This is going to be more of a photologue than a travelogue. However, I will write wherever required.
This was a very long pending trip to Manikaran/Kasol. My parent’s court holidays came and got over. They kept asking me if I can manage to under-take this trip but I could not. Post their holidays I decided to take some off and have this small 2 day trip.
We left Noida on saturday morning at 5am. Our first halt was at Sukhdev for our driver’s B’fast and our morning tea. After that we stopped at Panipat for tyre change due to puncture. To get the punctured tyre fix we then stopped at Banur at 10:15am. Then straight away we stopped at Swarghat for lunch at 1:00pm. The roads were in pretty bad shape in Bilaspur. Then our next halt was at somewhere before Sundernagar for tea at around 4:15pm. The rain was with us in on/off mode from Bilaspur. So the weather was beautiful through-out the journey till Kasol. Then another tea break before Pandoh Dam at 5:48pm. At a view point where torrential water was coming out from dam. By 7:34pm we were at Bhuntar and I stopped to capture the view of Bhuntar and river Beas flowing below the bridge with flow of water being so fast that the water droplets were floating all over the river surface creating a magical view like fog over the water.
