This is day 3 and we have deceided to go Narkanda and firstly we made a call to our Shimla Cab Driver "Shashi" and he told us that he will take only 3000 rs to drop us to Narkanda and take us back to Kufri and it was the best price as we have checked the same on internet and it was cheaper than those all suggestions available on internet. So net morning we have checked out from hotel and paid 2100 for One day and additionally paid food charges... which was quit good withing acceptable Limit. 300 rs to Room heater too :D now our journey to Narkand has started we have withdraw cash from ATM as you would required Cash always to continue your journey smoothly... we have experienced the best nature sight through out the road trip from Kufri to Narkhanda and really it was the best road trip I could ever have!!! Wow.. watch these pics and see yourself :D when we reached to the Tracking point we have found that if you want to reach top of the Narkanda Temple and Snow Field which was at 65000 ft above... you need to wear tracking suits and Boots which was totally waste as it doesn't help you to climb properly... So i would suggest you to take one guide and boots that's It. and Wooden stick also which will help you to get the grip on the slippery hills. it looks vertical and toughest tracking you would ever experienced... take 5 min break in every 10 minutes climb. Almost 5+ KM of distance has to be covered through climbing on the hill. But you will see the nature closely and can have some clicks from the top of the Narkanda!! when we reached at the top at snow area we have experienced half area covered completely by snow and help area shining bright in Sunlight which was crystal clear and Himalaya was looking right in front of us... what and amazing moment it was we were pulled by the nature so badly that we want to spent time as much as we can on the top point.. the velvet sheet of snow was almost 1 week old but still so soft to keep in hand and play with it like we do while fresh snow fall.. we wanted to wave our Indian flag from the top of the Narkanda... you should try once and it will give you flood of patriotic feelings.... now we have decided to back down to Starting point and it has taken less than half time compare to the climbing time. now Shashi took us back to Shimla in 3000 RS whereas we has paid for Kufri only but he was so kind that he has reused to take money even though he dropped us directly to Shimla... we have reached Shimla and completed some shopping from Lakkad market and took our bus to Delhi at 10 PM. Once again we have reach Delhi before 2 hours :D :D but this time throughout the journey no one has Vomited in Bus because this time we were tired and got sleep in bust for the first time in bus. what a Nap it was like we have finished our journey with best nap!!!
