Day 1

Yesterday only, we were thinking of going somewhere during these summer vacations.
Then suddenly, we concluded and started packing for dharamshala. This is the most unexpected trip i ever had.
We did some bookings for hotels after finalizing the itinerary.
And today, we took a bus from delhi to dharamshala.
We will reach by tomorrow morning.

These mighty mountains. Their beauty and the view. I m in love with this place already.

Dharamshala is the best kept and most beautiful hill station in my opinion. This is not so crowded and is full of happy souls.

A much needed halt. Bus journeys could be tiresome, even if u opt for deluxe buses.

We have finally reached the place. And are waiting for our room to get ready. We stayed in oyo room, which is really close to the bus stand and had some breakfast.
Today, we saw

This place has a lot of shops, u can shop little pretty things, have some ice cream and enjoy maggi.

Day 3

Bir billing is very much close to the place. You can obviously opt for it if u r an adventure freak. We opted to explore kangra valley. There, we explored kangra fort and 5 devi temples.
We are there in the month of june. So it was really hot till afternoon but the weather get pleasant after rain.

A long route to chintpurni mandir. The route is bit long but save your walk towards the main temple.

Day 4

Done with HP now. We still had a day to spend. So we planned to go amritsar, punjab. We took a bus early in the morning which go directly to amritsar. Or there is an option to take a bus to pathankot first and then to amritsar.
We reached there by 10 am, found an accomodation, had famous parathas of amritsar, shopped for some phulkari dupattas and then straight away to wagah border. We reached there at 3 and it was already full. We really struggled to find a good space for us. The ceremony started at 5. Since we had only a day, we could only see wagah border ceremony and golden temple.

Day 5

Packing all the memories into our heads and capturing all the moments in our cameras, we headed towards our home. Had our breakfast and took our train to delhi.
The trip had so much happiness and experiences. Obviously there are many things that we left and could not see but we enjoyed what we got to explore.
A trip all about capturing memories and experiences, u can never forget in your lifetime.
