My College Trip to Chail - Part 12

We all then got ready to leave for Delhi. Having packed our bags, we gathered at the main hall of Hotel Monaal and had our breakfast. Then again started the shooting session with all of us excited again to capture as much as we could of our trip to Chail in our cameras. We all sat in a cue on the stairs going upwards and yes you guessed it right, I was heading them all, sitting in the front position. Our teachers then told us that we will be leaving in an hour and this was the time that our tour operator, Rohit told us that it would have been wonderful if we could have also visited the Chail Palace. So what was expected next after hearing this? We all, again the second year girls, took on this as a mission and told our teachers that we will be reaching the bus within an hour.

Full of excitement we all started on our way to Chail Palace that was located at a distance of about 3 kms from Hotel Monaal. It was just like a walking journey from Katra to Vaishno Devi, we all got tired and started loosing breath but the excitement to see what others will be missing kept us going. Finally, we reached our destination, Chail Palace and we just had 30 minutes left. The first thing we did after reaching the palace was that we laid flat on the sofas in the main hall, as we were exhausted like anything.

What I did next will be shared in part 13...
