It was a sudden plan amongst 4 friends to be out on a journey for the month of june. We desperately wanted to save ourselves from scorching Delhi heat and release the corporate frustrations.
One of our friend stringed a condition to the trip of not asking the location name. So we didnot have any clue where we were heading.
For the 4days trip we got car and driver ready collected enough cash to survive for 4days, and commenced the journey at mid-afternoon from Delhi driving towards Chandigarh highway.
It took 2hours for us to leave New Delhi behind. On reaching out to near to Sonipat we decided to take a change-over at Murthal. Quenched the thirst with Punjabi lassi/famous Kingsize parantha for 4 and we were done.
Now, we drove straight through the Chandigarh greenery towards Ponta Sahib. Since driver didnot wanted a night over driving leason; he stepped on it and took a relaxing breathe after reaching there by evening time.
Reaching and deciding to visit Ponta Sahib was really a brave idea to shed off 20% of the stress.
We again started on driving from Ponta Sahib, crossing the city-view and realising it to be fading towards calm, relaxing, hassle-free driver. We took left turn from Chandigarh-Ponta Sahib damp towards jungle road.
Being careful with the steering and accelerator and clutch as per disclaimer of having wild animals on road; we drove through. Gradually we were increase the height and gradually we were submerged in the beauty of the nature. It was suppose to take 6hours for travel through to destination Chakrata from New Delhi. But we extended it to 8hrs successfully with full happy intention.
The day 1 ended amidst the silvery covered ora of full moon on the high rise and chilling windy night mesmerized enchanting beauty.
