Once you make a decision, the universe conspires to make it happen ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Ever since I visited Tirthan and Gushaini valleys in Himachal Pradesh a decade back, I have wanted to go back here. Many things did not work out over the years, but this year, somehow my heart decided upon visiting this spectacular bio-diverse region of Tirthan & Gushaini valleys n Himachal Pradesh, which also includes Great Himalayan National Park. Universe conspired and I went on a most enjoyable long weekend getaway to Tirthan Angler’s Retreat in Himachal Pradesh, in a series of developments, which I can only term as the ‘Mystic Law’ of the Universe.

Views from my room at Tirthan Anglers’ Retreat

This summer my heart was determined to visit Tirthan Valley and I kept planning with my friend and Tirthan valley resident Medhavi  to visit at her homestay. One thing led to another and I had to keep postponing the travel plans.  Meanwhile TCBG (a Travel group  I’m part of, on Facebook) was planning to celebrate its 2nd Anniversary and after many deliberations, a long weekend getaway at Tirthan Angler’s  Retreat (Tirthan, Himachal Pradesh) was decided upon for willing members. I did not even bat  an eyelid while saying yes!!

So off we started, a group of nine travelers in a Tempo Traveler Van, some acquainted and some meeting for the first time on the trip. The journey from Delhi to Tirthan in Himachal Pradesh is around 12-14 hours, but thanks to our super safe (and slow)-driving driver, it took us around 19 hours to reach Tirthan Anglers’ Retreat. However, the moment I walked down the narrow steep path leading to the property, all my tiredness faded away looking at the pretty views of the mountains, skies and feeling the mild chill of the mountain air on my skin. It was as if on cue, the universe decided to do a quick light drizzle on my arrival!

Cottages at Tirthan Anglers’ Retreat

Tirthan Anglers’ Retreat is located in Phalanj Valley of Tirthan region and the Phalanj river flows right behind the property. It is quite secluded and one has to walk a steep mild mud path to get here (so it might not suitable for specially abled or younger kids). The property has luxury cottages and also option of tents. The best part about the property was the Phalanj river flowing by; the serene gushing sounds of the river at any time of day & night was so soothing to my ears. I spent couple of hours every day in morning & evening sitting by the river and just getting lost in the sight & sounds.

For most of the time we were in Tirthan, it was cloudy or rainy. However, that did not stop anyone from our group to enjoy the way they liked. Some of the group members went for a day trip to Jalori Pass, while some decided to explore nearby areas. As for myself, I wanted to experience the happiness of day hikes in the villages (some of which are located rather high up) of Tirthan , so I off I went with my friend Medhavi one day hiking to Shilin Village. It was such a wonderful experience and re-living my hiking nostalgia of a decade back visit in Gushaini & Tirthan (as a Masters’ student) – read here my post from a decade back on Great Himalayan National Park. At the time, I was researching on Great Himalayan National Park and it gave me much happiness to observe on the hike this time around that the ecological diversity here has been preserved to a great degree. At the end of that day, hiking for almost 5-6 hours, I came back a much more content person. I will write a separate post on my experience of hiking in Shilin village.

In the evenings, we all got back together to share our experiences over bonfire, drinks and barbeque. The property owners are friendly and very hands-on with their hospitality; quite liked chatting with them on their thought behind having this property at the location that they did.

One morning some of the group members also did a yoga session with the in-house Yoga trainer (well I had all the intention on previous night but in the morning, sleep and logic prevailed that its best to enjoy the weather & fresh air from the comfort of my bed!!).

I think all of us returned with lot of enthusiasm and happiness in our hearts, I certainly did… and again with a promise to myself to return again to Tirthan, Himachal Pradesh.
