DoW Mega Meet 2017 - Uttarakhand, The Land of Gods

Postby dheerajsharma14 » Sun Sep 17, 2017 10:37 pm

After the last four DoW Mega Meets in the high and remote parts of the Himalayas, this year we plan to swing on the roads of the lower Himalayas. Last year, it was Bhutan, The Land of Dragons in November 2017. However, this time in order to materialize the vision of DoW Community for promoting the Responsible Travel and DoW Causes up in the Himalayas, we will travel to “Uttarakhand, The land of Gods“. The fifth edition of DoW Mega Meet 2017 will be held in Uttarakhand – Garhwal & Kumaon from 18th November to 25th November 2017. In last few years of the DoW Mega Meets, we have taken the DoW Causes to the next HIGH and of course, we would like to raise our spirits of Responsible Travel and spreading smiles up there in the Himalayas, even higher this time.

You can refer the detailed article at: Uttarakhand, The Land of Gods – DoW Mega Meet 2017

Day 0 – Friday Evening, 17th Nov | Home – Rishikesh / Hardiwar
Make a move from your home and reach Haridwar/Rishikesh on Friday evening. Rendezvous point of the Mega Meet kickoff will be Kautilya next morning at 9 AM with breakfasts done.

Day 1 – Saturday, 18th Nov | Rishikesh / Hardiwar – Sari Village – Deoriatal Lake
After flagging off the Mega Meet at 9 AM, we will drive to Sari Village and trek to Deoriatal Lake. Spend overnight camping at Deoriatal.

After a lazy morning breakfast, we will drive from Sari village through Gopeshwar – Chopta route to Joshimath.

Day 3 – Monday, 20th Nov | Joshimath to Auli to Gorson Top and back to Auli or Joshimath.
We will take call in the group discussions between stay at Auli and Joshimath as stays at Auli are expensive so need to figure out camping comfort with everyone in the group.

Day 4 – Tuesday, 21st Nov | Hidden Gems around Auli.
This will be a relaxing day and today we will be exploring some hidden gems around Auli, those interested can also go over to Badrinath.

Day 5 – Wednesday, 22nd Nov | Joshimath/Auli to Khirsu.
Today we drive to a quaint place in the lap of mother nature to relax and rejuvenate called Khirsu.

Day 6 – Thursday, 23rd Nov | Khirsu to Gwaldam.
After relaxing in the quaint village of Khirsu, we will drive from Khirsu to Gwaldam, a place where you can witness the magnanimous beauty of Trishul peak from a touching distance. A sunrise and sunset worth dying .

Day 7 – Friday 24th Nov | Gwaldam – Kausani – Binsar.
Today we drive from Gwaldam to Kausani to Binsar, a place surrounded by forest and greenery where you can hear the birds singing and relax to the closure of Mega Meet.

Day 8 – Friday 25th Nov | Binsar – Kathgodam / Delhi.
Finally, call off the Mega Meet and we drive back home to Delhi from Binsar or can take train from Kathgodam. Those who have the Sunday as well can spend at either Nainital or a day visit to Patal Bhuwaneshwar caves would also be worth doing.
