3 days in Shimla
Activities will include escaping from the plains, which is what the British designed Shimla to achieve. The train chugging up, luxury stroll on The Mall, touring historic buildings, and picnics are just a few of the activities planned.
For four days, Kullu Valley
Unmatched Himalayan scenery with rivers, torrents, and streams fed by glaciers coursing down the lush slopes in all directions, and a long-isolated indigenous community living in harmony with the local nature. In these four days, drives, walks, and excursions explore enchanted landscapes, woodlands, birdwatching, and tranquil villages.
For three days, Kangra Valley
The valley, which is located in the lower Himalayas and has a towering snow-capped mountain above it and has historically stayed connected to the plains, has a more influenced culture that has developed in the production of beautiful pottery, weaving, and miniature paintings. Days will be spent admiring the sloping terraced fields, tea estates, mountain trains, historic temples, Gaddi villages, and even ascending to McLeodganj, the Dalai Lama’s residence.
Amritsar for a day, then return to New Delhi
Amritsar, which is not in the Himalayas but is nearby, is not to be missed for the sombre communal events held at the Golden Temple, the Beating the Retreat spectacle on the Border, and the delectable Punjabi food. Following the train transfer back to New Delhi, the tour will come to a close.
