An Icey Adventure : Reckong Peo

Quari Point , Kinnaur , Himachal Pradesh

An upcoming weekend which includes a national Holiday will always keep my mind preoccupied planning for a weekend escape, So with Himachal Day falling on 25th Jan followed by Republic Day on 26th and Sunday on 27th was sufficient to make me pack my bag and head towards a new adventure.

If you follow my blog , then must be aware that I love to explore and prefer offbeat travel always. Recong Peo was on my mind for long and i headed towards it.

I started from Chandigarh Bus Stand ( Sector 43 ISBT) on 24th Jan , time : 5:50 pm , bought tickets for Deluxe bus costing INR 750.

 Bus Timings: 5:50 pm , 6:00 pm & 7:00 pm          

Bus Fare: Deluxe Bus INR 750   , Non Deluxe: INR 315 

HRTC Chandigarh Sec-43 Contact No: 0172-2668943 for more details

Bus ( Direct) takes around 14 hours ( also depends on road condition) and we reached Quari road Kinnaur by 7:30 am in the morning and the driver informed us that further the road is closed and the bus will not go beyond this point.

Point where bus dropped us…

Now we have to walk 6 kms more to reach Recong Peo bus stand. Walking through the beautiful valley , i was mesmerized by the view and soon snowfall started.

That’s me…

Finally i reached my hotel ( INR 700) after 3 hours of walk and decided to take rest as it was freezing outside. The snowfall was non-stop and continued till evening.

Next day sun was shinning bright , built a snowman and walked around the valley .

Reached Quari point again by taking a cab this time to catch a bus for Shimla , took a bus by afternoon around 2 pm ( women concession in HRTC bus , i paid INR 221 for shimla) and reached Shimla by midnight . I choose to take bus till Shimla because of regular bus service otherwise have to wait for a direct bus . Then booked a cab for Chandigarh ( shared cab INR 500)
