How to reach Jibhi
People travel to Jibhi from different places. Some travel from Shimla, some from Delhi, and some from Punjab. So I will try to explain all the ways to get to this beautiful Himalayan village from anywhere in the country.
Delhi is a must-go place for everyone if you are planning a trip to North India. It is the main gateway to reach Himachal or Uttarakhand. So after arriving in Delhi, you have various ways to get to Jibhi.
Take the MRT to Kashmir Gate and then take an automatic rickshaw to Majnu ka Teela. Majnu ka Teela is a place where you can take a Volvo bus to Manali or Kullu.
To travel to Jibhi, you need to get off at a place called Aut (before the tunnel). Aut is a small city located 467 km from Delhi. Aut will arrive an hour before Bhuntar.
From Aut, you can go to taxi services or even take local buses to get to Jibhi.
The other option to get to Jibhi is via Delhi> Shima> Luhri> Jalori Pass> Jibhi
This route can be planned if you want to go to Shimla first or if you are directly planning a trip to Jibhii from Shimla.
You can take a Volvo bus to Shimla from Delhi from Majnu ka teela or Kashmere Gate.
7-8 hours flight will take you to Shimla. From there, you must travel through Luhri> Jalori pass> Shoja> Jibhi.

Sirulsar Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes located in the Kullu district of Himachal Pradesh. This lake is located in the middle of the dense forest of Galore Pass and is among the best places to visit around Gibe. I have visited this lake many times and believe me it is the best place to enjoy the peace of nature. To get to this wonderful lake, it is necessary to start walking from the same path near the temple. Before starting your journey, stock up with plenty of water and some snacks because you won't find any other stores on your way.

Just a few minutes walk from Shringa Rishi temple, you will reach this amazing place called Chehni Kothi. You must be thinking what is special about the place?

The height of the tower is about 45 meters which adds to the charm of the place. These towers are believed to be the tallest standing structures in the entire western Himalayas. So if you are planning a trip to Jibhi, never leave this place off your bucket list.
Like most valleys in Himachal Pradesh, Tirthan also gets its name from the river that runs through it. A major tributary of the Beas River, the Tirthan River rises from the frigid glacial lake atop Hanskund (4800 meters) located inside the Great Himalayan National Park in southeast Kullu. The river flows through a V-shaped valley and opens quite wide at the bottom as it approaches the Beas. On standard tourist maps, the Tirthan Valley stretches from Banjar to Ptahad, and is dotted with several villages (Sai Ropa, Nagini, Goshini, etc.) on the river bank.
