You’ll encounter a motorable road crossing after 15 minutes into the trek and take the trail going ascending up straight ahead of you. After encountering the similar crossing twice, you come across the first water source, a cemented reservoir.
The trail has another two water sources ahead before you reach an entry gate to the forest checkpost. The trail is steep and rocky stating from this point and goes into the forest. 20 t0 30 minutes into the trail, you will be able to see the campsite at Kathian. We have our lunch and an informative survival skill enhancing session awaits us where we will learn the details of pitching our own tents anywhere and a few experiences will be shared by our instructor to deal with emergency situations during any trekking expedition.
We will explore Kathian and nearby meadows and the oaks and rhododendrons trees in the forest which lies just behind the campsite.
