The journey started again and we finally arrived at Dalhousie at 1. Though delayed than what we expected, but the beautiful lush and green mountains on our sides made our journey enjoyable.
We took a cab from Dalhousie bus stand to Zostel (300 se jyada mat dena cab wale ko) and the staff was so welcoming and check-in was done in minutes. We got our beds and learned about Dalhousie from the staff.
Since we were tired by this long journey, we decided to take it easy today and plan a trek only for Day 3. We retired to our rooms and got to the balcony with a view worth dying for.
It filled us up again with energy and we decided to get some food. Zostels own restaurant serves good food. The restaurant is combined with a common area where some guys were playing bluff. We had our meals and joined them in the common area while sipping some lassi.
These guys had come for a day to Dalhousie and today was there 4th day and had decided to leave today, finally! As we didn't have any plans for today, Zostel staff offered us a guided evening walk towards the village. We retired back to our rooms, took a nap and bathed and left for a walk. A simple walk in Dalhousie with no expectations was amazing.
We got back to zostel at 7:30 and luckily a guy was leaving for bus stand and he dropped us to Mall road.
And at the mall road, we tried getting some Kashmiri work suit material but couldn't I get what I was looking for. I bought a Pashmena stole cor Rs 500 for my Mom and my friend liked few materials and bought them for upcoming Rakshabandhan to guft his sisters.
Then we had our dinner at Sher-e-punjab which we didn't like at all and had to unwilling waste some food and then we had some momos which were ok for the price. And then we headed back to Zostel. We already had a cab waiting for us, and reached Zostel in 20 mins, eagerly looking out of cab and trying to spot a bear as we had a lots of stories since we reached here but with no luck.
And once back at hostel, the common area was already dead. With the help of manager (Raman) we tried to bring it back to life and started playing Uno.
