A perfect plan to travel JIBHI, Himachal Pradesh in 2022. Number of days for trip, total budget and travel info

 Tirthan vally

The village of Jibhi is one of the unexplored places in the state of Himachal Pradesh located in Tirthan valley. It is located at an elevation of 1600m, 51250 ft and 70 km from Mandi. Tourists can enjoy this place away from the crowd, and commercial attributes.

In Self-Drive Car

There are two routes. One that takes you via the State  Highway 13 (or the Mandi-Manali Road) until Aut tunnel before bifurcating towards the Tirthan Valley. This route is easy to drive/navigate and remains open 365 days a year. Google, moreover, suggests you take this route.

The other route will take you to Delhi-Chandigarh-Shimla-Jalori Pass-Jibhi, it is comparatively longer and may remain close during winter.

If you want the drive to be easier and shorter, take the road that goes you via Aut Tunnel. If you want the drive to be the more scenic route, take the road that goes via Jalori Pass.

How To Travel From Chandigarh

Again, the same two routes mentioned above.

If you want the drive to be easier and shorter, take the road that goes you via Aut Tunnel. If you want the drive to be the more scenic route, take the road that goes via Jalori Pass.

Jibhi is surrounded by bunches of pine and deodar trees where you can enjoy a quiet soothing night in the foothills of the Himalayas. In the winters, the temperature drops down below normal level that making the place look like heaven.

Tourists experience snowfall almost every day in the valleys with amazing shots on camera. The Tirthan River flows between the villages that give an ancient touch to it. The majority of homestays and hotels are constructed with wood so that the rooms remain warm.

Malta trees are present in the backyard of every locale's house. Some of the terrains in this village are meant for trekking. Now, it is considered as one of the hills stations with its fascinating nature. You will remain forever grateful to Himachal Pradesh after visiting this place. Jibhi valley is appealing with ancient temples, dense forests and tranquil valleys.

Places to visit in Jibhi are:

Jibhi Waterfall

Jibhi waterfall is one of the immaculate places to spend time in Jibhi, Himachal. Tourists enjoy a peaceful walk to reach this waterfall. Your heart will skip a beat by listening to the sound of the waterfall hitting the hard rocks.

Best Time To Travel

It depends on what you want, to be honest.

If the idea is to travel during the most pleasant weather and you don’t mind travelling during peak season, the best time to travel Jibhi would be somewhere between April and June.

If however, you want to travel during pleasant weather but don’t want too many people around, travel between September and early November. October will be the best month between September & November as it’s Apple plucking season in Tirthan & Banjar Valley. Enjoy some freshly plucked juicy apples when around.

If you want to see snow and experience snowfall, visit during January & February.

The summer holiday months of May & June, the special dates like the New Year & Christmas, and long weekends are when I would say is the bad time to visit Jibhi because of wave upon waves of tourists who get there.

Where To Stay In Jibhi

When it comes to accommodation, be assured that there is something for everyone.

Chehni Kothi

Chehni Kothi is an amazing tower constructed with wood and stone in the middle of the Chehni village in Jibhi valley in Himachal Pradesh.

Tourists can visit this place easily from Tirthan valley in short timing. You can walk up to the tower because driveways are not present; the high terrain of valleys makes the place delightful from the top.

Shringra Rishi gate is the starting point from where visitors start walking. The walking journey is not so pleasant as the entire walkways are concentrated with mud and dirt. You can visit a temple on top of the tower known as the Shringra Rishi temple. Lush green dense forest all around the tower makes it pleasant.

In Jibhi, Chehni village is a must location visit. If you are a nature lover then you must visit this place. It is impossible to take your eyes off the endearing green forests.

  • Best time to visit: November to February

Great Himalayan National Park

Jibhi is incomplete without the collection of wide varieties of flora and fauna in the Himalayan national park. You will not find anything artificial in this place because everything is natural. A vast array of fish is also present here.

It requires special permission for the visitors to enter the park. Flowers bloom best in the spring season from March to mid-September. More than 90 species of plants are found here.
