Many of us dreamt about going on a long trip with friends. This trip has changed a lot of things and one of the major change was "Friends became Family".
This was 10days long journey from Pune.
The route for the day was Pune-Mumbai-Amritsar.
The longest time I have ever been in train till date. It took us 2 days to reach Amritsar. But no one was bored as everyone was dancing singing. "A journey is best measured in friends, not in miles" this trip has proved this quote for me. We reached Amritsar at 6pm. We started taking videos and asking everyone about the journey till now and how they are feeling. And trust me on this when you will look back these videos after some years it will be worth shooting those.
We quickly went to hotel to freshen up and then went to Golden Temple.
The place where every Indian feels proud to be an Indian.
Girls should not miss the chance of dancing on the India-Pakistan border, nothing can beat that feeling.
After wagha border we headed towards hotel and then left for overnight journey to Manali.
On the way to Manali we stopped at Kullu. There is River Rafting point in Kullu. Going for River Rafting in Kullu is a bit different because of the temperature. The temperature was 2-3 degrees at that time. Cold temperature cold water and river rafting without sweaters too much adventure.
This was one hell of a experience. After coming back from rafting we couldn't feel our hands. We couldn't even pick a coffee mug.
After this adventurous thing we did we left for Manali.
We reached Manali in the Afternoon. As per our plan we had to just rest that day but we decided to go for shopping. We took a local bus. It dropped us to Mall road and then everyone was busy shopping. To go back to the hotel we couldn't find any bus. There are jeeps outside the Mall road which will drop you to the location but they are too costly. As we had no choice we took the Jeep.
Our plan was to go to Rohtang pass but unfortunately the roads were closed. So we decided to go to Solang Valley.
In Solang Valley you can do Skiing, off road biking.
The bikes will take you up on the hill where you can do Skiing. The view on the way is breathtaking. And the most important thing "SNOWFALL" first snowfall of my life.
After this mesmerizing experience we left for the hotel and after dinner we started our overnight journey to Chandigarh.
We reached Chandigarh in the morning. After breakfast we went to Rock Garden. After roaming so much in rock garden we went for some shopping.
And then this beautiful journey came to an end. We started from Chandigarh then Delhi and then finally Pune. No one slept in the return journey. Throughout the way we played cards, dumb charades and danced. I must say train journey with friends is so much fun.
P.S. The hotel we stayed in Chandigarh was HAUNTED as they say :-P
