We started from Chandigarh and lead an overnight journey to Gushaini(tirthan valley). It is around 300km drive from chandigath. To reach there, one has to take a right detour before the Pandoh tunnel at Aut, an hour before Kullu on the Manali highway from Chandigarh. From Aut it is 26 kms of a pleasant drive along the river via Larji bypassing Banjar on the way to Gushaini. The best part about a Himalayan drive is the quaint charm you discover between villages and on this road the villages are small but beautiful. After freshening-up and relaxing at mud house we stayed in for some time gear towards a short hike to an awesome waterfall nearby which is 3-5 km uphill trek from gushaini. The waterfall was not roaring as it usually does. It’s not a high or wide waterfall…. Just a waterfall hidden inside a valley covered with slush green forest. Adventure lovers can try their hands on water rappelling under the waterfall. This was the real thing we needed and looked for. There was no one around us since the time we reached at waterfall till we returned back. For those 4-5 hours that place was mine as I could feel that way.
By the evening we returned back to our stay which was located at riverside. Flowing water always inspire me to travel as the river is a true traveller. The moment she incepts, she starts flowing with her full breath. Even the giant rocks can’t block her passage; instead, they are thrashed away by her tenacity... The river keeps on flowing, mingling with different soils, giving birth to new life, crossing every barrier before it falls in the sea or ocean i.e. she reaches her destination... AMAZING TRUTH. In the evening, bonfire is one awesome thing one can enjoy at this place.
