Trip to Manila – A Photo Tale

0

Driving down to Manila – Munsiyari on a new year’s eve. How’s that for a drive to end the year?? Well, “Hell-o-Yeah” was the answer from my friends and my wife !! Nine days and we will be driving through the lush green jungles of Kumaon and to the deepest corner of India adjoining Nepal. I know it has been long time but like we say, better late than never. Today I will start this photo tale of my trip to Kumaon done in December 2014. Yeah, you read it right and please forgive me for being so late 😀 😀 … It will be a photo tale but feel free to share or post any questions in case you have any for planning a trip to Kumaon.

Day 1 was all about driving through the dense fog of Delhi/NCR and bad roads through Jim Corbett to an offbeat place located in Ranikhet region of Kumaon called Manila. Drive was not so hard and We started at 6.30 AM and ended at 3.30 PM. It was enough for us to witness the magical sunset over the mighty Himalayan range visible from Manila. I have written a detailed travel guide on Manila and you can refer it at: http://devilonwheels.com/manila-kumaon-offbeat-place-in-uttarakhand-near-delhi/ Manila – Kumaon, A Lesser Known Offbeat Place in Uttarakhand near Delhi. We started the drive from Delhi – Moradabad – Kashipur – Jim Corbett – Mohaan – Marchula – Maulikhal – Manila. Stayed at KMVN Rest House at Manila. Mohaan to Manila is 60 km. Route is Mohaan – Marchula (14 KM) – Maulikhal (35 KM) – Dotiyal (51 KM) – Manila (60 KM). Delhi to Manila is 365 KMs.

Here are the pictures from our first day of the trip to Munsiyari – Dharchula – Chaukori
