All About It
- 8 Days 7 Nights
Beautiful Himachal is India's outdoor adventure playground with its breathtaking snow-capped peaks and deep river valleys. Anything that can be done in the mountains, including hiking, climbing, rafting, paragliding, and skiing, can be done here. Himachal is an amazing spot to just stroll around and take in the scenery, whether you're traveling by bus, car, motorcycle, jeep, or on foot. You enter a different universe with its own culture, deities, and even language with each pass crossing into a new valley. Villages perched on craggy mountains fascinate with their fairy-tale architecture and the laid-back friendliness of its residents. Hill stations entice travelers with their festive ambiance and historical echoes, while backpacker hotspots entice them with their blissful vibe and natural beauty.Given the diversity of the Himachali mosaic, you can mistakenly believe that you have landed in Tibet while visiting Lahaul and Spiti, the centuries-old Buddhist cultural centers, and McLeod Ganj, the Dalai Lama's temporary residence. As you lift off to paraglide in Bir, you'll have a good burst of adrenaline to start your adventure. After visiting the Dalai Lama's residence in McLeod Ganj, you'll experience Mini Israel in Kasol. The journey would ultimately come to an end in Manali, Himachal Pradesh, which is home to some of the outstanding natural landscapes and hippie-style streets.
