Exploring India 2009 – Manali

Oct 19


After enduring almost 8 hours of van ride through the mountainous region of Himachal Pradesh, I finally reached Manali safely at the break of dawn. I didn’t have proper sleep during the bumpy journey. Instead of sleeping after checking in to my room, I decided to do a 4-hour trek up a mountain to realize my dream of touching a real snow. I was totally flat after that and slept like a pig that night. I spend the next day all by myself, relaxing in the cold and peaceful valley. It was blissful sitting there and do nothing but enjoying the beautiful scenery. The people are very friendly too. There was one guy who gave me a free ride to the bus station because I couldn’t get any auto-rickshaw during early morning. Otherwise, I would have missed my bus ride to Shimla.
