Bike trip to Manali and Kasol

4th Sep 2018
Day 1

We took a bike on rent from Chandigarh in morning and we headed towards Chandigarh.
Enroute we had our lunch In Mandi. Aslo we visited the Gurudwara in Mandi. The road from Bhuntar to kullu is very mesmerising. The beauty of mountains and the beas river flowing through the laps of himalayas makes you fall in love with it. We reached kullu around 3.30 pm and took a bypass road to Manali. We reached Manali at around 5 pm, checked in to our hotel and crashed on our beds as we were dead tired.

Day 2

Early morning we had our breakfast and headed to Solang valley. Solang valley has variety of games and adventourous activities for you. Paragliding is what I preferred. Paragliding charges differ for different heights and the month you are travelling in. Paragliding was hell lot of fun. You could see yourself above the world. The snow covered mountains, the tall trees add up to the beauty.
The ride was for around 7-8 minutes. After that we proceeded to mall road for Lunch. We opted for local street food. The gulabjamuns are a must try over here. Post the lunch we headed to Hadimba temple and Vashisht kund. In the evening, the mall road lits up to its atmost beauty. We were back to hotel and had some Antakshari time and then fall asleep.

Day 3

This morning we had our breakfast and proceeded towards kasol. Enroute we visited Naggar castle and also experienced river rafting in Kullu. We reached kasol around 3 pm and rested till the sun was down. By 7 we visited the Kasol market. Kasol is also know as "Mini Israel of India". You can find lots of foriegners chilling here than in Manali. This place is famous for it's rave parties. We ended our day with sumptous street food here in Kasol market.

Day 4

This morning we went to Gurdwara Manikaran Sahib, a mere 20-min drive from Kasol, which is also popular for its hot water springs. We took a dip in those springs. And had our lunch in the Langar. We returned back to hotel for rest as we were going to have a very long day ahead

Day 5

This morning we started for kheerganga trekk. This trekk is a must do once in a life. It thrills you and also soothens your mind and rejuvenates your body. As said, "The best view comes after the hardest climb." The view here makes you feel like you are in the heaven. Though we were totally drenched by walking around whole day,but this trekk gave us different meanings to see your life.

Day 6

We left kasol after the lunch and headed to Amritsar. We reached hotel by 7 pm and had our dinner. As our hotel was near to golden temple, we went out to have a glimpse of golden temple at night.

Day 7

We checked out from the hotel and boarded the train back home. Here ended the trip with wonderful memories.
