North India Tours: a Unique Travel Experience

By Renu Tichkule Subscribe to RSS | November 29th 2011 | Views:

India is a county that has ancient roots that go all the way back to prehistoric times. An amalgamation of colorful history, interesting traditions and inviting folklore, any North India tour is a delight to anticipate and a pleasure to savor. North India tour packages boast of several attractions that can lure the most pessimistic traveler. Right from the mystique of the valleys of Himachal Pradesh to the spiritual haven in Uttarakhand, the Indian experience resonates with the mystique and charm of one of the most vibrant cultures in the world.

Himachal Pradesh:

Dalhousie: A peaceful calm descends on your soul as you feast your eyes on the colonial charm and mesmerizing beauty of the carpet of pines, deodars and oaks that dot the landscape. From Dalhousie you can also visit the Panjpulla Bridges, Bakrota hills and the Kalatope sanctuary.

Shimla: One of the most popular destinations for North India tours, Shimla holds its appeal as one of the best getaway during the sweltering summer months. One of the rare cases where civilization and nature exist and evolve side by side, Shimla boasts beautiful walks, scenic views and offers several spots of historical significance like the Viceregal Lodge, the Barnes court and the Mall. If you’re looking for an adventurous twist to your vacation, try the trek between Kamina and Tattapani.

Manali: Blessed with a breathtaking landscape that whispers to the clear, gurgling Beas River, Manali is a favorite among tourists looking for an escape from the dreary insipidity of the cities and among trekkers who want to enjoy the charms of Mother Nature at first hand.

All the cities of Himachal Pradesh are accessible from each other by road and rail.

Jammu and Kashmir: The playground of the celestials

No place has inspired such poetry and adulation as Jammu and Kashmir. Sheltered by snow clad mountains, pampered by flowering orchards and decorated by the emerald green of temperate forests, Jammu and Kashmir has held a magnetic charm for every mortal, from emperors to trekkers, from honeymooners to spiritualists. Its timeless beauty makes Jammu and Kashmir a heaven on earth and a perfect destination for your North India tour.

Places of interest include the Dachigam National Park and the rich flora and fauna that can be enjoyed in every walk among the maple and horse chestnut trees. The Makara Sankranti and Lohri festivals are a good time to see the valley at its vibrant best.

Jammu and Kashmir is accessible from Delhi by Rail, Road and by air. Road journeys take about 9 to 10 hours while flights take approximately one hour and 10 minutes to reach.


A relatively young state, Uttarakhand has a unique blend of scenic spots and places of religious significance that make it an important part of any North India tour packages. Surrounded by imposing glaciers and teased by enchanting little brooks, Uttarakhand is certainly a visual treat to sore eyes. The places of tourist interest would include Mussourie and Nainital (hill stations), Corbett National park and Gangotri National Park. The adventure seekers can enjoy rafting, skiing and trekking on the hilly windings of Uttarakhand.
