To perform their eternal marriage, they decided to climb to the Baralacha La pass & from there they ran in opposite directions. Chandra, being active and smart, easily found her way & reached Tandi after covering the distance of 115 kms. Soon, Bhaga was found coming with great struggle through the narrow gorges to Tandi where consequently both met and the celestial marriage was performed.
