Bangalore – Delhi – Amritsar – Dharamshala – Mcleod Ganj – Kinnaur Valley – Spiti Valley i.e. Reckong Peo– Nako – Tabo – Kaza( #Langza – #Komic– #HikkimKey Monastery – Kibber- Chicham Bridge) – Reckong Peo – Kalpa- Narkanda – Kufri – Shimla – Chandigrah – Delhi – Bangalore.
I am on a budget travel trip so avoided luxuries and stayed, travelled in economical way.
My first destination is #Amritsar and here goes my travelogue, please read through and share your comments. Thank you in advance
I boarded my Indigo Flight from Bangalore on 20th Dec @11.30PM Reached by 21st Dec 2018 @2.10AM and the temperature was 5℃ at Delhi.
I had Shan- E- Punjab train reservation to Amritsar and the train starts from Delhi @ 6.40AM but I was skeptical if I can reach on time to witness peace retreat ceremony at WAGAH border. I didn’t want to miss the ceremony since it was on my bucket list for quite some time.
So I started checking out with the airport staff if I could get any bus to Amritsar during early hours of 3AM and the answer was no but Indo Canadian bus services carrier operates from 5.30AM @Delhi Airport terminal 1 which sounded great. With full josh I went to the bus stop to check with them if any seat is available and what's the price. i just turned back and headed to prepaid taxi counter to catch my pre-reserved train!!!! after knowing the price is ₹2200 for 1 seat in bus, wherein my train ticket cost me ₹180, that's crazy ain't it ? by the way I am on a “budget trip” :P so I chose Shan E Punjab
The train's scheduled arrival at Amritsar is 3.15PM and I was little worried if I could make it on time to the border. I boarded the train, which was on time and immediately dozed off due to my odd hour’s flight. Woke up after 3 hours for noise from my front seat and then I couldn't sleep due to this 8 years old Punjabi kid who was a live wire. This kid was singing, dancing, acting and screaming out loud :D but the co-passengers were enjoying, including me. Rest of my journey i passed my time with the kid- The Rockstar is the name I gave him , by the way this kid's favorite song is "Daaru Badnam"!!!Welcome to UDTA PUNJAB :)
