This post is about the adventure trip to Kanatal near Mussoorie, Dhanualti in Uttarakhand. It was a company trip in which around 150 of us went to Camp Carnival in Kanatal.
Travel is to get a life back and I wanted to get my life back from boring everyday job for that I started making a plan for another bike trip. This bike trip is yet to happen but before I go to that trip I have one outstanding task to accomplish, that is to write a travelogue of my previous trip.

Now that was a trip organized by my company and that was one of the very rare trips in which we just had to enjoy with such a large group and icing on cake was: we didn't have to pay even a single penny. Trip was all free free free.
I am writing this travelogue almost a year since I last wrote my previous one. Also the trip happened in September'12 and thus I don't remember very minute details but still I'll try to write down some fading memories. Some people may also call it a photologue as details and writing would be less and I'll try to share large part of memories with help of photos only.

So, let's begin, it was september'12 when our company made us jump with joy and announced that we would be going on a trip. They asked for people who'll be going and also a poll happened to decide a place. So, in all a group of appx. 150 people was formed and place that got zeroed in was Kanatal, a hill station near Dhanaulti. I, like many in the company, never heard of a place and one week before most of the people in the company used to stare at google maps and also used to search for Kanatal on internet. We decided it to be a two day trip and formed two groups. Group1 was a group that would start on Thursday night and would come back on Saturday night and Group2 was a group that would start with Group1 but would come back on sunday morning and would visit Haridwar en-route. So, it was obvious for me to choose Group2.

Some of the moments that made that trip so awesome:-

Camp Kanatal is among best available camping option around Delhi, its name is Camp Carnival but is famous as Camp Kanatal, one more option to the resorts in Dhanaulti or Kanatal is Club Mahindra resort in Kanatal. But surely for camping Camp Kanatal is best alternative to Hotels in Dhanualti or for that matter Hotels in Mussoorie.

This trip to Kanatal for our company was organised by an Adventure Management company 'VXPLOR' (vXplor Adventure Tourism). They managed whole tour quite well and people from vxplor were very supportive. I remember a name of person from vxplor, Gaurav, who was very nice. They kept each and every member involved in activities throughout the trip.

Day1 or to be precise Night 1, We all people gathered at an assembly area and it was 9 in the night, 4 buses were waiting for us and we all occupied our seats in hush hush and in riotous manner according to the pre-decided division. Did few sessions of group photographs and after half or so hour of riot, buses started their ignition all together and there we go.. A trip full of enjoyment started. In our bus it was made clear that no body would sleep and if anybody found sleeping, there will be consequences :p .. and he will be ragged :p. In the bus we found a mike that was attached to the speakers. So, never ending Karaoke sessions started and what I remember they went on till 2-2:30 am and then gradually people started sleeping.

At 5-5:30 I woke up, and it was mesmerizing view outside when I saw outside the window of our bus. Mountains were lush green and fog was playing hide and seek. It also rained gently few times. It was the morning of the heaven.
