First time to Himachal

Hey!

I'm travelling to Himachal Pradesh for the first time and I wanted to know what are the best places to visit?

After I did my research, there are a couple of places I came across such as:

-Manali

-Dharamshala

-Solang Valley

-Dalhousie

-Shimla

-Kasauli

Your help is much appreciated. Thank you!

1. Re: First time to Himachal

Anchay,

Two factors will allow to suggest better - what kind of trip you looking for (commercial, total relax, adventure etc).??

and secondly, what kind of people you traveling ( young, elder, family kids etc)??

If you have only 3-4 days, any station as mentioned by you will be fine,

If you can afford to be on road more with extra days, then try eastern Himachal - districts like Kinnaur, Spiti and going upto Lahul in North Himachal. the geography, views, roads, people are all different from what you'll get in the stations like commercial - Shimla, Manali etc in western Himahcla or rather central. These will give you more staying options with all kind of luxuries and facilities, restaurant bars etc.

Kasuali, Dalhousie + khajjiar , Manali will be good choices in case you opt for the commercial places. provide details for the above two questions for detailed suggestions.

Cheers.
