Day 7 (18/08/2016) – Today was last day of our trekking. So we had a little chit chat session among the group members and our trek guides and cooks. These guys were at the top of their hospitality. Food provided by them was awesome. Both our trek guides Pinkoo and Abhishek were very responsible people. They were always there to help. One always used to lead the trek and other person would follow the last remaining person of the group.
We started our return journey by Tata Sumo. First, we ascend to Rohtang Pass. The place was icy chill, Though there was no snow there. After that, descent started for Manali. The journey was jaw dropping.
I think I had witnessed 200 to 300 waterfalls in this entire trek. Incredible, isn’t it !!!
The sumo drops you till Manali, same point from where the journey started. But we got down before, on the intersection to the road that leads to village Vashishth. We took a room behind the temple. It was a nice backpacker room for 350 INR per night. After a long trek, first, we took a hot water shower. Although we were living beside river and waterfall, but the irony is, still we didn’t bath for last 5 days.
In evening we went to Sulphur hot water spring to relax ourselves. Spent almost an hour there.
Then we walk down to Manu Market. This is a local market just behind the mall road. We had SIDDU and tea at FOUJI TEA STALL. This is only shop in this market who make this local Himachali delicacy. They serve SIDDU with a green chutney. Mouth Watering!! Tea was also fantastic. After that, we walk down to old Manali .We had a nice PIZZA at Olive Garden. Delicious !!
