It’s more than a year that travel bug bit us. Since then there has been no looking back. Well, this time Tridib and I were eagerly waiting for winters to experience snowfall for the first time.
So what better place than a trip to Narkanda in the long weekend of New Year. Narkanda is 65kms from Shimla and can be easily accessed by cars, cabs and HPTC buses.
But unfortunately, it did not snow in Shimla at that time of the year. Since all the bookings were previously done, we went ahead as planned.
Before starting, let me tell you one thing, Narkanda is no more an offbeat destination. In India, you cannot just run away from the claustrophobic atmosphere.
Another reason for Narkanda being crowded was it snowed there 15 days before the New Year. Like us, everyone wanted to experience the snow and you cannot blame people, after all, who don’t want to escape from the maddening crowd in the national capital.
Like I said it snowed in Narkanda in the past fortnight, the entire Shimla crowd gathered there for the extended weekend break.
