In November 2015 Varun Kaoundinya completed his trek to Goechala. Then he came back and documented his entire journey in a picturesque blog called In The Lap Of Kanchanjunga – a trek to Goechala.

Here is an excerpt:

“The first campsite is deep inside the national park . A small stream nearby ensures water supply and a wonderful view of thick forests ahead makes SACHEN a beautiful camp site experience.”

This blog paints a great picture of how the Goechala trek actually looks. And just for its vivid imagery, we nominate Varun’s blog as the winner of November 2015 Blog Contest. Congratulations, Varun!

Take a look at Varun’s blog and tell us what do you think?
