Manali Trip on Sunday in the month of June came out to our worst Experience.On a Sunday of June month, stuck in a bumper to bumper traffic at Manali for last 4 hours, I walked up to a policeman standing nearby and conversation followed like this:
Me: Sir, its total chaos please do something about it. (Sir bahut pareshani ho rhi hai, kuch kariye)
Police man: Its Manali, traffic happens like this only. We cannot do anything. (Ye Manali hai, yahan aise hi chalta hai. Hum kuch ni kar sakte)
Me: Sir, it’s been four hours in traffic, kindly understand. (4 ghante ho gye hai jam me lage hue)
Police man: It will take another for, we cannot do anything (4 ghante aur lag jayenge hum kuch ni kar sakte)
Police man: Until and unless government constructs roads, condition will be like this only. (Jab tak sarkaar sadak ni banwati, halaat aise hi rahenge)
No prize for guesses, I came back in my car ready to bear the traffic for an unknown time as they cannot do anything. The only thing that they can do is to pass the ball in the government’s court
Interestingly, this jam was surpassing the police station and police could navigate their vehicles by driving through the wrong side. After all, rules are not made for them. To our experience of 4-5 visits, we have witnessed many things. Read this for more flavours of Manali trip.
Manali is a victim of its own prestige, the passage for famous Laddhak route it becomes a start point for all the bike riders. During the peak season i.e from May till July you can see all the hotels are booked with people coming to see the beauty of the place. And now majorly with the riders who plan to ride Leh-Laddakh route. Now if you opt for some peace moment during this time, my friend changes your mind, because at this time you would get more silence at Aravali Biodiversity park in Gurgaon, than here.
Or if you really want to enjoy this place during the peak season !! here is the tip. Plan your reach to Manali in a way that you either enter the city before 6 AM in the morning or after 3 PM and before 5 PM in the afternoon. And please do not stay in the city, you will only feel Delhi in the mountain if you do so. Please move forward towards Rohtang pass and find some stays maybe in Solange valley, or choose some Homestays around theirs. Trust me you would like you are in another world. Very peaceful and calm, the actual reason why we wish to go for a trip. isn’t it? See pictures below to explore some good reason of why to go for Manali trip
We never want to get stuck on our trips, because we plan trips to get out our life fusses !!Stay calm and plan calm.
