Solo travel experience to Sarahan


When nobody accompanied me, I became my own travel partner. This was a place I read about in on of the facebook links. Researching a bit about the place, I started my journey alone after a stressful day at work on a Thursday.

I took a Volvo to Shimla at 9 pm from Mandi house. My stomach wanting some food, took me to a small shop across the bus stand at Mandi house. I ordered for Kadhi chawal which I alone could not finish. At the end I was could not figure out that dish was actually tasty or it was my hunger that made it mouth watering. And below are some pointers from my experience for a planned trip to Sarahan, Himachal, India. Photo of Solo travel experience to Sarahan 1/4 by Ghumakad Geetika

From Rampur take another local bus directly to Sarahan or if you miss that , because    it  operates every one hour, there is another option of taking  bus to jeori (17 km from Rampur). From Jeori, Sarahan is 11 Km uphill. Lot of options of Auto,  cab available at the exit for  Sarahan from Jeori.

 b. For group/ luxury travelers- Hire a cab from Shimla to Sarahan (5 hrs journey)


Best option is the Himachal Tourism Government Guest House.
