Sari Village, Uttrakhand

A new adventure begins. I have arrived today at Sari Village, 6554 feet after a 9 hour drive from Rishikesh through lots of landslide debris. I think we did around 30km an hour! Bit hairy at times and I did wonder was it worth it! Arriving at dusk I discovered that this is a very small village with orchids of fruit and farming. Women carrying heavy loads of hay from the fields below is testimony to their strength. The cows are fed well here and unlike other places are tethered to homes. Sari is base camp for Deloris Tal, a short walk up hill to a height of 7800 feet. There is an Lake at the top where you can camp amongst the Red flowered Rhododendron and Oak trees. This has been my vision - to find a lake to camp by for awhile. For this lake I will have two nights!
