Tattapani is known for its hot sulphurous springs. It is in a lush green valley, a huge river flows through the centre of the village.

Journey took 2 hours, met a civil engineer on the bus. Hard work but very funny, "whats your Dads name?", "Malcolm", "An ENGINEER!!!" etc

Checked into the Spring View Hotel which is on the edge of the river. Very friendly staff, room is basic but the sound of the river makes up for it.

Walked into the quiet village. Met an Indian man who works in Shimla as a civil engineer - that’s two today, he used to be a policeman. Invited me into his home and we drank tea and ate biscuits, it was his 44th birthday. A lemon tree with lemons the size of apples was growing in his garden!

Spent the evening sitting around a campfire and bathing in the spring water with A.D, a traveler from Austria who travels around Asia on his Enfield motorbike, really funny and interesting.
