    Default A Dream Ride to Sangla Valley and Jalori Pass....

    I am a lazy guy and I am a equally lazy writer. I can talk whole day but can't write the same way. I am not new to touring as I have been to mussoorie, dalhousie, mcleod ganj, Dharamshala, khajjiar etc by car but it was time fulfill my pending dream.

    Well, this trip wasn't planned in advance. Three of us were having coffee at office and suddenly idea of touring on our bikes pops up in our minds. As a result we decided to enjoy the weather of Narkanda and after reaching narkanda we were like "sher ks mu pe khoon lag gaya hai ab aise waapis nahi jayenge" and that's where sangla valley came into the picture. Our journey was full of adventure because of bad planning and as a result of bad planning we had to cover the most stretches in night. We reached sangla at 9pm and jalori pass at 8pm. It was the most memorable tour of my life just because I was on bike this time. Beauty of sangla valley and jalori pass was simply awesome....

    We were in a group of 3 riders:

    1. Naveen
    2. Deepak
    3. Shravan

    DAY 1: Delhi to Shimla
    we started at around 5:30 from delhi and we were there at shimla around 2:00pm which includes heavy traffic in panchkula and shimla itself.

    Is that Hatu temple? Looks good. It was under construction when I visited. Hope the road is not widended. The location is pristine as it's bit difficult to reach there. Anyway, continue please.

    yeah...its hatu temple and yes roads are still the same in width but according to me they are good enough for bike riders....problem occurs only when car drivers drive irresponsibly....
