I boarded the train to Delhi from Bhubaneswar. As the train was late by 5 hours , I missed my bus to Manali which I have booked through Red Bus app. I reached Delhi at 10:30 PM. From the Anand Vihar Railway Terminal , I directly went to ISBT Kashmeeri Gate and took a HRTC bus to Manali. I reached Manali on 8th March ( 3 :00 PM ) .
As I am zostel passport member , I have already decided to book my stay at Zostel Manali. I took a cab from Volvo bus stand to zostel. Zostel is located in the Manu temple road under the foothills of the Mighty Himalayas. The setting of the hostel was awesome . Met a lot of solo travellers there. I along with some of the travellers went to visit the Manu Temple which was just half a km and then had our dinner at a cafe named the lazy dog. We can certainly see the snowclad mountains all around the place. We returned back to our zostel doorms and had a lite activity session there . At night we had some wine just beside the foothills of the mountain and then went back to sleep afterwards .
