Dear All, We would like to thank every individual who directly or Indirectly help us in this Memorable journey of Himachal with Jazz holidays. Now I will narrate my story of Himachal Tour We started late from Delhi due to delayed flights which land us in Shimla 1:30 am. In this start, our driver Narendra Patiyalji gave us information about the in between places and Girish from Jazz was constantly in touch. The journey was safe as we realized now but for us that was the biggest night with so much twists & turns thanks to Mr Vishal who helped us out in such a way that we felt as if he is with us good & strong contacts he has i must sayHowever the Golf link staff was so adorable, who had already provided us> with Dinner which was the necessity after travelling a lot. We were the> only Guests for them so we got royal treatment in Shimla. We had a great time The next day, Kesari troops came to Golf link Still the staff treated us as a special guests. They truly set the example> of Nice rooms with excellent hospitality. We were so happy to met so good & helping people in Shimla.Next destination was Manikaran. We were again on road travelling from Shimla to Manikaran. Roads were not so good due to heavy snowfall. Still we were progressing in our journey. We passed Kullu and on the way to Manikaran met with huge land slide in front of our car. The road got
blocked. Actually we went to Shimla to enjoy snow fall. It was snowing heavily but we were not in the mood to enjoy.Taking reverse on that road was so dangerous. We had a booking in Manikaran Sandya Palace & Manali Sandhya So we inform Girish about the situation. Hesome how managed our stay in Manali. We were leading to manali after crossing kullu again. After around 5-10 km, our car skid and just saved from dashing to mountain.We were so scared of the way things were happening. The car was not moving it got stuck. So now we met another set of good people in our life. Himachal police came to our rescue. They all tried hard to get our car on the main road. We again started and then the wiper of the car broke down We were in front of R.K. Shwal Traders. Now we got totally stuck. Narenji told us that he wont go ahead now with broken wiper. And so I tried contacting all the possible persons. All were working hard to put us in the safe place. All possibilities were tried out. Then Girish told us to go backwards till Sandhya Palace Kullu. Till the time Road to kullu got blocked. We were in between Kullu & Manali. So we decided to stay in RK Traders. Empty mind is the devil's workshop. We both girls on our historical trip got stuck at the unknown place with the unknown people.We were scared but still determined to fight the situation. Those people gave us dinner which was cooked for the drivers. We had our last food in Golf link at around 8 AM. They gave us five blankets as we were shivering. We were not able to sleep due to fear but then due to tiredness we slept. In the morning those people gave us Tea and was not ready to take money offered by us as we stayed there and had food also. So now we met another set of good people whom we misjudged. Road to kullu was open and we headed to Kullu Sandya palce where we were not having any bookings. They welcomed us warm hearty. We visited Prati Vaishnodevi mandir. Had total rest for a day and then on the next day
> started for Manikaran again as road was open. We saw the road in day light. It was one of the risky road and may be God prohibited us from going there in that night. We had very nice Gurudwara darshan (1st Gurudwara in my life> ever visited) and enjoyed hot water springs. Saw Sandya Palace, Kasol which was so beautiful from outside but we couldn't stay there. And now we are again on our way to Manali We reached Manali at around 4:30 PM and then decided to stay back in Hotel.Once again Hotel staff greeted us with homely affection and again we were the only guests in hotel to get royal treatment. Had little bit shopping.
Next day our car broke down due to chilling cold. Temperature was around 5 degree C.Still as per the schedule we started for our Manali darshan. Due to heavy snow fall, we made our snowman in front of hotel. Hired new car for Hidima Mandir. Visited the Mandir. Had clicks in traditional Manli dress. Met our old kesari friends from shimla near the Mandir. And then it
started snowing. We enjoyed this snow thoroughly. Due to road blocking, we couldn't went for shopping again. We haven't seen so many things in Manali> as we were bit late And now we started for Chandigarh We reach Punjab with less cold as compare to Manali. Saw Sarsoke khet, Rock Garden & Rose garden. Visited Sector 17 for shopping as heard a lot about
it. And then next day back to Delhi In this whole journey, Jazz planned a very nice tour for us but unfortunately we missed some of the fun due to bad weather. We got accommodation in the hotel where we were not having any booking. All the sandya palace hotels are as described & as warm hearty. Met some of the nice people in our life. This journey was not all fun but yes the adventure to cherish in long way. Once again I will thank all the people for there support and co-operation to make this trip as a sucess Our best wishes for your further trips. Best Wishes, Veena & Barkha
