Once the schedule of AIM was clear, we realized that we have to be in Chandigarh on 24th December, so we had to prepone our original plan.

That ended the drive, a total 6081 kilometers, 107 hours of driving, Almost 600 litres of diesel, 13 days on the road, temperature difference between +30 to -10 degrees. Finally stopped worrying about the toll amount but must be more than Rs. 2000/- probably closer to Rs. 3000/-.

Christmas 2015 - AIM - 2015 Day 5, Shoja

This day was reserved for checking out places around Sojha. We had a leisurely breakfast and then decided to go to Jalori pass. On asking locals, there were varied opinions. Many told us that the road to pass was closed while some suggested that we can easily go.
Finally we decided to take a chance and drive up to pass. We decided, if it got too tough, we will just come back.
Here is the complete video of drive.

11:15 AM We started towards the Jalori pass.
11:55 AM  We reached the pass. We stayed around the pass for almost one hour and fifteen minutes.
1:10 PMWe started back from the pass
1:50 PM We reached the resort. Here are some of the pictures from the day's visit.
