We woke up at around 9 am as the sun rises early in the hills.
Went for our morning tea at a small cafe just before panchtara hotel, just before the Chala bridge. This place serves good breakfast and is pocket friendly also.
(Cost for 2 approx 300-400rs)
After a small stroll and a few shopping we got ready picked up our bags and went to explore ,
GURUDWARA MANIKARAN SAHAB was our next stop to have a hot water bath, the gurudawar has 24x7 service of hot water as just below the gurudwara there is a natural hot water spring, and the people there have diverted a small amount of water.
The gurudwara also has a hot cave which you can take a small walk through if not claustrophobic.
We all were a little hungry after having a thorough bath , what can be better than the Langer , dal roti chawal sabji and the halwa.
Our stay for today was KALGA VILLAGE,
We took a bus from manikaran to barshaini, this is the last stop, ahead of this it is a 10 min walk to the tosh dam , from there it's a 10-15 min hike to kalga village.
We stayed the night at gypsy house which is at the very end of kalga , the room rent was 500rs for one spacious room which can fit around 4 people.
The view from the village is just breath taking, the night sky full of stars is just amazing.
We played music on our devices, the home stay people made a small bonfire for us, we all had rum as it was cold , had a chillum or two and slept for the night.
The approximate cost for stay in kalga for two people inclusive of travel and food was 1500rs for two people.
