Day 1, 17th October ‘19, Thursday
  • 8 PM- Fun begins as soon as you arrive at Zostel South Delhi. You’re in for an ice-breaking session and a briefing on the itinerary.   
  • 9 PM- Grab your seat and look forward to the celebration as the overnight journey to Dalhousie begins.
Day 2, 18th October, Friday
  • 2 PM- Arrive at the hostel, freshen up and have a good look around.
  • 2:30 PM- Nothing like a warm and freshly prepared lunch after a night-long journey, huh? (On the house!)
  • 3 PM- Go DIY as you explore the scenic town of Dalhousie for picturesque views, local life and everything in between! Oh, and make sure you chat up with the Zostel buddies for the best of recommendations. 
  • 7:30 PM- Laze around in the common area at dusk and catch up with fellow travellers over a movie, followed by a scrumptious dinner on the house.
  • 10 PM- Head back to your cosy bed and rest for another glorious day.
Day 3, 19th October, Saturday
  • 8 AM- Wake up to the smell of freshly prepared breakfast to start your day right. On the house, again!
  • 10 AM- We hope you’re in for a little adventure today! Leave from Zostel Dalhousie to Daikund for hiking.
  • 11 AM to 3 PM- Trek uphill with beautiful views of the mountains and a varied trail towards Jot. This 5.7 km hike is a perfect way to be one with nature.
  • 3 PM to 3:30 PM- And we don’t stop. Off you go to Khajjiar with more fun on the cards.
  • 3:30 PM to 5 PM- How about gorging on lunch surrounded by vast green meadows and mountains through various food joints and restaurants (costing extra). Sit back and soak up all the panoramic views of the valley along with that.
  • 6 PM- As the evening arrives, head back to the hostel.
  • 8 PM- No better way to deal with the weariness than with group games in the common area!
  • 9 PM- And while you do that, might as well indulge in a good dinner (on the house). Head back to your rooms for a good night's sleep to wake up fresh in the morning.
Day 4, 20th October, Sunday
  • 8 AM- Breakfast is served at the hostel’s cafe (on the house).
  • 10 AM- It’s time to check-out of the hostel. But hey, you’re in for another adventure; a trek to Kalatop. Taking you through unknown roads and dense forest, this trek is a rather intrinsic experience.
  • 1 PM- A number of cafes and Maggie points serve amazing food for you to indulge in, after the hike (excluded from the package). You’ll be back down by 5 and the party bus will be waiting for you at the end of the trek.
  • 6 PM- While you’ve had plenty of time to swing in the lap of nature, it’s time to head back to the city life. Try and capture all the memories as you leave for Delhi!
Day 5, 21st October, Monday
  • 8 AM- A blink and a clap, you’ll already be at Zostel South Delhi by this time. Say your goodbyes to your new travel folks as it’s time everyone went their way. Until next time, which we hope will be very soon!
