Today was the first day of my Kailash Yatra. For next three days there would be medical tests, briefing by MEA,formation of different Committees and other stuff. There were 48 yatris in my batch, oldest being Gyanaprakasham ji at 69 years and youngest Rishabh at 25 years. Our Liaison Officer was Balaji Majumdar. I also met all my fellow batchmates. Our liaison officer had already formed a whatsapp group beforehand, so it was easy to communicate. There were 6 females in our batch including me. People from diverse backgrounds come for yatra from length and breadth of country. Some people had already done yatra and were ready to help others who needed some information.
My tests were finished by 10.30am but I had to wait for lecture on high altitude sickness. Lunch was served and we departed post lunch.
