The joy of company--
We reached Ambala Cantt. and boarded Bus,
Well, we reached Manali, a little late than scheduled. Excited to settle in my room at Hotel Trishul, I ran into Deepti and Neha – two solo female travelers, and my roommates for the trip. We immediately struck a chord and in no time, they became like a long-lost friend to me.
As the day proceeded, we were taken to the mesmerizing Hadimba Temple. Embraced in an array of tall Deodar trees, and with mountains in the backdrop — the temple was quite a spectacle to look at. We roamed around the temple and befriended some other group-mates.
Our soulful visit to the temple found a perfect contrast in the night’s revelries. Aparty scene was set, to mark the beginning of the New Year. The DJ was on, dance was in full swing, and a cake was cut. Everyone was colored in the spirit of joy. With so much energy in the air, the night was a full-on blast.
