I always have this inside me -non stop craving to go to the mountains. Initially we though of going to Rajasthan, then vietnam but I guess my heart always said - Mountains in himachal!! Oh lord, I can never get over this. I did this trip 8 years back in 2010 and this time in Dec 2018. It is one of the best trips as always but this one was as amazing as the rest.

We started our trip as Bangalore (my work place) to Dharamshala by Flight and then the road trip as Dharamshala - Mcleodgunj - Camp lungta - Khajjiar- Dalhousie - Chandigarh (my home)

Here is a quick snapshot of how it looks and how and where all can you plan this- the trip had it all : Local experience, Tibetan feels (my peace, my happy place), Dalai lama temple, treks, pubs with punjabi DJ crazy nights, camping, mountains, cafes, chai, SNOW and those snow mountains you will only get to see in Dalhousie. #bestofthecafes

Trip started on a beautiful note with snow clad mountains welcoming us! We took a flight from bangalore to Dharamshala directly and believe me its the best decision ever. A beautiful morning at 7 at gaggal airport gives you all the goosbumps and tickles you need from the monotonous city life.

Have lunch at this pub in a small town Mcleodgunj! Trust me you will forget all the big brewery and pubs in Bangalore. Must visit for a saturday night for exclusive Punjabi DJ in the house #blackmagic Shop on the streets of Tibetan Mini market for local shopping, do buy the tibetan flags for gifting

Day 5
Guys!! last but not the least!! I can spend hours here..Its a cafe you cant miss when you are dalhousie! You will definitely regret if you skip this. The best cafe, they make bonfire, at any time of the day. The best of luxury hotels cant provide the warm of services you experience here!

Tadaa! until next tym!! Hope you enjoyed!!
