In the mighty Himalayas lies Manali, a town where one can find spectacular valleys filled with forested areas. No matter how you picture the area you’ll never quite be able to accurately imagine how beautiful it is until you go see it for yourself. You’ll be able to see the flowing river Beas and many gushing waterfalls throughout your visit, as well as sprawling meadows, terraced farming and fruit orchards enhanced by laying amidst all this is abundantly bloomin greenery.
Manali, a distant city in the state of Himachal Pradesh, is separated by Punjabi hills. It is known as The Queen of Hills and also as an ancient city. It consists of two parts: Old Manali which is called Manu and new Manali which is called Hadimba. Hadimba part has a multitude of tourist attractions like Naggar Castle and Palace, GurudwaraTibbi Sahib and Balaji Temple where the devotees come to worship by doing hard tasks in the month of June-July. People who want to see history can go to Manu Fort where they will find old paintings on rock at Kuthar.
Shimla is a popular Hill Station in India and is widely known for its natural beauty. Located 342 kilometres from the national capital of Delhi, this city is one of the most preferred weekend getaway locations for tourists from Delhi and Chandigarh since there are so many places of interest in Shimla itself. If you’re planning to visit Shimla anytime soon, here’s a list of popular Destinations you can check out – Ridge, Summer Hill, Jakhu temple and Lakkar bazaar which have great shopping opportunities for artisans and souvenir items. Laden with dense forests of Pine, Oak and Deodar trees, this hill station is refreshing as it is situated at an altitude of 1212 metres above sea level.
Shimla is adorned with many beautiful Hindu temples. Some are located right in the heart of the city and some, not so much – but they are all equally revered by locals. The temples that you may want to check out include the Jakhoo Temple, Tara Devi Temple, and Mansa Devi Temple (Jakhoo temple is so named because there’s a giant statue of a cow next to it!) These temples are important tourist attractions, but they’re not as hectic as some other popular destinations in Shimla. If you’re travelling with kids or with limited time on your hands and you’d rather explore some nearby locations instead, then consider visiting Hall’s Peak or Lakkar Bazaar for some distinctive souvenir shopping!
It is home to some beautiful landscapes like the very famous Rohtang Pass, Beas Kund and Chandratal Lake. Located at a distance of approximately 500 km from the national capital, Delhi, one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in India and holds an important place among popular hill stations. Its proximity and good road connectivity with major cities like Delhi makes it a weekend getaway ideal for seeking some sweet escape people itching from these cities’ hustle bustle.
Kullu is an exceptional hill station known for its Himalayan climate. During the summer, temperatures can range from a high of 110 F to a low of 70F and during the winter, there are highs of 60F and lows of 10F. In order to enjoy your time in Kullu properly, it’s best to visit in December or January when snowfall usually occurs, because what better way is there to enjoy the snow than actually experiencing it? If you’re into peaceful serenity or want an adventure that will keep your heart pumping all day long, then Kullu is a great place to visit since it offers both. The hills offer a diversity of things to do like visiting natural hot springs and going on whitewater rafting tours down the Beas River. There are many shops around the city centre where souvenirs ranging from clothes and relics to handcrafted accessories can be purchased. But don’t forget the fresh air that Kullu has to offer either!
The Beas Kund, a holy lake surrounded by snow capped mountains, is the source of the river that washes over Manali! It’s located high in the Himachal Valleys, and Rishi Vyas used to go there every day to pray from his second home on top of Mt. Hanuman Tibba. (Add more detail about how it looks — what is visible from outside). The water itself is said to wash away all sins — even if you are not Hindu! We highly recommend going there on the way up or down from Manali ! While we were there, we were quite surprised when hiking through Solang Valley we ran into a beautiful yurt near Beas Kund where a Buddhist Monk offered us some prayer beads made out of goat hair while explaining their significance. They’re supposed to help with good fortune and peace!
