It was a 3 day trip with friends, and I reached Panchkula(adjacent to Chandigarh) on the morning of Day 1, which acted as a base location for us given both my travel partners hail from tri-city.
We had originally planned for a day trip each to Fagu and Chail, with return on third day. However, due to snowfall (and subsequent traffic) near former, we decided to drop the plan and find an alternative for Day 1. The good thing about Chandigarh is that there are plenty of options one can go for, and luckily we agreed upon Morni Hills- A quiet, peaceful getaway , approx. 30kms from Panchkula city.
One might think that given Morni hills fall in Haryana state, the ride uphill may not be as good as that in upper altitudes. Call it weather's play or our luck, but the drive was a complete delight- The cool breeze was giving us chills whenever we opened the windows or stepped out of the car for a small break, likely because it had rained heavily last evening and it rained again during the day. In-fact, we did stop multiple times to click few snaps and enjoy the weather- After all, as many have said already, journey is a thrill that is bigger than destination!
