All I hear on weekends where to go , mostly I hear about Manali. Manali is an amazing place but this time I decided to go somewhere else and explore Himachal a little more. I was always attracted to Jalori Pass, for no reason. I always felt that attraction or zeal to be there, may be due to lush green trees to be seen in Spring or dry snow to be seen in Winters! So, there I go.
The plan was one day in Tirthan Valley, another day Jalori Pass and then Chehni Village. I had a rough itineary in my mind. All I knew, I wanted to go. While planning long weekends, you really need to plan, so me and a friend(who appeared at the last moment to join me) booked our busses and stay. We booked bus to Aut.
How to reach : From Delhi, we can take an overnight bus to Aut. Mostly the buses which go to Manali has a stop in Aut. It's again a beautiful to stroll around. We can get an easy bus from Aut to Banjar. We stayed in "Sidhwan" which is a KM away from Banjar.
Where to Stay : Although, we had pre booked our stay and stay was pretty good in the "Hotel MaanSarovar", I realised, we could have booked a homestay somewhere in Jibhi or even up towards Jalori Pass. There are many homesteads which are not available online and since this is not the season, they are easily available with an expense of 700-800 rs per night or even less. It was cold somewhere -10 to 3 deg but since there was good Sunlight, we didn't feel much cold.
