Rajendra, Himachal Pradesh Travel Expert

Himachal Pradesh is a very popular destination during a holiday to Indian, bringing together the most popular mountain resorts of northern India. Discover your favourite spots, landscapes and sights whilst on a trekking holiday in Himachal Pradesh with your local travel agency in India: Shanti Travel.

I can highly recommend Manali for the beauty of its typically Himalayan landscapes and its many adventure sports such as paragliding. Charming and picturesque, Dharamsala is known worldwide as the home town of the spiritual leader of the exiled Tibetans, the Dalai Lama. As for Shimla, the capital of Himachal, it was the summer capital of the British colonists who left a strong architectural imprint. My other favourites of this region: the luxuriant valleys of Kullu and Kangra. The best way to reach the distant heights of the Spiti is to take the road from Manali. Although long and sometimes a little painstaking, the route reveals stunning panoramas and attracts more and more mountain lovers.

Trekking and travel in Himachal Pradesh

Travel to Himachal Pradesh with a specialized travel agency.

Himachal Pradesh means ‘Land of the snow-capped mountains’. Travellers make their way over to this region of India to hike and trek through the mountains and take in the snowy landscapes that surround. Close to Tibet and home to the Dalia Lama, Dharamsala perfectly combines spirituality and natural beauty.

Discovering Himachal Pradesh: your holiday to the Indian Himalayas

In the south, the foothills of the Himlayas shelter deep lush valleys, such as those of Kullu or Kangra, topped by peaks sometimes reaching as high as 6000m. Mostly inhabited by Hindus, these valleys are beaming with temples and natural sanctuaries. Packed with charming towns, Himachal Pradesh is a kaleidoscope of tradition and smiles: Shimla is the former summer capital of British India; Manali a resort popular with hippies due to its nonchalant atmosphere; and Dharamsala, home to the Tibetann government in exile and the residence of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama.

The south is separated from the north by the imposing main chain of the Himalayas, beyond which you’ll find Lahoul and Spiti. Near Tibet, these regions inhabited by Buddhist population of Tibetan origin, are home to some of the oldest monasteries in the Tibetan world that you can discover during a trekking trip in Himachal.

Take advantage of the expertise of your local travel agency in the Indian Himalayas and contact you’re your English speaking Travel Expert in Delhi and Leh to start designing your bespoke holiday to Himmachal Pradesh.
