Day 10

Neugal is a mountain stream, locally called as khud, that you must visit. Spend time relaxing on big boulders while dipping your feet in the water. Basking in the warm sunshine is something I enjoyed the most here. To reach this stream you have to cross an old hanging bridge and it’s an experience in itself. Once you are refreshed by the cool pure air and warm sunrays, head to Neugal Café for some refreshments. Though the cost is on the higher side, the view of the Dhauladhar range that you get from the cafe is worth sitting here for at least a cup of tea and some pakoras
