Is the heat getting to you? Are the summer months in your city getting more difficult to bear with each passing year? Or are you an adventure junkie looking for the coldest options in winter months? Well, all of these questions serve up a common answer – Himachal Pradesh tour packages.
Himachal Pradesh translates quite literally to a snow-laden province. It is one of the rare states in India along with only Jammu and Kashmir, Sikkim, Uttarakhand and Arunachal Pradesh to receive snow during the winter months.
This makes it one of the most popular winter travel destinations for tourists from hotter areas. In fact, Shimla (the capital of Himachal Pradesh) served as India’s summer capital during the British Raj.
Today, places like Shimla, Kulu, Manali, Dharamshala, Kasol, Kufri, Rohtang Pass and Solang valley serve up as one of North India’s highest frequented spots. Most Himachal holiday packages provide the chance of travelling to each of these destinations and more!
However, since each tour package differs slightly from another, study it carefully and select your intended places of travel.
Apart from the wonderful overall climate in Himachal, it also conjures up some magical images. You will have a hard time believing the visuals you behold are right in front of your eyes and not out of some picture postcard!
Another exciting inclusion of some Himachal Pradesh Holiday Packages is the chance to indulge in winter sports. Activities like skiing are extremely rare in India and it is only Himachal where you could have the chance of experiencing it. Apart from skiing, paragliding, trekking and rafting are common fair in the state.
The food in Himachal offers an interesting blend of staple north Indian cuisine along with specific Pahari flavours. Siddu, a local dish made out of dough is a certain must try for all travellers.
Himachal also caters to all faiths and has a number of beautiful temples, monasteries and churches. Chief among them being the Sankat Mochan Temple, Manikaran Gurudwara, Hadimba Devi, Christ Church and plenty more.
Himachal Pradesh family tour packages include visits to all of these sites along with comfortable and luxurious accommodation options.
All in all, Himachal is a one of kind experience. The peace, calm and absolute tranquillity found here is hard to match anywhere else in India. With a rich blend of a unique culture and great conditions for tourism, Himachal should be one of the go-to places on your bucket list!
