Day 1

CHANDIGARH-SOLAN-NAHAN

Me and my friend Rahul reached Chandigarh early in the morning by train and walked from railway station to Sukhna lake and then took a local bus till sector 43 bus stand.Took a Hrtc bus till Solan. Got my friend's bike from Solan and rode till Nahan. Stayed at my friend's house for the night.The Journey from solan to Nahan was full of twisty roads and deep Jungle.

Day 2

NAHAN-CHAKRATA

MY WILDLIFE ENCOUNTER-

Started early and rode till chakrata.We had bought our camping stuff and planed to camp overnight at a place called Chilmiri Top , which was a 5km uphill ride from chakrata.After having dinner next to camp we encountered a Himalayan Jaguar(after i searched internet,the thing we saw looked exactly like it).I had encountered wildlife previously and knew what to do in this situation.We immediately started a fire in the dry woods that we had collected and started the bike and made a lot of noise.But the beast kept coming back from time to time.Then we packed our stuff and went to Chakrata and luckily got a room at the Dak Bunglow for 200bucks.It was a really peaceful sleep that night.
