Well planned Tours always present you with best memories

On day 4 night we started to kulumanali in a mini bus non AC which coasted 140rs ticket and an overnight journey. The auto fares were quiet a bit costly in Chandigarh. We donno how the journey was as we dozed off due to the effect of the morning conference. By morning 4am on day 5 we reached Manali the scenic beauty of India. We were shivering badly due to the weather and we were desperately in search of a room. But we were told that the rooms are offered on package ( room +car+ tour). We got it for 4000 for a day. (12 hrz). Everyone slept for a 2hrs and me and my senior slept only for an hour and came out for walk around 5:30am on day 5. We had a cup of tea from a kettle where fumes disappeared in seconds and huge amount of fog and we could see the snow fall at the hill top. We rushed to the rooms to wake up other buddies and got ready and we got a scorpio vehicle along with a driver in the package so he drove us to solang valley where we first experienced the snow in our life time. The snow fall was very fresh as we were early there we played there for some time. Before climbing up we took the snow wear for rent fully protecting us from top to toe. We felt like mountaineers after reaching the hill tops and the drivers are having excellent skills over there and cars are modified to that terrain. We had some north Indian breakfast as well and also we visited hadimba devi temple in the evening which is worth seeing and hot water springs and also some local monasteries and went for local shopping and boarded the return bus which turned and twisted on the way due to road curves which resulted in vomitings for me and the bus was troubled on the way in spite of all these we reached Chandigarh on day 6 around 7 AM.

Himachal Pradesh Overview

Situated in North India, Himachal Pradesh (Abode of Snow) is surrounded by Jammu & Kashmir on the north; Punjab, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh to the south; Uttaranchal to the south east and the Chinese territory of Tibet to the east. The state is mostly covered by the low Shivalik hill range towards the south and the dramatically high trans-Himalayan ranges as you go north. Thus you can proceed from hill-town Dharamsala in the south, at 1700m, to Lahaul-and-Spiti, the northernmost district, at 6500m. This geography and the resultant cool-to-snowy climate, define Himachal's tourist attractions as well; in fact, tourism and apple-growing run the economy of the state. Sutlej, Beas, Ravi, and Parbati are the main rivers.   Given its mountainous nature, Himachal can best be understood in terms of its valleys. In the southern Kangra valley, Dharamsala and sister town McLeodganj are the focus of the Dalai Lama's Tibetan government-in-exile. In western Himachal lies Chamba Valley, with Dalhousie, a British-time hill station. Towards the east, all the way to Tibet lies the Kinnaur region, which was off limits for tourists till 1992 and contains villages and lifestyles that are still untouched by modernity. In the centre, the Kullu valley is famous for its apples, producing about 9000 truckloads of them every year. Here, Manali town is a good base for adventure sports such as paragliding, skiing, river rafting and trekking. December-March are good months for winter sports or to see the snow. The northernmost Lahaul-Spiti district is isolated, snow-bound terrain accessible only between July-October, with some well-preserved 1000-year old Buddhist monasteries and culture.   Himachal's capital Shimla, developed by the British in the mid-19th century as a hill station that helped them escape hot summers, is full of colonial architecture and churches. Shimla makes a good base for less-crowded hill destinations such as Chail, Kufri, Narkanda, or Kasauli, all located at comfortable altitudes of 2000-2750 metres.
