Trekkers in the 7th July group on the Brammah Valley trek in Jammu and Kashmir are on their way back to the base camp after completing a 3-day trek above Sounder village. While they were unable to do the Brammah Valley trek due to heavy rains, they enjoyed an alternate trek from where they got a glimpse of the Brammah Valley.
“It rained continuously for 72-hours during the first three days of the trek. So we stayed put at Sounder village, which is the base. After that, once the weather cleared up, Trek Leader Bijju Shekar, took the team on a beautiful 3-day trek right above Sounder.
Trekkers are now on their way back. They are expected to reach the base camp by 4 pm,” reports Slope Manager Nitesh Kumar from Sounder.
Due to heavy rains and landslides, the route leading out of Sounder was reportedly blocked. But the blockages have been cleared now. And trekkers will be able to travel back to Jammu after their trek.
