One who lives,sees much.One who travels, sees more.
Himachal Pradesh was always a dream destination and to start of my first North Indian trip, the excitement of visiting the snow clad mountains and picturesque journey through the valley had made me impatient to explore the northern part of India. While just like any other middle class Indian fighting for financial independence and survival, these big trips happens only after a lot of cancellation, savings, and the most important getting leaves approved. Finally on February 2015 I, Murali Raj, Santhosh Kumar, took the flight to Chandigarh,it certainly gave me an unmatched experience,made me realize that when you travel there is always a little of that place which becomes a part of you.
Shimla, capital of Himachal Pradesh is a place everybody wants to visit, it is for this very reason it is called as the queen of Hill stations. We took the bus from Chandigarh to Shimla and our ride was the Himachal Pradesh Road Transport corporation bus. Well it was this average bus, the bus made me think if it will ever make it to Shimla in one piece and like my instincts, the bus did make it to the destination, with a break down and some pushing. Well boy was Shimla worth this treacherous travel hell yeah it was, we saw the snow clad mountains for the first time. We hired a local taxi for sightseeing and the drive to Kufri was dream, sulking in the feeling of seeing the pine trees, snow on either side of road, sipping the hot tea at the roadside joints, the feeling of harsh cold winds making your face numb was just the ideal start for our journey.
