Dehradun– Rishikesh – New Tehri – Chamba – Dhanaulti – Mussoorie – Dehradun
Me and my cousion Ravi decided a road trip to Tehri dam ..with his Avenger bike... we started our journey from Dehradun .Ravi rode the bike We reached Rishikesh at 10:30 AM . I asked Ravi if he was comfortable in riding the bike for a few more hours. Ravi as always said that he had no problem in riding and could do that for hours to come. We both decided to ride for about 85-90 KM further on the hills towards New Tehri to have a look at the Tehri Dam and the huge man made lake it had created. We reached New Tehri at around 1:00 PM. It was a beautiful day. We spent about an hour at New Tehri and i clicked a few pictures. And then,Instead of going back to Rishikesh we decided to carry on with our journey further towards Chamba and then towards Mussoorie.
We had our lunch at Chamba and rode further towards Dhanolti. A few kilometers before Dhanolti we stopped at a place called Kanataal. There is no actual taal over there but it was an amazing place with a breathtaking view of the snowcapped Himalayas. We spent more than an hour there.Then we started our journey again.We reached Mussoorie at around 5:30 PM, then head towards Dehradun.We reached Dehradun at around 6:45 PM..
What a fantastic trip it was!
