Set by the Tirthan River, these towns are ideal for travellers who are looking to escape mundane existence in concrete jungles and busy cities for rejuvenation.

Situated at an altitude of 3,120 meters above sea level, Jalori Pass offers a breathtaking view of the great Himalayan peaks and it’s the kind of experience that leaves a long-lasting impression on your mind and makes you want to revisit the moment again.
Although this quaint village is accessible throughout the year, the best time to visit Jibhi is from November to February as the weather is perfect for getting the most out of this weekend trip. Jibhi has slowly become extremely popular among travelers in recent years because of the abundance of peace it has to offer.

Jibhi is a tiny hamlet nestled in Tirthan Valley in Himachal Pradesh. It is known for its picturesque views, lush green forests, and abundance of peace. It is an untouched gem that is sought by many travelers who are looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of their daily lives. Jibhi is approximately 33 kilometers away from Aut Tunnel which is also the last point that is accessible by bus as travelers have to switch to private cabs from Aut to reach Jibhi
Jibhi is an extremely offbeat destination and hence the roads are sometimes tricky to navigate. People who have experience driving in the mountains won't find it difficult to drive all the way to Jibhi. However, it'd be a long road trip regardless of the city you're coming from. If opting for a road trip to Jibhi, the preferred starting point would be Delhi or Chandigarh.
This road trip to Jibhi is specially curated by keeping in mind the wishes of people who want a break from the daily humdrums of their life and constantly seek peace.
