The current situation has bounded all of us. But rather than getting disheartened, plan out the places you want to visit after all this normalises. But don’t forget to add Jibhi in your list!
Jibhi is a small paradise in Himachal Pradesh. This place is not as famous as Manali or Shimla. All you need is just pack your trekking bags and get a bunch of friends to chill in the lap of nature.
The place is situated in the Banjar Valley of Himachal Pradesh and on the banks of the rippling Tirthan River. Imagine waking up in the running voice of river and chirping of birds!
How to reach Jibhi:
By Air: The nearest airport is in Bhuntar in the Kullu district. It is 60 km/2 hr from Jibhi. You can take a flight to Chandigarh and from there a taxi to Jibhi.
By Rail: The nearest railway station is at Shimla, 150 km/6 hr from Jibhi. As there is no direct train to shimla, you need to change trains at Kalka. Take a one-way taxi from Shimla to Jibhi.
By Road: The simplest way to travel to Jibhi is to board a bus for Manali from Delhi and step off at Aut. Then arrange for a taxi pickup or take another bus to Banjar, which is 8 km before Jibhi, and get a taxi from there.
Places to visit:
For starting, get ready for a trek to Jalori Pass. It is a 12 km beautiful trek from in between of the huge trees and jungle. On reaching the top, you see the beautiful Sarosar lake on the top. En route, you can visit Jalori Mata’s Temple at Jalori Pass, Buri Nagan’s Temple at Sereolsar Lake.
Your trip will be incomplete without a visit to the Jibhi Waterfall. Jibhi waterfall is less than a kilometer from the main town. It is an amazing waterfall, crossed by lovely small wooden bridges over the stream.
Another trek is to Chehni Kothi Fort. Going from in between of the green apple trees, you will see pure mountain water flowing down.
The atmosphere is so fresh and pure, that you will not feel like coming back to city. It is a 4-5 km long trek. The trek and final view are equally beautiful.
