WRITER'S RETREAT, SHANGARH (HIMACHAL PRADESH)
Dates: May 12th - 14th
March 4th, Saturday: Land in Chandigarh by 7:30pm, reach the designated bus stop and then board the volvo bus for an overnight journey to Tirthan. O/N AC volvo bus
March 5th, Sunday: Arrive in Tirthan by morning. Freshen up and head to Jalori Pass. The drive will start to unfold the forests in front of your eyes. From Jalori Pass we shall commence our trek to Seroslar Lake. It is a beginner level trek and we shall make our way while breathing in the scent of pine trees and new friendships. En route relish some pahado waali Maggie and arrive at a strikingly pretty lake cocooned amidst dense forests. Seroslar is at an altitude of 10,170 ft., protected by the jungle and shrouded in mythological mystery. O/N Tirthan
March 6th, Monday: This morning we’re going to take you to witness the Himachali village life. We’re doing a short hike to Chaini Kothi – a historical tower that has for centuries been revered by the locals. It’s one of the tallest ancient structures across the region! Interact with the locals, play a game with a kid, pet a furry dog – this is the escape that you needed from your city life. In season one can even spot some blossoms along the way, so, tell me, are you feeling lucky? 😉 O/N Tirthan
March 7th, Tuesday: Is it the last day already? Well, we are going to make it a power-packed one! Since it’s chotti Holi we’re going to be unleashing all the colours and playing with our new friends. Colours, water… eggs? Whoops, are you ready for the madness? :p
Next we’re taking you to a secret pond (an MM&Co. special) – this offbeat gem is tucked between cave like structures and covers a deliciously blue pool of water! Unknown to many, we’ll be spending some time here. Take a moment for yourself, maybe a water fight may erupt, maybe there’s we’ll break into dance! It’s your last day, live every moment of it.
Evening, we hop on a volvo back to Chandigarh. March 8th, Wednesday: Catch your flight to your home city any time after 8am(flight details at the end). You’re back home in time to be well rested before resuming work next day! Hugs and goodbyes with the promise of meeting again soon.
