panch chuli - yudhishtir peak

pretty soon, i finished my prasad - 3 pooris, some saag (vegetables) and sweets.

drove down to munsyari, which is around 10-11 kms from the temple. it was totally dark. stayed in the trc (tourist rest centre) of kmvn (kumaon mandal vikas nigam).
ganga ram had come to meet me. he said that he will arrange everything for tomorrow. had a light dinner. then it was zzzzzz .. snoreee for the night. i was sooooooo tired after travelling non stop. but in 26 hrs i had reached munsyari from madras (chennai).

just closed my eyes and zonked off.

the kmvn trc where i had spent the night.
my room was on the ground floor. so u can jump out of the window and land in the garden.

in the distance u can see the burphu peaks. the gorge below is that of the gori ganga river. last year i had gone on this route to milam village. earlier, it was a major trading village with tibet and had 500 families. now just a few ruins and an itbp camp. hopefully, the trade will be restarted in a few years. then the prosperous days will return again.

Hi Prashant,

We stayed in that KMVN, TRC at Munsiyari. Our room was on 1st floor corner. If you head down the road from the bus stand, towards the town, within 20 ds you will see a small eatery (husband and wife run) on your right side. My wife taught the lady to make bengali "aloor dum". I am sure she can make that tasty dish anytime now.

I dont know the name of the restaurant. There was a black dog that kept rolling around. It had a small veranda with two wooden benches.

Nothing like uttarakhand

Hello manolin,

You can use photobucket. Upload slightly larger size pics (1200 * 800) onto PB. then you can make them public and get their image urls. Then you can put the image urls in the html of the blog post.
