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.
