      We arrived in the early hours , we had already pre booked our room via email, they let us in no problem, we felt very welcomed here, The room was clean and tidy with tea making facilities, The owner and staff were very friendly, the food in the restaurant below was fantastic, I'm sure we ate more then we should of but it was so tasty. Would definitely recommend this to any backpacker.

      We travelled by sleeper bus to Manali, which took ten hours, the journey was surprisingly ok. I wasn't travel sick which is the main thing, as i tend to be more often than not.

      ... clearly not there originally when the house was built or when the biographer wrote the book, unless he was playing games. However battling through undergrowth already made it feel much more of an adventure. Across the narrow road and elevated yet more still I could see the tops of a roof or two and so I continued across the road and towards them. It was at this point that I hit the barbed wire. ****.

      ... frostbite and starvation. The theory of 'Free Tibet' was certainly becoming a permanent resident in our minds.

We glanced at the signs that said 'FREE TIBET' with a new found understanding and protest. And when we read the billboard that identified Tibetans who had given their own ...

      ... set up for the couple of months a year where it can be accessed (the only way to get there is by foot).

      We sorted out a ‘room’ (read; mud-floored lean-to) at the lovely Lonely Planet ‘guesthouse’ (200R), then cosied up by the wood burning stove with the best thali of the trip while the heavens opened outside.
