 Shimla

The British empire may have ceased to exist, but its echoes linger on in Shimla (2130m). As the 'summer capital' of the British in India.
This was the country's focus for the better part of every year and now, it is the state capital of Himachal Pradesh. Today, its well developed facilities, easy accessibility and numerous attractions make it one of India's most popular hill resorts. Placed in the tower ranges of the Himalaya mountains, it is surrounded by pine deodar, oak and rhododendron forests. Towards the north lie the snow covered high-ranges, while the valleys broad whispering streams and swaying fields. Within the town are a host of splendid colonial edifices,quaint cottages and charming walks. Shimla holds a variety of shopping,sport and entertainment.

 Shimla was once part of the Nepalese kingdom and called Shyamala. In 1864 Shimla became the summer capital of India. Following independence, Shimla was initially the capital of the Punjab, then became the capital of Himachal Pradesh in 1966. Today, Shimla is a pleasant, sprawling town, set among cool pine-clad hills with plenty of crumbling colonial charm. High season is mid-April to mid-July, mid-September to late October and mid-December to mid-January. The best time to visit is mid-September to late November

One day, Vaivasvata, tha seventh incarnation of Manu found a tiny fish in his bathing water. The fish told him to look after it with devotion for one day it would do him a great service. Vaivasvatatava cared for the fish till the day it grew so huge that he released it into the sea before departing, the fish warned Manu of an Impending deluge when the entire world would be submerged and bade him to build a sea-worthy ark. When the flood came. Vaivasvata and the Seven Sages were towed to safety by Matsya the fish-which is regarded as the first avatara of Lord Vishnu. As the waters subsided the seventh Manu's ark came to rest on a hillside and the place was named Manali (2050 m) after him. As the earth slowly dried. Here arose a place of breath taking natural beauty - which was only appropriate, for it was at Manali that life began again. And today this legendary cradle of all human kind is a prime holiday destination. There are high mountains surrounded by silent snows and deep boulder strewn gorges. There are thick forest full of cool breezes and bird song. There are fields of wild flowers, smell picturesque hamlets and fruit laden orchards.
At the northern end of the Kullu valley sits the ancient site, but modern town, of Manali. It is a pleasant, if overdeveloped, town with lovely forests and orchards nearby for hiking, and good facilities for visitors. In the 1970s and 1980s, Manali was very much a 'scene'. In summer, the town would attract numerous western hippies and travellers drawn by the high quality marijuana that grows in the area. High season is mid-April to late June, mid-September to early November, mid-September to early November, Christmas and new year. 


 


Dalhousi


 



                             
                                                At the foot of the main spurs of the Dhaula Dhar whose dark, pine covered, mountain-side     reaches towards the upper peaks that  soar  into the region of eternal show is a  scenic  British built hill station' where a young and prematurely ageing  British peer sought peace, tranquility and respite from the wars he was embroiled in. This is Dalhousie, gateway to Chamba, the "vale of milk and honey'', sparkling and impetuous streams. The  north western Himalayas, comprising Himachal Pradesh  and the Kangra  district  of the Punjab,  are  a  kiker's  paradise, surrounded, as he is, by lovely valleys and towering mounting  in their  wildest and most magnificent aspects, From  the  beautiful valley of Kangra, one rises to steeply rising mountain, where the great rock wall of Daular Dhar towers above the towns in the foot hills. In the rough country-side, as contrasted with luxuriant Kullu 
and Kangra valleys, a narrow winding road, an off shoot  of the main road to Pathankot, leads to the lovely  scenic hill resort of Dalhousie, where the Daula Dhar Range just  begins to dip into the river Ravi. Built around and upon five little hills, covered with a  thick growth  of  ban oak, conifers and a large variety  of  trees  and shrubs, in nestles amidst stately oaks and pines. Skirting  these hills are a number of good roads of which the Upper Bakrota  Mall is the finest. Nearly 5 km in length, the road commands a double-barrelled panorama of the plains to the south and the  snow capped mountains  to  the north. Comprising of  five  districts,  Balun, Kathioang,  Portreyn, Tehra and Bakrota, at heights  ranging  from 1,525  metres (5,000ft) and 2,738 metres (7,800  ft)  Dalhousie's natural  beauty,  invigorating  air,  warm  sunshine  and   quiet surrounding  add, enchantment to its open and colourful  valleys, level  walks and treks amidst the dense forests. On a clear  day, once  can see the rivers - Chenab, Beas and Ravi,  meandering  down the  rose grey  vista of the valley hills while  the  snow capped ranges  of  Dhaula  Dhar rise to awe-inspiring  height  of  5,490 metres (18-20,000 ft) to 6,405 metres (21,000 ft). Over  120  years old, it owes its name to Lord  jemes  Romsey

  2. India Tours command the foremost place in the itinerary of most of the tourists across the world. Tourists from all across the world have looked upon India with a mix of both amusement and admiration. Interestingly, it is one country in all aspects, the kind of cultural, linguistic and geographical diversity which is here to be seen make the place look like a continent..
