Frustrated from the chaos in my life, I decided to travel (as it's a best known therapy for me ), but the question was where ? I recalled my friend who lives in Shimla, asking to visit her place whenever I feel like and also Shimla was one of the destination I had put up in my travel bucket list. So, without having any second thoughts I called up my friend and said, " Hey, mountains are calling for a while now, I am coming !!!!".I finished all my work by Sunday , packed up my bag, charged my camera and left on Monday morning.
With the online booking service of HRTC, I was fortunate enough to book a window seat in Volvo (one can also get ticket on spot but there is no guarantee that you will get a window seat). By 7 in the morning, I started my journey towards, Shimla. I got my food packed in the night itself because I am too lazy to get down and eat at the stop. I reached Solan by 4 p.m., and from there my friends parents picked me up and we left for her place which is in Kadheri.
Solan is an urbanised area probably the reason it's hot. At 7 p.m we were in Kadheri and to my luck, my friends place was on the mountain with lush green garden and three 100 years old Pear trees surrounded by another series of mountains( you could literally see Shimla from there). I was like, I finally found my cabin in woods ( the only difference was it was on mountain).
The next day we left home in the afternoon and went for the trek in the nearby forests and covered the area known as Bhalawag, where we found a 200 years old well. What's interesting about this well is that its made of stones of exactly the same size by King of Keonthal State, Vijay Sen, hence it captured the attention of people living there. This place is a true heaven for scenic beauty lovers.
