Mulkharka- Pitamchin Trek

 

It was our two days trip to Pitamchin(Mulkharkha) on 4th Jan 2018. We took Chuba Lingsey route to reach our destination.While travelling to this place we experienced many things like the offbeat road, trekking for 2 hours from Pitamchin just to see the natural beauty of Mulkharkha Lake (Fusray). Many circumstances came our way but we didn’t step back we just focused with our plan and kept moving to explore the beauty of nature. We are very glad enough to get a support at our every step like Tilak Da and Prahar Bhai who really helped us in our entire trip by providing accommodations and helping with the route maps towards Lake.
We hope you guys might enjoy our first vlog and keep supporting us for up coming videos.
