Day 1 - Delhi To Devprayag I had first planned to visit Deoria Taal in last week of December, hoping that it would have snowed by then, but that plan did not materialse because i ended up cancelling my leaves and spending that weekend at work. Original plan for the month of February was to take a week off and visit the Spiti valley but this plan also was trashed as i could not afford to be away from work for a week in Feb. So with 3 days in hand, these 2 plans were put together. Deorial Taal was picked from the 1st plan and the month of February from the 2nd. It had been raining in Delhi for last few days and newspapers were reporting that Delhi hasnt seen so much of rain in the month of Feb since 1940s. It had been snowing up in the hills and even the Manali Highway was blocked due heavy snow. But that only lifted our spirits and hopes of catching some snow at Deorial Taal were sky high. As it happens with every trip, people kept joining and dropping out and with 1 person's addition in the very last hour, a group of 6 was finalised upon. Apart from me, the other 5 were as below.
