan climbs,slippery snow,hunger and they did it after waking up at 2 am and for 12 grueling hours straight!

|Sparkling Manali night View I looked at this view daily, but never really got over the oh my god it’s so beautiful feeling|
There were many silent precious moments I witnessed like…
When a friend was helping her fellow trekker step by step who had sprained her leg and was finding each step hard.Her friend stayed faithfully by her side for the entire trek.Would I do the same? I don’t know,but will surely remember her face again, if it happens to me.

A 65 year old man passed through my camp cheerfully, whereas his companions,people half his age were huffing and puffing,dramatically .He carried his backpack all by himself,and in repeatedly n a dignified polite refused help offered to him,to carry his backpack.
