We started early the next morning and arrived at the base before the sun turned savage. Going up took us about four hours with all the water breaks and photography stops. The return was quicker and lighter on my calf muscles. En route, we stopped for breakfast at Magic View cafe, the oldest chai shop on that trail. Zostel felt like home when we returned - a place that comprehended the heart of a traveler. After a wholesome lunch consisting of Paneer Butter Masala and Butter Roti, we picked up our bags from the storage room and trudged along the pine forests to the town square down below. Our trip was coming to a gradual close. There was still some time left and we wanted to make the most of it. The famous Bhagsu waterfall was just around the corner but my mate was in no condition to hike any further. Moreover, we had already created some terrific trekking memories to last a lifetime. So we decided to take it easy and go for a Tibetan massage instead. Easing into the evening, we indulged on a Chickonara thin crust pizza and Super Fudge Brownie at Jimmy's Italian Kitchen, overlooking the Kalachakra temple (Jimmy's is the non-veg counterpart of Nick's). I had been dreaming about chicken ever since the cold got to me at Triund! Before embarking on a local bus back to Dharamshala, I picked up some Tibetan massage oils and herbal tea from Men - Tsee - Khang, the largest and the oldest Sowa Rigpa institute in India, patronized by the Dalai Lama himself. The bus ride with the locals gave us a taste of the everyday life of the many men and women taking up day jobs in Mcleod Ganj and returning to Dharamshala at the end of the day. We boarded our Volvo sleeper back to Delhi at 6 pm near Maximus Mall in Dharamshala.
Apart from Tibetan and Bhutanese cuisines we also enjoyed the Italian food at the popular Jimmy’s Italian Kitchen. This Italian place is situated on Jogiwara Road near Namgyalma Stupa & Prayer Wheels.
