Offbeat place 4: Char Dukan -
Day-2 Agenda was very clear, I have to visit Landour & have waffle at Char Dukan. From Day-1 I started collecting information about how to visit Landour from Mall road and apparently was bit shocked to hear cab prices offered by my hotel.Thankfully one of the drivers of the hotel shuttle told me that it is at a walking distance and I dont need a cab to reach Landour, however to reach Char Dukan you can board a cab from Picture Palace which will charge not more than 300 Rs. So after walking for almost 4kms I reach Picture Palace and as instructed by my driver I got a cab for drop. Driver was very entertaining and he showed me Ruskin Bond's residence on the way to Char Dukan. Char Dukan is basically famous for 4 shops selling fast food like Maggi, Waffle & Pancakes and Cafe Ivy & a Church. From Char Dukan one can take a walk to Lal Tibba which also offers mesmerising views of the valley. After having a mini meal & offering my prayers at Church. I took a drop to Picture Palace and walked backwards towards my hotel. The entire walking part was an experience, you get familiar with city routes, shop wherever you want and eat local on the go. Locals were helpful and help me navigating my way.
