Trek Story: Arjun Wahi, the 7-year-old boy who completed Kedarkantha trek

Posted By : Diksha Kumar/ 1420 5

At the age of just 7 years and three months, Arjun Wahi completed his trek to the Kedarkantha Peak on 29th December and made us believe that kids are no less. We recently interviewed this schoolgoing boy from Mumbai, and he narrated his awe-inspiring experience and journey to this beautiful winter trek, we hope to inspire many with his trek story. Read on!

Arjun-Wahi

Q: What inspired you to go trekking?

A: I love being outdoors with my mom, dad, and brother. I inherited my love for trekking from my father and he is my inspiration. From the very beginning, my dad has taken me on many small treks in and around Mumbai and Lonavala. This year, I learned skiing and climbed down Aparwat phase 1 ( 11,000 feet) in Gulmarg, Kashmir. Kedarkantha was the first Himalayan Trek for me and my elder brother.

arjun-wahi-with-dad

Q: Why did you choose Kedarkantha trek? How was your experience?

A: When my dad got to know about this trek he told us that the highest altitude was only 12,000 ft. and this would be an ‘easy’ trek for kids. Also, we were fortunate enough to find suitable dates during our winter break.

My trek experience was amazing. I made a lot of friends who pampered and cheered me throughout the trek. Our trek leaders Ameen Bhaiya and Sandeep Bhaiya took good care of me and made sure I had enough sleeping blankets throughout the night. I also want to mention Faizal Bhaiya, Harish Bhaiya and Darshan Bhaiya for their constant support, motivation and cheering. I enjoyed my trek thoroughly.

Q: Do you also motivate your friends and classmates to go trekking?

A: Recently, I have not been able to connect with too many of my friends, but yes, I think I was able to motivate my cousins and close friends.

arjun-wahi

Q: For a young boy like you, this trek must have been difficult so what kept you going?

A: It was a winter trek so we were prepared for the harsh and cold weather. At night, the temperature was below freezing point and it got really chilly but our trek leaders made sure to check up on me every night and provided extra sleeping bags etc.

Q: Do you inculcate this passion for trekking from your parents?

A: Yes, my father and grandfather are both from the Armed Forces. They have always been enthusiastically active and they love being outdoors and they make sure to take us children with them. My elder brother also encourages me to participate in such activities and he is a big influence on me.

arjun-wahi-with-brother

Q: In those five days of trekking, what is the most memorable event?

A: My best memory of the trek would be the time I reached a small ‘Maggi Hut’ on the summit day. After almost 4 hours of trekking in the dark and in sub-zero temperatures, we reached that small Maggi point. But the moment I reached there, everyone made space for me to sit next to the fire. And I was treated with hot Maggi noodles.

Q: Was it a proud moment when you reached the summit?

A: Even though I was extremely tired, I jumped with happiness when I reached the summit. I remember, for almost an hour Ameen Bhaiya kept motivating me by saying “10 minutes more, 10 minutes more”.

Everyone took pictures with me, Faizal Bhaiya threw me in the snow, it was a lot of fun!

arjun-reached-summit

Q: Was there any particular event from this trip that challenged you?

A: The climb to the top of the summit was the most challenging task, we woke up at 3:30 am, the temperature was below zero. We got ready and by 4:30 am, we had started our trek. I was walking with my dad as there was a long and continuous stretch of ascent and we kept walking for 3 hours and the trek got tougher due to low temperatures. However, I was rejoiced and rejuvenated once we took that break at the ‘Maggi Hut’.

Q: Any advice for young first-time trekkers out there?

A: I think every young trekker must try to attempt ‘Kedarkantha trek’ once in their life. And they must do it with Ameen and Sandeep Bhaiya because they are a lot of fun and take great care of kids.

arjun-wahi

Q: Can you sum up your whole experience in few words?

A: It was a wonderful experience and I made a lot of new friends. Trekking in the Himalayas is very enjoyable. I would love to come back every year during my school breaks.

At this young age of 7, Arjun amazed us all with his determination and willpower. Arjun is an inspiration to all of us, his trek to the Kedarkantha peak proves that anyone can go for this mesmerizing winter trek. Arjun definitely had an amazing experience. Do you think trek to the Kedarkantha could be your winter adventure too?

Daunting Climb of Pangarchulla Peak Trek

Pangarchulla Peak Trek takes you above 15000 ft from mean sea level is usually chosen by the initiates, before attempting the higher peaks in the Himalayas, for its moderate yet challenging grade. The winter season as well as spring are both perfect for climbing although April and May are the preferred months after the winter snow has settled down. The technical difficulty of this trek and the gradient make it a perfect training ground for novices. The Pangarchulla Peak trek leads you from the lush green meadows better known as the Bugyals through dense forest cover and stunning snow covered peaks in the Garwhal region. The prominent peaks- Neelkanth, Nanda Devi, Mount Kamet, Hathi Parbat, Dronagiri and many more are visible on this trek. Pangarchulla with its magnificent beauty and moderate climb is a much sought after trek for beginners and the experienced alike.

Here is my day to day experiences of my climb of Pangarchulla Peak

Day 1: Haridwar to Auli (2450M): We drove early morning from Haridwar to Joshimath via the holy confluences of Devprayag and Rudraprayag along the banks of the sacred Ganges and Alaknanda Rivers up to the picturesque Auli town- a skiing destination situated in the midst of the beautiful ranges.

Day 2: Auli to Khulara (3225M): A hearty breakfast in beautiful settings is a good idea before heading out to cross the Bugyals at Auli. Get a good views of Nanda Devi, Mt Kamet, Hathi Ghodi Parvat and more majestic peaks and trek through rich forests to emerge into the prairies of Gorson. Oak, Chestnut, Deodar and Maple trees form another expanse of forests before you reach the campsite of Tali with a tiny lake. Another lengthy walk brings you to the vast meadows of Khulara campsite amongst the mountainous landscapes. Camp at Khulara be under a vast night sky full of twinkling stars.

Day 3: Khulara to Kuari Pass (3650 M) Pangarchula Base: An early start will allow you time to pause at the awe-inspiring peaks of Chaukhamba, Neelkanth, Kedarnath, Haathi, Kamet, Mana, Dronagiri and more. The trek starts with a climb through the green and rich pastures of Khulara, passes through Kuari Pass and then in view of the towering peaks before settling for camp at the Pangarchulla Base camp.

Day 4: Base Camp to Pangarchula Peak (4700M): It’s time to gather your energy and climb up the mountain slopes and ridges to summit Pangarchulla Peak. Snow covered tracks and mesmerizing views keep you busy as you trudge across to the peak. The climb, using gaiters and crampons is challenging and demands your complete attention and fitness. The mighty peaks of Nanda Devi, Trishul and other majestic peaks are sights to behold and you can take your time clicking and gathering beautiful memories before walking back to camp. The sense of achievement and exhilaration on summiting a peak with technical challenges is huge.

Day 5: Base Camp to Dhak Bend (3225 M): We trek down via Charming villages like Tugasi & Karcho and robust forests make a fine trek down to Dhak village via the road linking Joshimath and Niti Malari Valley. Earlier trekkers use to trek down to Tapovan but as the new road is constructed Dhak bend is preferred option. After an arduous downhill trek which is far more problematic then trekking uphill we had our chai stop at a local tea stall where we had nice interaction with the locals of Dhak village and drove back to our Hotel at Joshimath. We distributed the certificates of participation and celebrate the success of our trek to Kuari Pass Trek and Pangarchulla Peak Trek.rental mobil jakarta

Day 6: Auli to Haridwar: It’s farewell to the mountains and a long drive back to Haridwar but one you’ll spend reminiscing and dreaming of Pangarchulla, its beautiful peaks and meadows and of course the feather in your cap of having sumitted one of the most beautiful peaks in the Garhwal Mountains.
