As many of you know, I have decided to finally bring life to my dream of taking groups of people on culinary adventures and decided that South India would be the perfect place for me to start. I thought that the CHG earth hotel group would be a suitable partner for my tours and after discussion with them, I embarked on my reconnaissance visit.
As it turns out, the harsh and unpredictable weather that grounded our flight to Dharamshala and made our first day there somewhat challenging turned out to be a blessing in disguise as the snow gods were actually working in our favour! One of our objectives when planning to trip to the area was to take GIta to the snow and we had thought that we would have to take her to Shimla for the snow experience. Shimla, the capital of Himachal Pradesh is at a higher elevation than Dharamshala and therefore more likely to have snow.
