Journey from Shimla was way too swift. Roads are very well maintained that take you through Kufri, Theog to Chaupal. Our first destination was Chaupal. There we had a plan to stay for 2 days and attend a marriage nearby as well. This was my very first time attending a Himachali Marriage too, so I was bit excited. It took us almost 4 hours to reach Chaupal. Roads before 20 kms to Chaupal were in their worst condition. When I asked my sister about the reason, she replied that it happens due to the snowfall. At that point, I convinced myself, else I was ready to have an argument on the ruling political party 😀
Bubbling on those almost unpaved roads, we managed to reach Chaupal finally. I was little frustrated though, and my car had nearly lost things which has to be repaired next. We looked for a repair shop in Chaupal and got front Bumber repaired.
After reaching home, I took bed rest for another 1 hour. Since I was not prepared to sleep, but get out and have a glance on everything. I took out my camera and get out to the balcony. I was staring at a weird building, which was confusing me with a red temple flag on it. I asked uncle about that and he confirmed that its a temple. I was watching temple with such design first ever in my life. At first, I thought its a monastery!
This was totally different from what we see in Shimla or Solan. Purely Pahaadi!
