Things To Do in Himachal Pradesh

Your list of the best things to do, compiled on the basis of actual traveler experiences

Himachal Pradesh is a splendid location for a vacation and just the perfect for those who wish to unwind and relax. There are many things to do in Himachal Pradesh. The state’s weather all year round has the properties of appeasing anyone. Even during the monsoon when there are heavy showers or during the winter when the snow almost engulfs the city, no one is deterred to move out in Himachal.

The state has a strong Buddhist and Tibetan presence as the Dalai Lama considers a district called Dharamsala his second home. Hence, the first and foremost obvious thing to do in Himachal Pradesh would be to visit the monasteries. These monasteries offer a sense of peace and tranquility when one visits them. We would advise you to stay there and spend some time talking to the monks. When going to Himachal Pradesh, plan your trip with us to get the best of the place. Be sure to visit places like the Spiti valley, which has a surreal feel and will engulf you in its calming ambience. When sightseeing, do not miss out on Manali, both old and new. You can plan a trip further up to Ladakh from Manali via the Rohtang La pass. Visiting the Rohtang La should be on your things to do list.

Dinner at the Cecil Restaurant at the Oberoi in Shimla is another thing to do in Himachal Pradesh. Treat your taste buds to some fine cuisine and savour it with some locally prepared Himachal wine. Besides these, one cannot forget to engage in some adventure sports in Himachal. There is not a single adventure sport that Himachal does not offer. From camping to hiking, there are sports like mountain biking, mountaineering and rock climbing, skiing, river rafting, and paragliding!! You will need at least five days devoted just to trying all these sports out. The activities are carried out under the supervision of trained and certified instructors. You will be given basic training before you go in for an adventure of a lifetime.

You should also try sitting in the toy train that travels within Himachal Pradesh. It may sound like a childish activity but it is quite a lot of fun. It goes from Shimla to Kalka. The train has been nicknamed the ‘crown jewel’ and this name has stuck since the time of the British. The speed at which the train goes is just about 22km per hour, but that is what makes it so different from the other trains. Grab a window seat and just sit down to breathe in the pure air of the hills.

When going to Dalhousie, make it a point to visit the sunset point. This spot is not to be missed. So when in Himachal Pradesh, make a detailed itinerary so that you do not miss anything that the beautiful state has to offer.

    Riddhish's 7 days trip to Himachal

    All together it was a good experience right from the pickup at the Chandigarh airport to exploring Himachal to our drop to Amritsar on the last day of the trip. We travelled in the month of March (6th to 15th). The driver was efficient and reliable. All the four hotels were good except we had a bitter experience in Golden Apple in Manali. We were supposed to celebrate our anniversary on 8th March in Manali and there were absolutely no arrangements made even though we were told that this would be arranged beforehand, there was a miscommunication between the company and the hotel management. The service was very slow in Golden apple and specially the front desk manager was rude and was absolutely not interested to listen to our concerns. They had a veg buffet and it was repetitive and options were very limited, we also found other guests complaining about the menu and quality of food during breakfast and dinner. We had our anniversary dinner on 9th instead of 8th due to utter mismanagement. Even though there were several calls made by Travel triangle to the hotel manager he was still very adamant to make the required arrangements for our pre-planned anniversary dinner. So finally the food was served in the room after multiple requests, it was a regular veg dinner (nothing special) and a chicken curry (all packed food) and two broken candles and a match box. Is this what we call an anniversary dinner? It was totally ruined and and absolutely disappointing, had a lot of expectations. The cake was horrible and so was decoration in the room. The food quality was again pathetic. The hotel staff in Manali always had this attitude towards us as if we were staying there for free. The food in Dharamsala hotel was definitely not good, but the hotel service and room was pretty good. We had a very good experience in Shimla and Dalhousie. Overall it was a fun holiday.

    Bangalore

    Niharika's 7 days trip to Himachal

    The experience as a whole was good! Was quite impressed with the hotel services at Chandigarh and Kasol. The hotel given to us for Manali wasn't great at all. It was an untidy place and we were also charged a 2% extra tariff on card services. The cab service & driver were excellent.

    Bengaluru

    Dhushyanth's 7 days trip to Himachal

    Everybody plans their trip through travels to travel tension free but our experience was just opposite. We travelled to manali and shimla with lots of tension because of bag packers tours and travels . They didn't let us travel tension freely . Even though the total amount was cleared cab and hotel people asks for money and the assigned travel agents did not respond properly. Much of the time was wasted due to this money issues. Please do not do this to anybody and next time I would definitely not recommend this travels to anybody. It's a big NO!!!
