If you are looking to get a spice of mountain life but do not want to get lost in the crowd of a hill station, Jibhi will serve as a mesmerizing hamlet for you. Tucked in the remote Banjar Valley of Himachal Pradesh, it is at a distance of 500 km from Delhi. If you are anywhere near, get ready to rock and roll with us on Jibhi Road Trip.
Jibhi is a walker’s delight, with easy trails abundant in seamless scenery and the freshness of the air. It’s a scenic place that may be distant but it brims with all attractive opportunities for travellers. It stands out because it’s at the confluence of two rivers: the Tirthan River and the Flachan River. The gurgling water and the voices of wind make up for a great night’s sleep. At the same time, activities like Trout Fishing, forest hiking, lakeside picnics, lake treks, and sightseeing activities will keep you enthusiastic during the day.
The mountains surrounding Jibhi are lush with Pine and Cedar trees. Along with this, the wooden architecture is ancient but gold-like—precious. The intricate carvings and cantilevered balconies of the rustic Victorian-style houses perfectly blend with the landscape.
We are too excited to take you on a road trip that you will remember for your lifetime. We are eager to meet you, listen to your travel adventures and share ours. Give us a chance to take you to this offbeat location in the Himalayas. Here is a brief itinerary of the Jibhi Road Trip with Plan the Unplanned.
We will start the Jibhi road trip from Delhi. We will leave Delhi at 7:00 pm and will reach Jibhi in the morning. In fact, it’s an overnight journey.
At the conclusion of the Jibhi Road Trip, by 10:00 am, you will wake up to a crisp panorama and will surrender to the beauty on the way. Specifically, day 1 is for Jibhi Sightseeing. On the way, the Plan the Unplanned team will halt for breakfast. Later after check-in, some rest, and lunch, we will go for Jibhi sightseeing.
Accordingly, while appreciating the architecture, we will take a stroll on the riverside and spend some leisure time. Here you can play games, build stone castles or sand villas, and make meaningful connections. The evenings are colder, and so we will return to our homestay by sunset. With dinner, dumb charades and gossip sessions will follow. After some time, take rest for the night and gear up for the trek that follows the next day.
Indeed, waking up in the mountains and looking up to a trekking experience is a rush in itself. After a filling breakfast, we will move towards Jalori Pass, at the height of 3120 m. Then, we will trek to Serolsar lake, which starts from Jalori Pass through a narrow pass. The walk through the dense and lush forest will capture your eye. Thirty minutes after the walk, you will open up to the broader views of the mountains. You can witness smaller pleasures like watching cattle graze, profound valleys and blooming plants. On the way, you will also come across some ruins of cottages. Surprisingly, bricks, wood and mud are the only materials used to construct these.
The trek will approximately take five to six hours. Subsequently, after crossing a very dense forest, we will finally reach Serolsar Lake with a small temple by its side. You can enjoy the panorama and reflect on your playful side. There is also a small cafe where you can take a break and relax. Later, you can enjoy the sunset on the way back to the homestay and sing local folk songs with trek leaders.
Sadly but with all excitement, this is the last day of our Jibhi Road Trip. After the sumptuous breakfast, we will move out for a river rafting adventure in Kullu in the Beas river. The river offers six grades of rapids that you will be facing throughout the activity. Additionally, all exciting words come to mind for such an activity: adrenaline-pumping, soul-satisfying, confidence-building, thrilling, stirring, action-packed; the Himalayan waters add to the experiences you will cosset for your life.
After we are done, we will munch on something delicious and leave for Delhi.
In the end, give us a chance to say goodbye nicely. We are sure that this trip will add smiles to your life and keep taking you back on the journeys after you return home. In fact, Plan the Unplanned team is always happy to see you again; Check out our other itineraries and call us soon. We will wait for your message. Till then, take care and rejoice.
