Narkanda to Delhi – The Journey Back Home

by Vargis.Khan

This post is in continuation of a previous one and a part of my Narkanda Road Trip travelogue. We reached Narkanda on Day 1, spend our second and third day in the town sightseeing, and returned on Day 3 from Narkanda to Delhi.

Journey So Far:

This trip was a memorable one, the one that we were going to remember for a long time. We came here looking for some amazing vistas but god decided to make it even better with a surprise snowfall.

But alas, the last day of the trip arrived and it was time for us to head home from Narkanda to Delhi. For a little while we thought to prolong our stay by another day but then decided against it. The next day we both had to join back at work and couldn’t afford another day’s leave.

We woke up to a snow-covered white Narkanda. It seemed like someone had covered the entire village under a thick white sheet. It was the first time I had seen a live snowfall and it was also my first time seeing the valleys after a snowfall.

So yes, we were definitely very excited. We knew that we were to head home today but not before we had one last walk through a white Narkanda.

Back at the hotel, we decided to try one last activity, which I guess all tourists who come to Narkanda do. Put on the Sking gear and have someone push you down a slope.

Narkanda to Delhi

We checked out of the hotel at around 10 AM. It was a bit late in the day but there was nothing else planned except for just a long and monotonous ride back home. With heavy hearts, we marked an end to our trip and started on our ride home.

Nothing much to write for rest of the day except for one small part. A little before Shimla, we came across a spot where some photographers were offering to shoot people’s pictures in Himachali dress. Now, this was something that neither of us had ever tried; that is to act like an actual tourist. But this one time, we decided to do exactly that. Funny picture, I know !!!

Hello Vargis-How abt taking Khandagat-Chail-Shalot-Kufri Route to Narkand without going via Shimla? Is that route advisable? on my DAY 1 Itinerary to Spiti Valley from Chandigarh

Hi Mack – It would add a few kilometers to the journey but at least would help you avoid the Shimla traffic jam.
