Day 1

With so much of confusion before planning this trip. Whether to go for Nainital,  Mussoorie or some other hill station. We found Chakrata on our list. We decided to start our trip from Delhi around 7Am by Self driving 🚗.

We took the upper Ganga Canal road to reach upto kotdwar.

Day 3

A fresh day, We re-energized ourself for "Lakhamandal Shiva Temple". But it was raining 🌧 heavily but we decided to keep the plan on. We then took the ghat route and started moving towards the shiva temple.

On the way we got struck on a muddy road & with the help of locals we continued our journey.

We entered thru the clouds ☁️ & reached Lakhamandal.
