    The inside temperature of the Igloo was pretty cozy because it was a pure wind breaker... and outside very very cold breeze was on the move... The igloo was much more cozy than our tent...

    But we had hareem with us... and his sleeping style is very unique... he changes sides very awkwardly, which created a lot of sound in that structure... but for people like me these things doesn't matter as "main khotay koray waich kar sota hoon" but Bhatti sb noticed it pretty well...

    Day 10

    Got up early in the morning as had to cross the bara pani with our bikes... and the best time to cross it is early in the morning... because due to cold temperature, the melting of glaciers has reduced and the level of water is less... otherwise when the sun is up, the water level also rises...

    But still in that early morning the water level was at knee height and damn cold...

    Standing by the first portion of the obstacle... and trying to figure out a less deeper part from where we can cross it with our bikes... remember the water was so cold that after 1-2 seconds one could not feel that body part with himself that touches water... and we had to walk in it... but that was really a fun part... ( tough painful but really fun and memorable part... )

    In the background a small view of a 4x4 can be seen which was stuck in the later part of the stream... so you can imaging what was under that water... So, water was not the only problem there...

    Others preparing to cross the stream... like putting off the shoes, folding trousers above knee height, securing stuff that was damageable from water... etc... (because wet shoes and clothes can be more teasing...)
