it was 8:am and we were on our way to bilaspur (a small town on the way) and bam the bus broke.... ????
Everybody in the bus was waiting for the miracle of repair to happen...meanwhile I was just getting my eyes open as i could not sleep last night...it had just started to rain and we were already running almost 3-4 hours late.. everybody just came out looking for options to move forward.
fortunately 6 (me and my new friends) of us managed to convince a passerby to drop us till bilaspur. he told us we could get bus from there to reach Mandi and eventually bhunter.
So after a 3 long bumpy rides from bilaspur, sundernagar and Mandi we finally managed to reach bhunter.
then we headed towards parvati valley!(bhunter is the point on the Delhi-kullu highway to divert towards parvati valley)
It was again a 2hour bumpy ride towards kasol but the view! totally worth it..
It was time to part ways from the new friends at kasol... I had decided to move ahead towards barshaini and they decided to stay at kasol due to rain and other stuff...
the rain did not bother me much.. i took a bus towards barshaini.. daylight was going shallow and views scary... The parvati river flows by you side during the whole ride and makes it totally worthwhile...
It was 6:30pm and after a long ride of almost 20-21 hours I was finally at barshaini..
Barshaini is a small setting at the top of parvati valley and the starting point of kheerganga trek. (p.s. you can also choose to stay at tosh, its almost an hour journey from barshaini on foot and you can also hire taxi/cab for the same)
Got myself a room at the only general store owner's property. There arent much options to stay at barshaini so I just took the first shot and decided to stay.. the room was overlooking the valley, amazing views.
