Preparing #kundol or #wintermelon#wintergourd#waxmelon for the first time in a #SmokedHamShank#soup . Smells wonderful so far! Anyone want to try cooking some? Let me know, I have way too much. Instead of being used like a fruit, I understand many cultures use it like a vegetable in savory soups, stirfries, curries and even candied kubdol.
The plan was to do Kundol Lake trek with night stay. I had the dates of moonless nights in mind so there was great chance of awesome views of Milkyway and with luck weather forecast was also clear. Since, Kundol Lake used to be one of the easier treks amongst the lake treks of Pakistan so this was the reason to choose it for the large group.
