After visiting the place we headed to our next destination Jalori Jot. I thought that the traffic here would be sparse but to my surprise the cafes in the area were hosting great crowd. The young travel junkies were trekking across the treacherous paths of the Jalori pass. We were also accompanied by the group of foreigners who were traveling to Shimla along Ani and Narkanda route, the condition of the roads near jalori Jot was not good at all our car got struck 2-3 times causing us a great discomfort but the scenic beauty of the area that we witnessing was mind boggling and it made us forget every worry we had in our life.
