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.

    Ritsmagical's 6 days trip to Himachal

    No follow up was made during entire trip in regards to hotel or driver..Driver didn't have any details as what places he has to make us visit and was un interested all the time..we called travel agent but no sure what they speak to driver ... infact driver was. Asking questions that how dare we complain ABT him . The itinerary which was made doesn't contain any local sight seeing like chamera lake or kalatop or Pancho Ulla etc...we had to pay extra to different driver to visit these places. The places they covered was chamba one day and khajjiar another day..which can be clubbed in a single day as distance between them was 25 Kms only and didn't had much places to visit. We as traveller don't know much bt travel agent shud have all those info.. The only good part of trip was hotel which I chose myself and gave that preference to the travel agent.

    Nigel's 3 days trip to Himachal

    The whole experience was great. We chose one of the two vendors offered to us by Travel triangle based on the pricing and the package. The hotel we selected had a beautiful view of the river and snow clad mountains. The trip was well organised and we had a great time in Manali Climbing up through the snow mountains of Solang valley was the best memory of the trip

    Nitin's 6 days trip to Himachal

    It was very nice experience by booking tour through Travel Triangle. TT assured me perfect quality and trouble free tour. We have family tour of HimaChal of 8 days and 7 nights and got 3 star hotels at all 4 locations Shukla, Manali, Dharma shala and Dalhousie in reasonable price. All hotels rooms and services were of good quality except of hotel vijay palace Dharma shala. Food quality was also awesome at all hotels. Driver and vehicle provided for tour was also good. We all enjoyed our tour . We got snowfall at Kufri Shimla which was memorable experience for all of us.

    Rameshs's 6 days trip to Himachal

    We enjoyed the trip a lot. Full of fun , the best sightseeing n wonderful nature seen n captured by my eyes n camera the beautiful memories. The bad thing about hotel is they dindnt serve the welcome drink both in shimla as well as manali. And it's dosent fill good to ask the welcome drink by the guest since we have paid they should serve at the time of check in. The memories is the Hamta pass we enjoyes the snow n sikking . When someone visit this place pls try the magiee in hamta pass it's very tasty

    Naveena Peraka

    Vijayawada

    Naveena's 3 days trip to Himachal

    Better not to book with this travel agency. Travel agent Dheeraj was only helpful with the travel plan and bookings. But when we needed help, he turned his back on us. Travel agency did not take much care in booking the right drive at all. Driver was not at all aware of our itinerary or cared to listen to us. And when he was asked to pick us up at a point, he straight away rejected though the distance he has to travel back was just 3kms. We explained this situation to Dheeraj for help, but was useless. Funny part is the driver dropped us in that location few hours back and it was so hard to explain this to the driver or Dheeraj. Even locals tried to help us explain this to the driver, but stopped after hearing driver's rant. At a point, we were stuck on the road in cold weather and helpless as we can't explain to driver and Dheeraj was rude. He doesn't know how to deliver client's feedback to the driver at all. Driver argued with us for 30mins after picking up and didn't respect us at all for the feedback. On the last day, we tried to give 200rs for the driver as he had to travel back 3 times to pick us up the other day and for the fuel he had to use. He didn't accept the money saying he need minimum 500rs or doesn't need at all. Then also he was rude and didn't behave well. Finally our trip was a disaster because of this agency's planning and execution. Only good thing was the hotel and it's food and staff.

    Prashantdhanorkar's 5 days trip to Himachal

    It was an overall nice experience to trip with Zainab travels, the assigned driver is very professional and friendly in nature. provided car is also in good condition, he takes all the sightseeing as per the itinerary. also, Mr. Ankit was taking updates feedback from time to time that was professionally good, all hotels are good in conditions except Chandigarh, if it's better then I could have given 10/10, In short, it's a good travel agency to book a trip to Himachal Pradesh(Simla-Kullu-Manali), go with Zainab Travels......
