The long awaited weekend started as soon as the bus windows had a view of the mountain range early morning, experiencing the sunrise we all wait for in our mundane life.
I took a bus on a Friday night from Delhi till Bhuntar which was a 12 hour drive . A connecting bus till Kasol where the general hippie acts were done. From visiting the Chalal spots, having lunch at Evergreen cafe and eating deserts from the German bakery waiting for the next bus to Barshaini around 2 pm.
This time the plan was to explore a small village named PULGA which was situated uphill in the lap of FairyForests.
Pulga is a 2 hour trek from Barshaini and it is accessible only on foot. There are two ways to reach the village:
1. There exists well constructed lane from the dam which takes you straight to the village.
2. The second way is to climb the mountain which can be difficult in the monsoon season. The climb connects you to the point where the road ends and further is the way to enter the village.
Around 6pm in the evening after witnessing the sunset , I reached the very small village Pulga .
I planned on staying towards the end of the village and to the starting of the fairy forest.
After exploring for a while I took the decision of staying in a homestay called THE BABA’S CAFE.
The day ended with the delicious chicken cooked by Chandan one of the caretakers of the place and some beer.
