Best places of india

 Beautiful places are often hidden away in the most easily accessible of places. To a person like me with less money than enthusiasm, Himachal is like a gift from God.

  • Khajjiar.

Residing amid the beauty of majestic peaks and lustrous grasslands, this arcane holiday destination would be everyone’s much loved pleasure, if only they knew about it. Khajjiar flatters the beauty of Chamba, a renowned place in Himachal Pradesh. Dwelling at a distance of 24 km from Dalhousie, Khajjiar is surrounded by green meadows and dense forests. Khajjiar charms the Dhauladhar range Western Himalayas at the height of 6,500 feet from sea level.

With its topographical resemblance from Switzerland, Khajjiar received recognition as India’s “Mini Switzerland”in the year 1992 by Mr. Willy. T. Blazer, then Head of Chancery of Switzerland in India

Khajjiar dwells on a small plateau along with a stream fed lake. Beautiful Khajjiar Lake is all the more a reason to be there at the earliest. It’s a dreamy destination.

Khajjiar is indeed one of its kind place with a rare concoction of ecosystem—Lake, Pasture and Forest.

This place is heaven for strolling and taking long walks. One can wander and hike through the pine trees.

The summers of Khajjiar often see trails of leaves that fall off the branch.

Winters enjoy resplendent camaraderie with snow.

Khajjiar is a scenic stairway to a heavenly destination. If you are really looking for something which is close to nature, away from the hustle and bustle of routine life, a place as placid, Khajjiar could be your call.

  • Kasol.

What could be better than a weekend getaway straight to the arms of Mother Nature !!!

A two day quick trip to Kasol is worth of 12 hours long journey from Delhi.

Best things to do and visit in kasol are—

♦ Trekking ♦

A trip to a hill station is basically incomplete without some adventure. And when it comes to Kasol, the place is full many trekking paths defined as easy to difficult and dangerous.

Leaving all the city comforts behind trekking is the best option to see the beauty of strong standing majestic mountains and wild running Parvathi River. The cold breeze trace on your face, the sound of streams and the chirping song of birds is all one can feel. The bridges are add on to the rustic beauty of this landscape. Trekking will provide you the best opportunity to get close to the Nature. A sight of all these can revive you and make you fall in love with the Parvathi valley.

♦ Malana ♦

( Shiv-linga in Malana, picture above)

A unique village with a distinct culture and people. Malana is famous for having a strict social rules which aloof them from the rest of the world. Malanans consider themselves a superior race and outsider as untouchables. As per locals, the malana is oldest democratic state and Jamlu Rishi inhabited this place.

The architecture of certain building in the village gives the insight of its rich heritage and culture. Temple structures made of wood with the sharp carvings are quit mesmerising. But outsiders cannot enter their sacred temples even if you would touch it then you have to pay Rs. 2000 as a fine.
