Finally we got to stay a few days at home …. Not a hotel. On April 23rd we left Mandi to go to Shahpur near Dharmshala where Shama aunty’s house is. It’s really Shama aunty’s house and she deserves an award for getting it built singlehandedly … My sunshine friend Amit’s only contribution has been making friends with the next door neighbour Bindu :):) and staying out of his mom’s hair. The house is beautiful, more a temple to Saibaba and Shama aunty’s unadulterated love for people and the views are just stunning … Here are some pictures of the way from Mandi to Shahpur and from the house. The route we took was Mandi – Drang – Padhar – Joginder Nagar – Baijnath – Palampur – Kangra airport – Shahpur. The world’s second best place for paragliding is at Bir-Billing which is very close to Joginder Nagar. Also at Palampur take the bypass to Dharmshala via the Horticulture university … The Palampur market is super crowded always.
Are you feeling the same way that we did ? To just work from this place ? We have fallen in love with Himachal … Just wait for the postcards from Dalhousie and Khajjiar – the scenery just takes your breath away.
