It is a good idea to book a Himachal Pradesh holiday package now for the summer season in a few months as it is winter now and you could get a great deal on your travel and accommodations plans.

These are some of the best places to visit in Himachal Pradesh – but they are far from each other and the roads are not great. If you are planning a one week holiday, it is not a good idea to try and cram too many destinations into the mix.

Shimla was the British era’s their summer capital. The colonial heritage and influence still lingers in the city. This enchanting hill station offers spectacular views of the snow-capped Himalayan ranges. There are many places to see in Shimla such as Simla State Museum, Daranghati Sanctuary and more!

Like Shimla, Manali too offers breath taking views of snowcapped mountains and the Rohtang Pass and Solang Valley are popular tourist hotspots. Both Kullu and Manali are extremely popular destinations for honeymooners and couples and family travelers as well. It is surrounded by majestic hills and woody forests and is a trekker’s paradise.

Dharamsala, another major attraction in Himachal, further northe of Shimla, is home to the largest Tibetan temple outside of Tibet, the monastery of the Dalai Lama, who holds public lectures a few times a year. The trek to Triund hill is very picturesque and offers spectacular views of the Himalayas.

The KUllu district of Himachal Pradesh has many popular tourist hubs like Kasol where many trekking routes begin. This is also where the sacred Malana valley is located, in the Parvati Valley. There are many other places to see in Himachal as well, such as Dalhousie, Chamba, etc so a week or fortnight is the best duration for a holiday.
