Destinations: Shimla and Manali

Description: Shimla used to be the summer capital of British India during colonial times and for the express reason that they fell in love with the beautiful hill station. And anyone who goes there can’t agree enough with them. Manali has steadfastly become the favorite for backpackers and trekkers looking for some peace from the hustle bustle of metro cities.

Why: The Himachal has become synonymous with trekkers, backpackers and hikers who want to spend some quality time away from their usual routines. Shimla is a favourite amongst couples and honeymooners for its scenic landscape, colonial era buildings and beautiful quaint markets.

Recommended hotels:

Shimla - Hotel Himalayan Escape and Hotel Hot Spring Therme & Spa

Manali - Hotel Snow Park and Hotel Yak
