If this new year, you are looking for rather a scenic celebration in the hills, than on the wooden floors of a pub or a bar, then perhaps this New Year Backpacking trip is the one you exactly need

Imagine, getting to travel alongside celebrating Christmas, only to finally arrive at a
Valley to revel in one of the best New Year parties you will ever have. Wouldn’t that be some celebration

Himachal Pradesh is located in the Kangra and McLeodGanj district on the outskirts of Dharamsala city and has been one of the most popular tourist destinations in recent years. Occupied by many Tibetans, who moved here after China invaded their homeland, McLeod Ganj is sometimes called Little Lhasa. It is also worth noting that the Tibetan government in exile is only based in McLeodGanj.

Beginning from the famous Majnu ka Tila Bus stand, the journey takes you overnight to Mcleodganj. The Bhagsunnag waterfall of McLeodganj is one place to check out from the bucket list. From the shopping districts, Tibetan market, to cafe hopping and trying finger licking momos, you’re sure to have the full fun and frolic of this place

Moving on to Triund, the trek to the top is promising for the fascinating view it provides. Known for its excellent panoramic views of the Dhauladhars, Triund offers more than just a beautiful sightseeing trek. It leads further to Kareri Lake, where you'll come across rock-cut caves to explore.

Around 80kms from McLeodganj is Bir, our next stop. The famous village of Himachal Pradesh, located in the west of Joginder Nagar Valley, is known for its paragliding activities. Other than that, tourists also go for hang gliding and parasailing at Bir Billing. You will definitely quench your thirst for high adrenaline activities here.

From Bir to Jibhi to Jalori Pass, you will get to see wooden houses on elevated slopes with their intricate carvings and cantilevered balconies. The Banjar Valley of Himachal will be quite an appealing view. Jibhi is a secluded and unspoilt valley. Surrounded by pine and cedar forests, the place is in close proximity to the Great Himalayan National Park.

After trekking to Jalori Pass, the isolated road of fun and adventure, you will get to the mesmerising Serolsar Lake with the religious visit to the Shringa Rishi Temple.

Kasol, our next point of enjoyment and travel, is also the most awaited by many travel enthusiasts. Be it Chalal Lake, the riverside escape, Israeli cuisine or the Hippie paradise, Kasol is a rewarding destination for one and all. Surprisingly, there is only one ATM here, so make sure you have the cash in hand for trips ahead.

Great Experience! We took Justwravel's road trip package to Spiti Valley. The package is well organized covering main sightseeings and places to visit. All the accommodations and travel arrangements were comfy and included most of the promised amenities. Special thanks to Piyush Rawat, our coordinator, he managed and acted his best in all the situations. His jolliness added more fun to the trip. Although many destinations were covered in a short period of time, the trip was relaxing. Thanks for such memorable moments of our lives.
