Jibhi located on Shimla – Manali route via Seraj Valley is an offbeat tourist destination but surprisingly a beautiful town with lush green mountains and scenic landscapes that will make your heart and soul delighted. I wanted to just move close to nature and spend a relaxing time with my close friends. So, I decided to go to Jibhi with my friends in January. You will find many stay options such as cottages, camps, treehouses. We stayed at a treehouse that was such a wonderful property. My room was cozy, well maintained, and sanitized. From my room, the view of the mountain was breathtaking. During our stay, we tried the local food of the Himalayas like Siddu and delicious Thukpa that one must try. We went for a long walk and hike to visit Jibhi waterfall. We had great fun during the journey and clicked a bunch of pictures at the waterfall. Other places to visit in Jibhi are Serolsar Lake and Shringa Rishi Temple. Spend at least 3- 4 days at Jibhi to have an unforgettable travel experience.
