Himachal Pradesh

Himachal, the "Abode of Snow", covers over 56,000 sq km (21,622 sq miles) of the Western Himalayas. The state's terrain rises from the foothills of the Shivaliks bordering the plains of Punjab, and extends to the trans-Himalayan heights of the Zanskar Range, bordering Ladakh and Tibet. Himachal's capital Shimla, famous as the summer capital of the British Raj, remains a popular destination for visitors. Manali, the state's other big hill station, is in the heart of the idyllic Kullu Valley. Transport Companies in Himachal Pradesh...

Watered by the Beas river, it is an excellent base for treks and excursions. West of Kullu, with the magnificent Dhauladhar Range as its backdrop, is the Kangra Valley, dotted with apple orchards. Its main town is Dharamsala, home to the Dalai Lama and a vibrant Tibetan community, and the seat of the Tibetan Government-in-Exile. In the eastern part of the state is Kinnaur with its green pastures and enchanting villages, while Lahaul and Spiti to the north are lands of rugged grandeur, with Buddhist monasteries clinging to steep, rocky cliffs.

Some of the off beat hill stations in Himachal Pradesh are:
Chail

Solan district. 45 km (28 miles) SE of Shimla.
THIS TINY HILL STATION is situated on a wooded ridge at a similar altitude to Shimla. Chail was developed as the summer capital of the Patiala maharajas in the 1920s. Chail Palace, a stone mansion occupying a flattened hilltop, amid beautiful orchards and garden, is now a deluxe hotel The cricket pitch, near the top of a hill, is said to be the highest in the world. The Patiala rulers, enthusiastic cricketers themselves, invited the Marylebone Cricket Club (the MCC) to play here in 1933 Walks through the deodar forests of the Chail Wildlife Sanctuary, where Scottish red deer were introduced, are the best way to discover Chail's natural beauty.

Narkanda

Shimla district. 64 km (40 miles) of Shimla.
NARICANDA, at a height of 2,750 m (9,022 ft), stands on the HT Road as it winds along the edges of the ridgeline dividing the Satluj and Yamuna catchments. From here, the Himalayan peaks are even closer, and the walks through dense temperate forests where spruce, fir and high-altitude oak take over from the deodar and blue pine, are quite spectacular. The best walk is the 6-km (4-mile) hike to Hatu Peak (3,300 m/10,827 ft), where the Gurkhas made one of their last stands against the British in 1815. The area around Narkanda is lush with apple orchards. In winter, the slopes are ideal for skiing. Transport Companies in Himachal Pradesh...

Kasauli

Solari district. 77 km (48 miles) S of Shimla. 5,000.
THE CLOSEST hill station to the plains, Kasauli offers the charm of quiet walks shaded by chir pine, oak and horse chestnut trees. It is at its best just after the monsoon, when colourful dahlias cover the hillsides. As an army cantonment, restrictions imposed by the authorities have prevented the old town from being taken over by concrete modern structures. As a result, old-fashioned buildings with gable roofs and wooden balconies remain intact on the Upper and Lower Malls, the two main streets that run right through the town. Monkey Point, the highest spot in the town, is 4 km (2.5 miles) from the bus station. Transport Companies in Himachal Pradesh...

From here there are clear views of Shimla, the meandering Satluj and Chandigarh. A particularly lovely trail across the hills is the 5-kin (3-mile) walk to the Lawrence School at Sanawar, a public school founded by Sir Henry Lawrence in 1847. Transport Companies in Himachal Pradesh...
