I woke up around 5:30 am and got fresh in a jiffy. As I mentioned previously, I was staying in a hall, which cost me around 100 bucks per night. I'm not very choosy when it comes to accommodation, as long as there's hygiene, I'm mostly fine with anything.
However, I soon realised that there was no washroom area and you had to cross the road for a hand pump and brush your teeth. So the day started with adventures I had not bargained my way into. Around 6 am, I came back and had my dose of chai to get me geared up for the day and called up my guide.
So, on Day 2, we had planned on leaving Sonapragayag (where I had stayed the night) and reach Triyuginarayan which is around 13-14 kms away. The road in this journey wasn't well built and it took us about an hour to cover the distance. When we reached Triyuginarayan, my guide took me to a room to put my bags at and we were planning on trekking to Maggu from there.
I met my Instagram friend who had gone through the effort of getting me in touch with my guide and had a chat with him. I met a couple looking for their wedding spot in the place. I also met a person who knew me through a Facebook travel page and we had a heartwarming chat.
While I was having lunch in Triyuginarayan, with a beautiful view of the Kedarnath peak and misty hills as a canvas in front of me - I spotted the celebrations of a Pahadi wedding nearby.
As my luck goes, women from that wedding came to where I was having my lunch to have their pictures clicked, and there they spotted me already in the process with a DSLR in my hand!
What followed was quite obviously a thirty minute photo session, where they gave their best poses and I only followed their orders. We chatted, had fun, they showed me their pahadi dance and afterwards I retreated to my room to charge my phone and camera.
