Long and winding road to Dharmshala

Shimla to Dharmshala is about 160 miles – it took 10 hours of solid driving on single track rough roads to cross the various mountains. With 3 kids, that is like torture, but they all managed admirably in the end. Luckily watching the scenery change, the clouds and thunderstorms roll through and then the sun coming out over the rain drenched tea plantations was better than watching TV. It was still a long way though.

 

 

the overtaking on the outside was sheer madness

all available land is terraced for wheat

little villages with their own styles

verdant fields by the roadside

just after the cloudburst

the tea plantation just after the rain
