Sahiya to Kwano


Sahiya is midway from Kalsi to Chakrata town. From there one can drive along a unmetalled road and come back to Haripur in a 9 -10 hours.
For road map see here.
We took the road to reach a hamlet called Kufri, near the village of Haza, for a medical camp. The road is unmetalled at most places and positevly bad at a few.

Beyond Kufri the road becomes even worse for about 20kms until one reaches Kwano, after which the road slowly improves. Another 20kms along the road, one comes to a beautiful and absolutely unknown dam called Icchadi Dam. Its such a wonederful place for picnics, just 1hr from Haripur, wonder why it is so underexposed!
Beyond Icchadi, is a hydroelectric station at Tunia and then a stunning waterfall. From there its a short drive along a good road to Haripur.
