Scorching heat, body drenching weakness! Yikes, its furious summer time in India. Just April and we’ve seen temperature rising to 43°C. Survival of the fittest, as many homes do not have air conditioning and survival becomes a challenge. A suggestion, why not travel to mighty Himachal to enjoy a spectacular holiday. The high hills of Himachal have received fresh snowfall and downpour of rainfall on lower regions. Plummeting the temperature of the region. This is a perfect time for enjoying adventure tour to the snow capped peaks. Destination like Shimla,
Cool breeze flowing in your hair, freshness in the ambiance that how you will feel when you enter the foothills of Himalayas. Trust me travelers, it does feel heaven. As you enter Shimla, the magnetic aura of lush green valley is bound to take your breath away. The famous summer festival is being organized by the government at Ridge, Shimla.

thing to do while in Shimla. Let’s move to Kullu and Manali, as talked in previous post its home to verdure valley of pine trees and vista’s that inspire poets. Fresh snowfall has made Kullu home to several frozen waterfalls and destination of adventure activities for mountaineering, trekking, para-gliding, golfing, skiing, zorbing, camping.
Every season, tourists from all the country come here to trek and explore
new dimensions of adventures. The great himalayan national park is located in kullu district. This national park is home to 300 bird species and more than 30 animal species. There are some famous temples like Raghunathji, Bijli Mahadev and Hidimba Devi. I know, I promised to post about some fascinating myths and facts of old historical temples in Himachal. I’m undergoing some research study, will post it in coming week. Camping is the best way to learn about local culture and people. Beware of littering on the mountains, as
plastic polythene bags are strictly forbidden. Natural waterfall formed into ice needle is a normal sight in Kinnaur. Tibetan origin centric tribes are predominantly residing here. Sangla valley, all those who have visited will agree it is an old romantic hollywood movie scene.
The best time to visit these destinations is from April to October. At Lahaul and Spiti snow is covered almost all round the year. The culture of Lahaul and Spiti is rich and mosaic. Spiti valley is considered to be the center of buddhist monasteries. Ki Monastery and Tabo Monastery are located in Spiti which are one of the oldest monasteries in the world.
