Enjoyed a lot as it was a night journey. We accepted it as a great experience which built character and resolve. We made it to the reunion and completed the rest of our 249 km and had a great fun on that day. We'll plan once again to go to Dharamshala again by car as it was really amazing to travel in night by car.
