The next 2 days were going to be really boring compared to all the action and adventure that we were having over the last 5 days. We got up really late and had left over dinner as breakfast and decided to go shopping to spend time in Manali. We had actually booked a late bus from Manali and an evening flight from Chandigarh. The reason for booking late bus and flight was that we didn’t want to miss the bus or flight in case we finished the trek later than planned. The previous evening I tried to change the tickets and found out that we would have to spend an additional 15k or so to change the flights. So we decided to stick to the boring schedule.
After finishing breakfast, we went shopping in Manali to take something back for our families. I ended up buying a couple of dresses for my wife and my sister-in-law and Saurav brought things for his upcoming trip to Northeast. After shopping, it was time for lunch and since we had a heavy breakfast, decided to stick with momos. Delicious and light and at the same time filling. With nothing much to do, we decided to walk around a bit and then returned back to the hotel to finish packing. After finishing packing, we decided to go to Van Vihar and spent sometime in the park. The park has changed since the last time I was there. All the stalls inside the park have been closed and way to the river Beas has also been closed. I remember having hot tea and noodles when I was there 2 years back. So with the intent of having tea, we came out of the park, and found ourselves a tea vendor. With nothing much to do anymore, we returned back to the hotel and then decided to head out again to do some last minute shopping.
With everything competed, it was time to head to Chandigarh.
