From Barot we walked along the road to Nalhota, in Chota Bhangal, where we stayed in a rented room for the second night. Story of the third day trek from Nalhota to Rajgundha, crossing the Uhl River and exploring Rajgundha was covered in the last post. Morning was biting-cold, and after coming back from the brook, I had to slip back into my sleeping bag.

Light descended slowly down from the peaks and reached at our camping site at around 7:15 AM, and that is when Sun with its round shape started to emerge from behind the mountain. An old couple came to the nearby fields with a pair of oxen, a plough and yoke. We acquainted with Sh. Ashok Kumar who wore a Himachali cap, and asked whatever we could ask about his farms.
Potatoes and vegetables are the two things that mostly are grown. To sell they have to carry them manually to Badagram on the other side of the Uhl. He also told about his son who had been pursuing a degree in Engineering at some private engineering college at Kangra.
