Joshi Tea Stop. Kukuchina
Beginning of Trek.
About 2 Km walk from Kukuchina to Rathkhaal.
Trek begins to Gufa located at 9000 feet near Pandukholi.
Waterfall in the forest.
Going up and up.
Inside of the Gufa. Nothing but the Himalayan silence and Babaji's grace dwells.
As soon as I finished meditating, clouds started rumbling and very hard rainfall started pouring. May be Babaji's signal to leave :-)
Inside Mahavatar Babaji Smriti Bhawan. This is just before the Cave located on a hill.

DO NOT wear Slippers like this person. Wear shoes with good grip (unless you're an accomplished Yogi or a localite :)

Mr Netraballabh Joshi told us that this dog waits on this trek back to Kukuchina and guides people back who have come back after visiting Babaji's Cave. This dog has done this for years now.

Mr. Joshi with whom we discussed many things after our trek back to Kukuchina over a cup of hot and sweet Himalayan Tea. Topics ranged from Babaji to Ashwathhama to Mahabharata to Himalayas.
We offered food to the Guide dog as a token of gratitude and his selfless service.
