“Breathless, we flung us on a windy hill, Laughed in the sun, and kissed the lovely grass.”- Rupert Brooke
Think of hills and the first destination that will come to your mind is Himachal Pradesh. Tell us if we are wrong. It would be an understatement to call Himachal Pradesh one of the most beautiful hill stations in India. The ‘Land of Gods’ is an ultimate hill station and the perfect place to start your married life. The hills, picturesque views, and your better half by your side! Does it get any better? That is what Ranjeet and his wife did. They planned for a honeymoon in the hills and spent 6 days in Himachal Pradesh and we think it’s better they tell about their experience themselves, from here.
The marriage madness, the processions and everything else about marriage can be gruesome and tiring but the exciting part is the trip you are gonna take together as a ‘married couple’.yes, the honeymoon and like all the other couples out there, we too wanted our honeymoon to be the best part about our union and we are glad that we can say it really was! We had a great time and made some beautiful memories which just accounted for a happy trip.

Weather In Himachal Pradesh In June
We planned for a Himachal trip in June, considering the fact that our city will be a boiling pot. Delhi in June is at its worst and we didn’t want to start our married life like that so a getaway in honeymoon’s disguise was a more than welcome idea. Our 6 days in Himachal Pradesh were amazing and great weather only acted as an added factor. It was raining cats and dogs when we reached the destination but it was cool and sunny on the days to follow.
Experiences From Our 6 Days In Himachal Pradesh
It’s only the experiences that you have that makes the trip a happy one. Saying our experiences were beautiful and unforgettable would be an understatement. We had the time of our life and we wish we could go back.
1. Kufri: Scenic Views & Adventure
One of the most amazing experiences we had on our 6 days Himachal trip was our visit to Kufri and indulging in some fun activities and enjoy the scenic beauty. Fucked on an altitude of 2622 meters Kufri is as beautiful as it gets. Another great thing about this place was how Instagrammable it was. We took some amazing pictures here and had fun.
2. Shimla Sightseeing
The Mall Road and The Ridge were the best part about our Shimla sightseeing experience. Shimla’s Mall Road is famous around the world and we now know why. It is not your usual Mall Road but something so different and a beautiful experience. The Mall & The Ridge are large open spaces in the heart of the town and offer picturesque views of the beautiful mountain ranges.
3. Rohtang Pass: Picturesque Views
If we talk facts, your visit to Manali is incomplete without a visit to Rohtang Pass. It is one of those attractions in Manali that has got it all and is hyped for all the right reasons and we got to know that when we visited the place. Tucked at 3978 meters, Rohtang Pass offers such serene views that one is bound to be awestruck! We indulged in some snow activities and had fun here.
4. Manali Sightseeing
Manali sightseeing experience was another one of the great experiences we had when we spent 6 days in Himachal. We saw and explored many interesting and beautiful places such as Sundernagar Lake, Kullu Valley, and Pandoh Dam. We also went to the famous Hadimba Temple and Tibetan Monastery. One of the best parts of the sightseeing experience was our visit to ‘Vashisht’ hot springs.
Our Hotels In Himachal
We stayed at Hotel Woodstay in Shimla and we are quite satisfied with the experience. The staff was courteous and very helpful and our needs were taken care of. In Manali, we stayed at Siyal Heights and our experience was equally amazing there too. The staff was polite and respectful and the services and facilities provided by the hotel were amazing. Overall, we had a great experience.
Shopping In Himachal
The shopping experience in Himachal is unmatched and the Mall Road in both Shimla and Manali just set examples for the same. We shopped for many things on our 6 days Himachal trip. We bought woolens for our family and many wooden artifacts and artforms which we found very pretty. An important thing to note is that Shimla’s markets are slightly more expensive.
How To Reach Himachal Pradesh
There are many ways by which one can reach Himachal Pradesh depending upon the destination they are traveling to and other such factors. For us, we went from Delhi to Shimla and we decided to take the journey by train as that is the most convenient way to travel and the most comfortable one too. We took a train from Delhi to Shimla and had a great journey.
What To Pack For A Himachal Trip
What you should pack for a trip to Himachal majorly depends on your travel month and quite naturally on the weather in Himachal during those months. Since we took a 6 days Himachal trip in June here are some of the things that we suggest one must take along if they plan for Himachal in June.
- A light jacket
- Full sleeves t-shirts and shirts
- Comfortable shoes
Himachal Travel Tips
Here are some travel tips and tricks that we learnt during our 6 days in Himachal Pradesh and we think this might help anyone and everyone who reads our experience.
- Shimla is slightly more expensive than Manali but the experiences at both the destinations are similar so plan accordingly.
- Carry cash and a lot of it. You might not find many ATMs at these places.
- The locals are very warm, friendly and helpful so try interacting with them.
- It’s better to keep 3 days for Manali and 2 days for Shimla as the experiences in Manali are much more and better.
- Do not forget your camera. Take it along to make your moments a forever thing.
Our Experience With TravelTriangle
Our experience with TravelTriangle was amazing, to say the least. Honestly, I was just browsing through the internet when I came across TravelTriangle’s website and I found everything here. My honeymoon was hassle-free, budget-friendly and my experience has been quite great. The booking process was smooth and the trip in itself was awesome. I will be coming back for more and will definitely recommend TravelTriangle.

Ranjeet spending 6 days in Himachal and then writing about it is one thing we adore. His experiences were so amazing to read about, weren’t they? If his experiences alone were enough to convince you to plan a honeymoon trip to Himachal then there can be nothing better than that but if you still have doubts we suggest you take a trip for yourself and decide.
