We reached rishikesh at 6:00 AM and it was cold. Walked to the nearby bus stand and investigated for bus for chamba. From rishikesh, one may take bus to chamba and then shared jeeps for Kanatal. Bus will cost you around 100 per head and local jeep costs 50 rs per head. Another option is hiring a personal taxi and enjoy space while running through beautiful roads. Due to construction of char dhaam project you have to bear some dusty and rough patches and they are quite manageable.
Listening to some really good music and spending some of the beautiful moments, we reached kanatal in 4 hours. Cab for one side will cost you around 3k rs.
We instantly found our pre booked resort, route 707, himalayan village. Some beautiful camps on the slope of Kaudia jungle, were just so amazing.
We decided to have rest for some hours. After lunch we roamed around the nearby places.
Places to visit include Surkanda devi temple, kaundi jungle trek, tehri dam.
Tehri dam is 22 km from kanatal and you need to have permits for visiting.
Night was really cold and beautiful. Towns lighten up and a mesmerising ocean of stars was lying in lap of himalayas. An evening spent well...
