Photo Travelogue :
Read first part - Here!

So, when the tracker stopped at the small nondescript town of Chamba ( after driving us for almost two hours ), I had first assumed it to be Tehri. I immediately got down and started asking where the Tehri Dam was, and how to reach there. I was informed, that I'll have to go to New Tehri first. I was like - isn't this Tehri, already? No, was the answer. Just then, I saw a bus in a corner shouting 'Ghansali, Ghansali', one local told me to catch it fast, as it'd go via Tehri. So, I made a mad rush to the already crowded bus. Tehri was another half hour away, I was told, as I purchased my ticket. The bus started making its way through a steep, narrow rickety road and with me standing ( not getting any seat ); the sight of the edges so near, with tall trees barely holding the hills together - it was surely a dizzying feeling, not to mention quite picturesque too.

Chamba is a town and nagar panchayat in Tehri Garhwal district in the state of Uttarakhand, India. It is situated at a junction of roads connecting Mussoorie and Rishikesh with the Tehri Dam reservoir and New Tehri. One can go to Kanatal ( 12kms ), Dhanaulti ( 31kms ) etc from this juncture.

Well....well..well....lucky them! They got a seat before me :-)

Nevertheless, I enjoyed the mesmerizing views outside.

Finally, yes finally...we reached New Tehri!

Address : Tehri Garhwal, on Bagirathi River, Uttarakhand 249124
