Dalhousie - Winter Trip to Himachal Pradesh - December 2013
02 December, 2013
After spending the night at Pathankot station waiting area we decide to take a bus to Dalhousie. Since were four of us we inquired with the local cab stand located just outside the station, to our surprise they quoted about INR 3000 which was ridiculous considering it was barely 82 kilometers to Dalhousie.
After a leisurely 40 minutes morning walk to the bus stand we boarded the 6:30 am bus to Dalhousie @ INR 100 per head J
Reached Dalhousie at about 10:00 am and decided to stay at Hotel “Oak Valley” which as per our previous experience is reasonably priced and convenient being close to the bus stand. (INR 500 per day)
03 December, 2013 – Dalhousie
After we feasted on some Momos we came across this small shop selling all kinds of trinkets along with some fancy pickles and most interestingly some exquisite wine.
After dinner we enjoyed an exquisite tasting wine called Rhododendron wine which is made from rhododendron flowers – these plants are local to Nepal and Himachal Pradesh
