The next stop was a small waterfall named Panchpula. We did not expect a lot from the place but we were in for a surprise.
We had to climb a few stairs to reach the waterfall. The waterfall was a small one but the ambience and the place around it was very serene. The place was dotted with few cafes which offered Maggi, snacks and hokaah! We settled down there for an hour and enjoyed the ambience with Maggi and Hokaah. The price was also very cheap and I would reccomend Shiva Cafe-Chillout if you ever visit there. After spending some time in a reflected mood within the nature we decided to return.
We reached back Dalhousie around 6 PM and had a few hours to kill so decided to visit Gandhi Market so our Cab dropped us there and took his payment.
Gandhi Market is a small local market with shops having all kind of food and memorabilia. The name of the market is justified by two Gandhi Statues at the centre of the Chowk. We ate in a small restaurant named Ravi Cafe near the next chowk named as Subhash Chandra Bose Chowk. One must try out Crispy Chicken and Momos there. It was delicious.
Then we walked down towards the Bus Stand which was about 2 kms from Gandhi Market. We viewed the sunset behind Pir Panjal Range while returning.
We boarded the bus at 8.30 PM. Tired yet replenished. We reached Delhi at 8 AM early Monday morning. This was my first Himachal trip and was not sure whether I would enjoy the hectic schedule as it was just for a day, but I would definitely say, it was worth it.
