The journey from Delhi to Tirthan/ Jibhi requires you to get off at AUT on the main highway to Manali. Aut bus stop and taxi stand are right next to each other and one can find transport to Banjar easily. Please remember to ask for a bus to Banjar and not Jibhi / Shoja beacause these are not well connected by buses from Aut. Similarly do not ask for a bus or cab to Tirthan since it is not a location rather a larger valley.
Locating The Blue Sheep Hostel-
Since we are located in an orchard and not on the road, we are not visible from the main road. The hostel is located 50mts below the road and there is a paved path coming down all the way.
We suggest you to mention your stop as PWD Rest House Chowk Banjaar if coming by bus or cab which will save you 5 mins of downhill walk from the bus stand (to ensure that they drop you there remember to remind the bus conductor to drop you at that location when you can see that you are about to reach.) If you get off at the bus stand, walk 200 mts downhill on the main road and once you spot Kangara Cooperative bank you can ask the shop opposite to it (Bhushan General Store) about the way down to our place. Or give us a call or follow this link to the exact location to the start of the trail.
If coming by your own vehicle please note that since we are not on the road we do not have a private parking. However there is ample space to park 30 mts below the hostel. That area is a safe space to park as our vehicles are also parked there. Alternatively you can park at the paid parking provided by the Bus Stop which is 300mts or 5 min walk from the hostel and costs INR 50 per night.
If you are coming by personal vehicle we will appriciate if you call us once you leave from Aut so that we can help you park and reach the hostel hassle free.
