Queen of Hill stations

Himachal Pradesh is a vacationer’s delight as well as one among the best tourist places in the world. The state is tiny yet a mixture of culture, adventure and delicacies. It is majorly renowned for three of its unexplored hill stations. This indeed might be why the state is among the best tourist places in the world.

 

Among the three, one hill station is Khajjar. Khajjar is popular as the “Mini Switzerland of India or the Gulmarg of Himachal Pradesh”. This hill station got this honour by the Vice-chancellor and Head of Chancery of Switzerland, Willy Blazzer.

Khajjar

Khajjar is one of the most adored hill stations in Himachal Pradesh. It is positioned in the Himalayan mountain range and is closer to another hill station called Dalhousie. It plunked like a tiara of the tiny state and is located at an approximate height of 6500 ft. Khajjar is conferred with natural beauty and an cool, pleasant weather.

 

Densely grown net of flora, alongside the gleaming Himalayan peaks makes the hill station an adorable place for its visitors. It is most known for the trekking activity conducted here. Trekking is indeed the best way to travel around the hill station. Zorbing, is another widely enjoyed activity which involves the participants in “rolling downhill with a plastic orb”.

 

Dalhousie, is the next best hill station in the tiny state of Himachal Pradesh. It was discovered by Lord Dalhousie, the British Governor in India. The place got its name after him. The hill station offers most interesting experiences like “trekking, Victorian style mansions, natural springs and luring climate”.

 

Chamba is the third hill station among the three mentioned earlier. If Chamba is your escape from the routine life, then, you are in the right place. Chamba’s main attraction is the hills bowing down to the tourists. The hills welcome the tourists in their own welcoming manner. Other attractions here are river rafting and river crossing.

Enjoy Manali

Manali glitters down at each and everyone/ tourist and provides them with an eternal joy of living inspiring them to ‘go-on’ in life. The high snow-pinnacle peaks, curving rivers and gleaming tree-tops look like they are a scene right outside from some Bollywood film. If enquired about the best places in Manali a long list can be put in place.

 

Moving along the roads of Manali, an old Bollywood fan might feel nostalgic. The same apple trees, the flower trail of the ‘60’s, hippies singing around. It is a fun place.

 

But in particular, start with Old Manali. Why? I have an answer to it. Indeed, convincing. In Old Manali, you see from a height. And imagine, seeing a whole town from that height. Beautiful. The small town also has many things worth an arty eye. It is a lovely place, charm of the place is old-school and most places here have intricate wooden carvings on doorways. For around 6 months, a year, tourists are happily welcome, but on the next 6 months, it snows heavily and normal life gets disrupted. Fresh local cheese and jam is the specialty in small tourist hubs like the Bob Dylan’s café. This hotel at Manali is famous because you are allowed to enjoy a movie while drinking your sip of coffee.

 

The small town is very orderly and, as mentioned before, very quiet. It is also culturally rich. In fact, it is a place of culture, norms and traditions to perish.  But other places in Manali are also alike. The Hadimba temple in Manali is best known for the goddess. The goddess Hadimba is celebrated here. The temple is said to been built in the 1533. Goddess Hadimba was the spouse of Bhima, from the Mahabharata. The temple is the midst of Dhungri Park.

 

Among the best known Temples in Manali

Hadimba devi temple

Another place that elaborates the spirituality of the place is the Gadhan Thekchokling Gompa. This Gompa was built in 1969. This was built by the Tibetans and for Tibetans in Manali. It is like a prayer hall. But this hall is very beautifully adorned by intricate embossing on the wall. The idol here is of Shakyamuni Buddha.

Thus, a trip to Manali can be fun as well as religious, but moreover, peaceful, calm and cool. The place is the best tourist spot in India. It is the best hill station, one that you mustn’t have experienced ever before. Just so charming, you will say at the end of the trip.

 

Manali tourist places

Manali, a religiously visited as well as a place visited for its natural, appealing beauty is a well established tourist spot.  It is located at a height of 1,926 meters and broadens widely. It is a charming, tiny hill station in India.

 

Manali is hugely a tourist spot. There are places which are the Manali tourist places. They include a long list of places. Introducing you to some of them.

 

Solang Valley is strategically placed by nature between Manali and Kothi. It shelters trekking and camping activities for huge groups. The rock-climbing and winter skiing that is undertaken by many around the place is a pleasing experience. Also, if you want to enjoy the view from the Solang valley like a bird, go on a paragliding spree.

After the adventure at Solang valley, Rohla Falls is a diversion. Rohla falls is a good place to picnic with family and friends.

Nehru Kund also seems like a slight diversion from the two places above. It is a natural spring, which emerges from the ground, is spic and span. It is labelled after India’s late Prime Minister, Jawahar Lal Nehru. Myth has it that the ex-Prime Minister used to drink water from this spring. This is a tourist place in Manali and unifies our age-old history and beauty.

Like Nehru Kund promotes itself historically and is a thread in our long history so are the Tibetan Buddhist monasteries. Like Nehru Kund is a part of Indian History, the Tibetan Monasteries are soothing to the soul. These are a part of the age old history of a religion and the writings and paintings on the wall are its evidence. These monasteries are famous for their multi-coloured carpets and Tibetan handicraft.

 

Last but not the least; I would want you all to be introduced to another tourist place in Manali. This places if renowned for its hot water springs. People or tourists specifically adore this place also for its tiny, well-maintained as well the one and only carved temple of Vashisht Muni. It is built on the banks of River Beas. The Vashisht hot water springs are the tourist destination that almost makes you feel wonder from another world. It releases “natural hot sulphur”, just to enjoy the spring there is a division of tanks for men and women by human beings. It is hot through the year, despite the temperature decreasing.
