On this trip, we traveled from Delhi-Tosh-Kutla-Kasol-Manali-Delhi. The group consisted of 4 people.
We started our journey from Delhi to enjoy the New Year. What laid ahead was completely unexpected as we had planned little and that kept the whole journey full of excitement.
We left Delhi on 28th December which was the coldest day recorded this year and that was just an indication of what was ahead. We took Volvo Bus from Delhi to Bhuntar for our journey in the Parvati Valley.
The bus journey was as usual but around 1 am at the night, we were around the outskirts of Chandigarh and then the weather truly showed its colours. It was so heavy fog and smog that it turned almost to zero visibility. Our bus driver though expert was tense too. We were driving slow and the highways were empty. Everyone in the bus was awake and their eyes stuck to the windshield where they weren't able to see a thing. This went on for a few minutes, everyone on the bus was buzzing about their decision to travel in this time of the year, questioning the trip at the start itself and then Bam...!!!
We struck a circle at the four-way crossing, impact not that hard but enough to make few people fell from their seats. The right bumper of the bus was gone, few cars too were taken down at the very spot before us.
The rest of the journey was as usual but people still remained awake with their eyes stuck to the road.
