Cycling trip across the Jalori Pass, Himachal Pradesh

Day one is always hard. But staying the night at Raju bharti’s guest house in Gushani more than made up for it. Lovely family to stay with and an absolutely gorgeous place too.

On day two rode through rain and climbed 1,234m over 17 kms, (that’s pretty darn steep, eh!) see elevation profile. The downhill after the pass was endless — the break shoes were totally worn out, and our wrists were hurting by the time we reached down. And to top it all we narrowly missed a landslide, by minutes…

Ride stats: Cycling across the Jalori Pass (3,142m), Himachal Pradesh
Total Ascent: 2,610m
Start: Aut ( Manali Road; NH 21)
Finish: Luhri (Hindustan-Tibet Road; NH 22).
Riders – Anuj Shrivastav & Ajay Jaiman

    i came back from Jalori yesterday only. If any one planning to go to Jalori Pass. Do a trek to Raghupur Fort. 3 km steep climb but breath taking view and magnificent meadow . best place to stay is Jibhi PWD guest house newly renowated and surrounded by apple orchards.
