The ShaikhSpear Himachal Diary 2016: Along the Detour

Off the Jalori Pass to Serolsar Lake Trail, Himachal Pradesh, India, 19th September 2016, 11:25 am:

After the stunning view across the top of the grassy mound, we decided to continue ahead along our Detour rather than rejoin the Main Trail. A hair-raising incident along the Detour made us quickly change our mind and head back to the Main Trail at the earliest, down the steep hillside, through fallen oak leaves and mud. It took us 20 minutes to rush back down and rejoin the Main Trail.
