DALHOUSIE, PIECE OF PARADISE

“Today the #XploreBharat Blog Train has come to Dalhousie on POSEINSTYLE BLOG from Guwahati . The next station is Gangtok on #XploreBharat Blog Train

In 2013 during summer vacations, we had planned our trip for Dalhousie and Khajiaar with family. We started our trip with Dalhousie and then it extended to Khajiyaar and Chamba temple.

Since it was a road trip and much-awaited summer break when kids wait for their final exams to get over and start planning for the places to chill out in summer vacations.

To visit a hill station always brings double happiness for us. Vacations at a hill station and to enjoy a break from ‘Delhi ki garmi’. But coming back from summer break back to Delhi always makes all very unhappy. Does that happens to you as well?

OUR JOURNEY BEGINS :

We were a group of 15 people and have hired a tempo traveler. We literally have enjoyed the road journey singing and dancing on Bollywood songs.

We stopped in between at dhaba for a tea break. It took almost 1 night and half a day to reach Dalhousie.
