Shimla, Manali, Kullu, Chitkul, Kinnor, Sangla .
The Shimla Hill station boasts of its various tourist attractions like the very famous Mall Road to enjoy shopping, Christ Church, Summer hill, Gaiety heritage cultural complex and Lakkar Bazaar etc. As Shimla has a long history with the Britishers, the place is flourished by beautiful colonial structures of that time.
Shimla offers a number of gastronomic experiences be it fine dining or even street-food. Practically every mid and top range restaurant and hotel offers Indian, Continental and Chinese cuisine. Sample authentic pahadi food or variety of Indian chaat items available along with an assortment of quality confectionery.
Chitkul – the name itself sounds like the twitter of birds, and the curiosity is piqued when you heard that Chitkul is the last inhabited village of India! Also, this gem of a village lies in the mystically beautiful Kinnaur-Kailash region of Himachal Pradesh. These three reasons are enough to make us want to visit Chitkul all the more.
The houses were uniquely built mainly of wood. The people were also always smiling.
A breath of fresh air, insane looking mountains, peace and more than that it is the last village of India. With absolute no connectivity, you just enjoy the nature and the distant peaks, without any distractions.
The summers in Chitkul is not like you will start feeling hot and sweaty. During this time, weather is still very cold and you must wear 2-3 layers during this time as well, however, during the months of May to September all the hotels are open and the river Baspa is not frozen. So you can see a beautiful blue coloured river flowing freely underneath the mountains.
In winter, during this season, the entire valley is decorated in white. It is so cold during this season that rarely any hotels or homestays are operating. Water is frozen so for showers and washing face, you will only get water in buckets.
The charming Kullu is a valley with scores of picturesque sights and temples. Kullu also has few important temples like the Raghunath Temple and Jagannathi Devi Temple. Apart from temples, the Pandoh Dam and Chandrakhani Pass are also must-visits in this region. Kullu is also used as the base town to reach Manikaran, Kasol, Malana, Bhunter and Rohtang Pass too.
I am suggesting to hopin to Kullu for a day and visit Manali which is nearby.
There are many tourist attractions in Manali like Hadimba Temple, Buddhist Monasteries, old Manali, Nehru Kund, Club House, Manu Temple, Great Himalayan National Park, Mountaineering Institute, and Vashist Temple.
In Manali, we will visit Solang Valley (It's a day trip to enjoy the amazing nature) - known as the Snow point, the Solang valley is famous not only for the glaciers and snow-clad landscapes. You can ask my team for Majestic Himalayas Manali, Kasol, Dharamshala trip along with Chitkul and Sangla.
Sangla is a town in the Baspa Valley, also referred to as the Sangla valley, in the Kinnaur District of Himachal Pradesh, India, close to the Tibetan border. Snow clad mountains surround you and you get to see the Kinner Kailash peak. The Baspa River flows through the valley and that is why it is also known as the Baspa Valley.
