Shimla is queen of Hill Stations. "It is a delightful place to be, the air is clean and full of bird song and the climate is pleasant," pens the Dalai Lama, as he gives an account of his connection with Himachal, in the opening chapter of the latest anthology on Shimla, titled "Whispering Deodars: Writings from Shimla Hills".
Manali is a great place to spend your holidays at, be it any season, its got some exciting activities in store for the tourists! The summer months are a great time for trekking/hiking, paragliding, mountain sports, rafting and zorbing. But if you are a snow freak then you better be there in the cold months of November.
