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.
