I had traveled on the Delhi to Jibhi route twice. Both the occasions were at the time of winters.
On my very first visit as compared to the recent visit, the place had changed a lot.
Jibhi has not been hidden anymore from tourist footsteps & reach. These would probably not my words two years back when I had visited the town for the first time.
What excites you to visit again the already visited place?
The surroundings, local vibes, environment, has a major role to play in deciding to re-visit a place.
There might be several other reasons too. But if you ask me, I especially went to Jibhi again to show my point of view for Jibhi that has been changed since the time of my first visit there.
Jibhi had changed quite a lot in terms of newly built constructions. Also, it impacted the livelihood of people there. It had allowed the local people to explore new ways for self-growth.
If you are among the ones who are actively looking to head out from Delhi to Jibhi. This article might make things sorted for you.

How to Reach Jibhi from Delhi by Bus
There are various ways to cover your journey from Delhi to Jibhi but I will be focusing on by bus because that will be a tricky medium and an exciting one too.
Since many of us look for an opportunity to minimize our budget, therefore what’s better than traveling from Delhi to Jibhi on the bus.
Delhi to Jibhi Bus
If you are a first time on the blog, then I wanted to tell you that the blog covers budget travel guides. So, I would eventually be focusing on the lowest cost-effective way to reach Jibhi from Delhi.
The Delhi to Jibhi distance is 500km approx. and there are no direct buses to Jibhi from Delhi. You have to take a Delhi to Aut bus.
Further, I had divided the routes below so that it can become easier for you to reach Jibhi by Bus.
Delhi to Aut Bus
The Delhi to Aut distance is 475km approx.
An overnight journey from Delhi can easily make you reach Aut in the morning. You can take Volvo buses from Majnu Ka Tila which is the hub of the Volvo buses going to Himachal or any other state from Delhi.
Note – Make sure that you reach the Aut bus stand which comes after the Aut tunnel. Somehow, if the bus drops you just before the tunnel then you need to make your way towards the Aut bus stand.
But make sure that the bus drops you at the Aut bus stand.
Aut to Banjar Bus
Upon reaching the Aut bus stand, you can take a direct bus to Jibhi but the frequency is very low. In that case, you have to take an Aut to Banjar bus.
Aut ➡️ Banjar ➡️ Jibhi
The Aut to Banjar distance is 25km & the bus fare is Rs. 55 per person. The bus will be going to drop you at the Banjar bus stand. The bus frequency from Banjar to Jibhi is too low.
Aut to Banjar Taxi Fare
The Aut to Banjar taxi fare is Rs.800. If you are in a hurry to Banjar or either Jibhi then you can take a taxi from neat the Aut bus stand.
The taxi will make you reach Jibhi super quick like in 45-50mins or a max of 1 hr from the Aut.
Banjar to Jibhi in shared cab
The Banjar to Jibhi distance is 8km.
There will be a difference when you take a personal taxi and a shared cab.
If you take a taxi from Aut that will directly drop you at Jibhi the fare would be Rs.1200 and from Banjar to Jibhi taxi directly, the fare would be Rs.300-400.
The Banjar to Jibhi shared cab fare was Rs.50 per person.
Note – Prices can be subject to change.
I hope that I had explained in a manner that you will not be going to find your way tricky anymore till Jibhi.
In this case, I am assuming weekends on Saturday & Sunday or let’s say on any other day.
Jibhi is not a very big town that requires many days to explore around & I am suggesting this from an exploration point of view.
Rest apart, let’s look at some of the places you can visit in Jibhi.
I. Jibhi Waterfall
Jibhi Waterfall will be present a few minutes away from either way, whether you choose to walk or take your vehicle to the Jibhi Waterfall.
I would suggest a walk because that will create a sense of enthusiasm as well as depict a connection with the surrounding environment.
The Jibhi Waterfall is present inside a forest but no need to worry it’s not a wild or scary forest.
But the path to the waterfall would be very pleasing to the human eyes in every manner. It will make you feel that you can spend some time on the way too.
The small water streams will be accompanying you to the big waterfall. It’s not that quite big but as compared to the in-between small water streams.
You will not find a lot of crowd near the waterfall even on weekends. But, yes you will find tourists in small numbers unless and until you spot a trip organizer directing the people towards the Jibhi Waterfall.
If you believe me you can spend plenty of time say for about 2-3hrs near the waterfall. Watching the surroundings & clicking thousands of pictures.
The area is very peaceful and quiet. You can just hear the birds chirping or can even spot the monkeys flying or the waterfall sound as you approach near.
Until and Unless some huge gathering disturbs your peace, the probability of happening this is also quite low actually.
But before deciding to do any of these treks or even visiting the Jalori pass you should first check the weather. The weather in the mountains is highly unpredictable and then there’s a high mountain pass.
It snows heavily at Jalori pass & Shoja valley which blocks the road for some days in the winter season. Monsoon seasons are also not a good idea to trek on the Jalori pass.
i.e you must check the weather forecast before taking any decision or most importantly the season you’re planning to visit.
Often the summers are highly recommended for treks unless & until you’re an experienced snow trekker.
