Essential Information About Himachal Pradesh

List of important information as suggested by Lakhs of travelers

The ‘land of God’, as Himachal Pradesh has been nicknamed, is one of the destinations in India which everyone should visit. The vast options of activities and pastimes offered in this state will leave you spoilt for choice. Plentiful of opportunities for those who wish to explore their adventurous streak can be found in Himachal Pradesh. Some facts about Himachal Pradesh are that are unknown are that, contrary to what people may believe, the literacy levels in the state are quite high. The reason behind this is that it was the British capital in India and so the British made it a point to install a good education system there. Another fact about Himachal is that the word Himachal directly translates into snow and the state literally is places at the bottom of the great Himalayas.

Traveling in Himachal: The state is located on the hills where the terrain is extremely rocky. However, despite this, the Indian government made it a point to build effective road network so that commuting in and out of the state would be made easy and accessible. This is also a way of boosting tourism in Himachal Pradesh. You can reach the state through eight national highways and the roads are very smooth. Even within Himachal, the roads are spectacularly well connected to ensure that traveling from one tourist attraction to another is not a difficult task, because the last thing one needs when they go on a vacation is uneasy travel. There are three different airports in the state and two railway stations. Pick up from these places is very convenient - you can either book a cab or if staying at a hotel, ask them to provide some conveyance.

Food in Himachal: Enjoying egg and bacon or freshly made sunny side ups with a warm cup of coffee is the dreamy breakfast in the hills. Waking up and walking up to a cafe to devour this kind of food is something one would never mind grabbing. However, when in Himachal pradesh, ditch the usual and try out the local delicacies. A locally made bread called sidu with a cup of chai in the Himachal is what will make you feel completely at peace. Dham is a traditional dish and is a must try dish. To end you meal with a hearty dessert, you must try the mittha is the ideal choice. So, we advise you to try out everything as the state has a mouthful to offer.

Culture in Himachal: People of Himachal Pradesh are a mix of different cultures. People from varied cults and backgrounds came and settled in this state. This led to a cultural blast and hence, today there are many festivals and dance forms that the people of Himachal take pride in. The Himalayan festival is world renowned and is celebrated every year in Dharamsala, the home of the Dalai Lama. Himachal Pradesh also houses few of the most vibrant and culturally rich valleys like the Lahaul and Parvati Valleys. A fact about the Himachal Pradesh culture is that the Kullu Folk Dance (Nati) has been given a mention in the Guinness Book of World Records. Isn’t that wonderful? The sports culture in Himachal has been kept alive and cultivated by the people there. Hockey and cricket are the two sports that are very popular among the locals. The zealous inhabitants add to the rich culture in the state.

    Thank you Mr.Ankit for suggesting such a beautiful itineraries. It was really a quality time that we spent during our trip to Shimla, Kullu and Manali. The hotels & food quality was not too good but not too bad as well. The cab provided by you and the guy Mr.Sonu was outstanding during the whole
    journey. Thank you again for all your support and would love to plan future journeys with your brand only. Last but not the least, the things that you had mentioned in your quotation are all covered.

    Vpmunjal's 4 days trip to Himachal

    Everything is good except that before finalizing the package, its details must be made crystal clear. The client should not be expected to read the fine print. In my case, we had been told that we would be provided with Innova ac cab but did not specify about the seating capacity. As a result it w
    as very uncomfortable as we had to be on the road for 10 hours, I had asked for including sightseeing of our choice within a radius of 45 km from our hotel. This was overlooked and sightseeing was decided without our concurrence. This resulted in the cab driver asking for extra payment for one additional sight that we visited.

    Jitesh Kumar

    Kolkata

    Jitesh's 6 days trip to Himachal

    Journey from New Delhi to Shimla at night was very dangerous, as we followed some interior village route from Delhi to Haryana due to farmer protest. Please don't plan late night journey for other couples in future. Cab and the driver was very good. Shimla hotel was not up to the mark. Manali hotel
    was good. Overall, considering all points, I say my trip was memorable. *Include some adventure activities in your trip, it will help to get good feedback*. Adventure activities we performed in Shimla, Kulku Valley and Manali.

    Sarvesh Prabhu

    Bengaluru

    Sarvesh's 8 days trip to Himachal

    Our himachal trip in feb last week was very good. All hotels were good and food was excellent. Travel agent Meenakshi was very good. I asked for changes in the itinerary multiple times and also asked for change in the hotel multiple times and she politely and patiently worked on all the changes. Cab
    and driver Raj Patyal was very good. Couple of minor issues.. 1. Kamna Hill Resort in Shima was exceptional in terms of hospitality, view and food but the location was not that great. The location is far from mall road and the road is also not good. Our driver was from shimla so he was able to understand the instructions from hotel reception otherwise it would have been a nightmare to reach this place. Even the driver was frustrated with the location of this hotel. 2. Snow Peak Retreat in Manali did have a balcony but there was no privacy or view. The balcony was facing the hotel. From the balcony we could only see other rooms and their balconies. There was no mountain view from the balcony. 3. While booking the package, travel agent Meenakshi had convinced me that cab will be from their company and not from any third party vendor but of course that was not true. One day before the start of the trip there was some confusion as to who exactly our driver will be. Initially one driver had called but later someone else told me that he will not be my driver. Then another person called. When I asked him his car number he said he will not come but his brother will come. Ultimately the mess was sorted out and luckily the driver who showed up turned out to be good and the trip went very well.
