Whole Team clockwise order: Vikas, Paras, Me & Satnam!

Not much to write about day-1, as we spend most of time on plain road. Just one problem we face is Flat Tire in my bike. I had a flat tire before solan and i have to push bike for good 2 km in hills to find a Puncture Shop. It was too tiring.

After fixing it we land in SHIMLA after sunset, and to our suprise while shimla is celebrating DUSSHEHRA!

So we enjoy local market and crach land in guest house for rest at 10pm. T

Day-2
Shimla > Hatu Peak, Narkanda > Rampur Bushar
Second day we start early and leave shimla for Hatu Peak!
Road till narkanda are in pretty good shape and one can touch 90km on bike smoothly. after Narkanda you find a tri-tular road left one goes to rampur, middle one goes to Hatu temple and right one goes to village!

So we start from middle one to reach Hatu Peak, it is 7km steep trek from middle of Jungle. Road is not in good condition and has sharp slippery blind turns and it is also very narrow too even for bikes!

It took 1 hour to climb UP due to road conditions bu it is worth! Here re few pics!

Spend good 2 ours here and here then start decent towards the Nh-22, fill petrol in bikes here as there are very rare chances you find petrol in peo or rampur and also fill jerry canes.

Finally reached Rampur after driving mere 140km at 5:00pm. Find a hotel in maini market and did some walk in market.

Day-3
Rampur > Sarhan > Sangla > Chitkul > Peo


Third day is very enjoyable, as we see nature very closely. The kind of mountains and landscape we see during our journe from rampur to peo is speechless and breathtaking.
