Barot is a small village situated in the Mandi District of Himachal Pradesh. It is hub for iconic beauty which includes Uhl River, mountains, trekking, camping and fishing. Valley offers unforgettable moments for travelers in thirst of adventure.
We (I and two of my friends) were searching for a peaceful place for spending Diwali weekend and we came across this place. Without searching a lot about the place, we took a bus and headed to Mandi from Delhi. HRTC (Himachal Roadways) buses are available round the clock from Delhi and a volvo ticket costs Rs. 1200 whereas Normal is for Rs. 580. We took a normal one. As soon as we left Delhi a feeling of better and peaceful environment started entering in our nerves.
At around 11 in the morning we arrived Mandi, then enquired about the buses to our next stop i.e. Ghatasani in the Mandi-Pathankot National Highway. Ghatasani is 40 kilometres from Mandi, journey takes around 3 hours and bus fare is Rs. 80. After reaching Ghatasani we were very hungry and were in hunt of food. We found this Chauhar Valley Bhojnalay in Ghatasani which was providing full meal for just 50 bucks with rajma, chana masala, different pulses, kadhi and chawal. Food was so yum, price was so low and owner was so kind which made start of our trip so exciting. Our stomach was full and literary we were not in a mood to move but thrill of upcoming journey was making us move.
