which way are we going? The sound of running water is so good Tanu - Feels like a bit different right? Ishu - it is quite different Its quite calm and nice we will get a chance to spent time with ourselves away from city life It is a bit cloudy but still really nice weather From here itself it feels like it is a very different start compared to what we have been exploring so far Are we sure that we are on the right path? I dont know since I have not checked it properly I think we should follow the markings with a 'T' in red colour In this bag we have our food for today and tomorrow Ishu - I still have network on my phone Tanu - We will know about it more when we reach at top Ishu - I can feel some rain droplets already Tanu - Yes me top We have waterproof jackets so it should be ok I can't see any marking anywhere Don't wry, we will know soon if we are on the right path. Here I found the marking found our the first marking It is raining now. Ishu - I am already tired Tanu - I think the reason is that you are carrying a lot of weight. Exciting journey when we dont even know if we are on the right path or not It is already 6 pm, I hope we dont have to sleep in the woods Even there is no place to sleep here, we will have to spend all night sitting And what if we see a lion What are we gonna do then :-D I thought we have already reached No! here is another marking with a 'T' Tanu - It is a very different hiking place Ishu - It feels quite dangerous It is pouring heavily now This is some serious hiking. It is raining heavily now We have been walking for so long but no sign of our destination It has been raining heavily Ishu - This is where we are coming from and we are going on this side Tanu - See how big the mountain is Ishu- I think the only problem is that it is raining otherwise we are enjoying it We have been walking for 40 minutes but it was not that tiring The rain has stopped and it feels really good to get rid of this jacket We are coming from this side and going to that side :-D We are going to Skåpet so we are sure that we are on the right path Here is another 'T' which indicates that we are on right track Ishu - no but we have already seen that board so we are sure about it anyways now See they have another marking with woods You see how they like my name initials that they have 'T' everywhere I thought we would have reached but there is still way to go You have already declared that we have reached and started enjoying it Ishu - What happened why are you sitting like this? Tanu - I am tired now We have been walking for 1 and a half hours through different terrains. Probably you cant even see the path

But there are no signs of our destination And if you ask what we have in front of us On our right, we have this mountain In front of us there is this small path and on left another mountain with alot of trees Now we will take a five minute break before we continue. I was feeling hungry, there is nothing to eat apart from banana. Ishu - You are fasting today as well right? You are hiking like a pro, even when fasting Tanu - we have only been hiking for one hour Ishu - It has been more than one hour, around one and a half hour Tanu - We started at 5:30 and it is already 7 pm. Yes you are right It is our first stop since we started I dont know how long this will take Generally when we walk around our home, we walk for 6 kms in 1/1.5 hours even with breaks but this was a bit steep and rocky Ishu - Not 'a bit' but quite steep and rocky We were sitting there When we were wondering how much distance is left but little did we know that we are almost here. Now lets go and check it out Can't figure out the difficulty since we can see much Why are you falling now after doing all those hard miles And now we will show you why we are carrying in this bag carrying this non hiking bag which contains Curry leaves, soya chunks, tomato, banana, coriander powder and not only a little but the whole packet because she thought, it will be short hike and we will reach in a very less time Now what will you do if this bag gets ripped or torn? Will you hang all the spices on your neck? Tanu - I will give it away to someone here No one is interested in indian spice at this place All these cabins are self maintained There is no room service or cleaning facility here No when we will use it, we will have to clean it when we leave so that the ones who will come here in future feel welcoming as well Now we will go inside and show you how it looks like As you can see, there are no locks on the door and it was already open Tanu - The view is really beautiful with that big glass Ishu - I think this place is worth of a room tour Ishu - This is really nice Tanu - If you get this after a long hike then why not Ishu - Not sure about the room itself but the view is awesome Tanu - Yes I meant the view only and what is it up there? I think there is some space to sleep upstairs as well shall I quickly go and have a look There are four more beds here In this cabin, you need to book the whole cabin even it there are only two people coming We just saw this notice here in the room As tanu mentioned earlier, these are self maintained cabins Everyone has responsibilities assigned to them as per their cabin number We are staying in cabin 6, so we need to clean the sauna And remove the trash in the kitchen, put new trash bags in the bins while we are staying as this place Similarly, people living in each cabin are allocated some common tasks I think you have mentioned everything already So will you clean all the garbage bins in the kitchen? yes I will do it.....

Now we will go for sauna and will show you how it looks like And then we need to clean it as well on our way back At this place, you need to clean up whatever area you use. maintain everything as one do at their home. Not like a hotel where you need not to care much about cleaning And this the pit toilet they have here One of the cleaner ones that I have seen so far.

Does not smell too bad, probably due to the lid on top of it. So now it is time to clean up this area we will clean quickly it and go for dinner If you want to take a shower after sauna you can see this tap here, and stones will warm the water and you can use buckets to fill warm water from this tap There are a-lot of buckets here after adding the water in that tank you will find the bathing area outside there is a pulley using which you can flow the water through that pipe and take a shower So this is how they have built this mechanical system Here we have some hot water for cooking food And knife that I need Tanu - Soya chunks with curry and rice, we only had this option I don't know if I should eat this during fasting but.. but this is prepared exactly the way we cook food during your fasting days "Amritsari Nutri" Now we will eat this because we are really hungry Yes I have not eaten much and have been surviving the whole day on bananas The care taker just came and told me that sometime they do have electricity I was wondering how they bring electricity here but then "Solar panels" came to my mind this is so tasty...... So this is the next morning and we are going to the kitchen for breakfast and if you can see there are some solar panels installed for electricity and right on top of it you can see, those fans act as exhaust in kitchen here it spins with the air pressure outside and pulls smoke out of the kitchen so basically a mechanical chimney which do not use any electricity which is cool Right now its 12:40 pm and there you see huts where we stayed last night We forgot to record while leaving that place but then I though we could start now, its not too late Right now its 12:40 pm and the step count is 2626 now we will check how many steps and time it will take to reach to the starting point Time is 14:15 now and the step count is 8239 It is not too many steps but the type of terrain makes it a bit tougher and there are a-lot of big rocks on the way. The path is not simple and straight There is a-lot of up and down on the way and that makes it unique I guess. Anyways once you reach there, it speaks for itself. The nice views on the way as well makes it really unique This is one of the most unique stays in Norway So now we are back on our way from our adventurous stay We thought that we will share our experience as soon as we finish hiking back to the starting point As soon as we reached at the parking, our phones ran out of battery and that is why we could not record much then we charged our phone in the car and we think now is the time to share our experience Ishu - and now we are charging our car :-D The place where we stayed had no electricity when we reached there but there were solar panels for electricity and those were working a day before there was some problem in the solar panel the day we arrived there and it did not work Even if there is electricity, you can not use your phone there because there is no cellular network in that area Overall it was a nice stay There are some things that you can consider if you going to this place.

First is - good hiking shoes, we were wearing the right kind of shoes We were considering sport shoes in the beginning but then we though if we are going to hike, we should wear hiking shoes We considered sport shoes because we thought that the hiking will be simple and it wont be that difficult. but it was a typical hike as you might have seen in the video. So good hiking shoes are must and it is nicer to wear full length waterproof pants and jacket. Of course it is a personal preference And you need to fill the fresh drinkable water from the streams yourself While filling my water bottle, my foot slipped into the water. Consequently my socks and shoes were soaking and by mistake I left my extra pair of socks in the car.

So I was missing another pair of socks And thats is why it is good to have an extra pair of socks so that you don't suffer if this happens at all. Apart from that there is the costing part. The stay cost was 1690 NOK and you can book the cabin for up-to six people and cost for sauna was around 350 NOK all these amounts are in Norwegian Krona - NOK So I think thats all the costs that you have. apart from that you have to cook food, so that cost depends on what you are preparing We think that is all. The starting point of hike is in Vinddalen we will put all the links from where you can book the stay in description and also the google location of that place So that you don't make the mistakes that we did and loose money and time.

so we will put all those details in the description Please share your views about this video in the comment section so that we get the motivation to travel and record such video for you all
