The best way to know a person is to spend a couple of days in an unknown destination with them. To keep it short, take a trip with them. And as a self-proclaimed traveller who cannot do away without heading out the city every once in a while, I had to go on a trip with my boyfriend.
This is how our plan to travel to Manali came into the picture. But as you are well-aware, travelling to hills during heavy rains is not the best idea. Ignoring all the weather predictions, we went ahead with our plan anyhow because Pahad, maggi and chai-sutta in the company of your favourite person was compelling enough. Also, what could be the worst thing that would happen?
You know, apart from being stranded near Kullu Airport for an entire day with no news of when will the buses start again. So, yeah for future reference, try to avoid heading to the hills in monsoon. But if you really do want to go, I would say it is pretty darn beautiful and absolutely worth it. However, always have a couple of days extra on your hand if you are applying for leave from your office.
