Why is Jibhi better than some other places around it?
Being a part of Banjar Valley, Jibhi is a hill station with mainly homestays, a few guesthouses (run by families) and cafes which are managed basically by the same homestays. It’s a great destination to come and settle for a few days/weeks, go for trekking, but there are no trendy crowd-attracting activities like other parts of Himachal. The lack of commercialization makes this place a beautiful retreat from the big city life into a natural ambiance with picturesque views.
