30 Stunning Holiday Destinations in Himachal Pradesh

Written by Jane Sophia

This travel blog post reports about the 30 sightseeing places in Himachal Pradesh, India. All of them are very ideal holiday destinations irrespective of the season. Yes, they take your breath away even during the rainy season when you can spot most of the rare birds that live only in the Himalayas and insects that sport extraordinary color combinations on their back. In addition, the hotels are dead cheap during rains.

Each place is only briefly mentioned and I intend to explore them in complete detail that include places to see, things to do, hotels, food and drink, and how to reach, in due course. Therefore, you can read ultimate guide for 30 different hill stations in Himachal Pradesh. Each hill station is likely to beg you to stay at least for 4 days. Your next 30 years of vacation planning will be done by me in advance.

  1. Shimla, Himachal Pradesh

Himachal Pradesh _1

This is the second most visited hill station in India. The first place is always occupied by Srinagar, Kashmir. Shimla is the capital of Himachal Pradesh famous for the toy train that will take you to Shimla from Kalka railway station. In addition, Shimla is the most preferred destination by the honeymooners. There are two major shopping areas in Shimla namely ‘The Mall’ and the ‘Lakkar Bazar’. Both are very popular among tourists for myriad handicrafts made of wood and wool.

  1. Manali, Himachal Pradesh

Himachal Pradesh _2

This is the second most popular holiday destination in Himachal Pradesh. It is located in the Kullu valley. Manali is the gateway to the world-famous Rohtang Pass. Hundreds of adventure sports lovers stop briefly at Manali only to head to Solang Valley, which is a skiing and paragliding destination. Solang Valley is only 13 km from Manali. The place is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and offers a terrific view of glaciers. The Institute of Mountaineering and Allied Sports, Manali is located here.

Other adventure activities in Solang Valley are paragliding, zorbing, and parachuting. I would like to try zorbing once which involves getting into a transparent white ball and roll inside the ball on a gentle slope.

Watch a video of how zorbing is done.

Horse riding is also popular among children during summer.

  1.  Mcleodganj

Himachal Pradesh _3

The name Mcleodganj is a mixture of English and Indian and though it is a lovely holiday destination in Himachal Pradesh located near Dharamsala, it is not as popular as Dharamsala. It may be due to heavy dose of a mixture of Tibetan and English culture. Nevertheless, it is favored by the Westerners.

  1. Spiti

Himachal Pradesh _4

It attracts few visitors because of lack of good staying options though not lacking in attractions some of which are Chandratal Lake and Kunzum Pass. The world-famous Buddhist monastery Key Gompa is located in Spiti, at a height of over 12,000 feet. The Spiti River is in the vicinity of Key Gompa.  Spiti has several trekking trails.

  1. Khajjiar

Himachal Pradesh _5

The most visited attraction here is the Kalatop wildlife sanctuary which houses deodar, oak, coniferous and fir forest and is also home to pheasants, serow (a kind of goat that is bigger than the sheep), and black bear.

Just for this reason, Kaza attracts tourists from Asian countries.

  1. Nalagarh

The name Nalagarh doesn’t sound like a Himalayan village-right?
