A voyage to the mountains

Just the chance to see the tallest mountain range in the world makes the trip to Himachal Pradesh worthwhile. But coupled with affordable stays that come with irresistibly delicious food and warm hospitality, it’s a wonder why people don’t flock here often enough. There are even huts and homestays that feature the comforts of a modern home. When visiting, be sure to take it slow, stop and smell the crisp fresh air and feast your eyes on the wonders of nature.
