My trip started by boarding a Volvo from Vidhan Sabha Metro Station, Delhi to Aut, Himachal Pradesh. It was a Holiday Appeal Bus which cost us around 1200 bucks. The bus was more or less good, with clean blankets, seat covers. The only problem was leg space, but I guess no leg space is enough leg space anyday. The bus departed from Delhi at around 9 pm and reached Aut by 7.30 am, where few of my friends were waiting to join in.
After having paratha and chai near Aut bus stop, we boarded another bus (local bus) to Banjaar. Tickets are as cheap as 40 bucks, and we could not be happier. Thereafter, we reached Banjaar and took a shared taxi from Banjaar to Sojha, our final destination where we will be staying for the next two days. The cab took 100 bucks each, carrying 10 people in a tata sumo. And the best thing about this journey was, you get to see snow from here. And since it was my first time, I was super excited and amazed with the jaw dropping views all around.
Finally, we reached our homestay at Sojha- Firgun, a place located at the top of a mountain cliff. Here you can chill with some breathtaking views during the morning hours. In the evenings, once it gets too cold, you can sit inside the cafe and play board games or if you love reading, they have a wonderful collection of books as well. It's warm and cosy inside the cafe with good music and really delicious food! Aayush (owner of the homestay) and his team has been doing a wonderful job.
