After breakfast around 7:30 AM, we head to Dhak Village to start our trek. Keep a jacket handy, you may need it along the way, but if the sun is up, you can easily trek in a t-shirt and a fleece. You’ll walk through the dusty trails up to Tugashi village, which will be your first water source. It’s a charming little village, where you’ll get a glimpse of the traditional way of life of the locals. As you move further up from Tugashi village, the terrain changes and you’ll find yourself walking in and out a beautiful oak forest. The forest opens up to a clearing or a meadow every now and then. You’ll have your lunch at Gulling around 1 pm, rest up here but gear up for the final ascend to the Tali Campsite from here. It’s not a steep ascend, but for the next 4KMs, you’ll be walking uphill. Tali campsite is right in the middle of the forest, and you’ll be delighted to be there because you’ll have a team waiting with hot beverages and snacks for you.
