Himachal, which literally means ‘located in the lap of snow’ (ice), is a beautiful state that has truly been blessed by nature. The place has a very rich history that spans back centuries. During the British Rule in India, Shimla was made the summer capital because of its pleasant climate even in the hottest of Indian tropical summers. The evidence of British rule is evident in the many buildings and monuments that are sprinkled all over the city. A tour to Himachal makes you privy to all the charming aspects of its capital, Shimla.

In fact, the main commercial hub of Shimla, known as The Mall Road or just as the Mall, resembles a typical European street with old brick buildings and pathways. The government offices are all located in such buildings that transport a visitor to a typical British town. In a way, Shimla became a retirement home of the Europeans during the British rule. Old British people moved to the city, built Victorian mansions on acres of slopes and spent their days enjoying the beauty of the Himalayas and the excellent ambiance of the place. Your tour to Himachal can be worth it if only to experience the age old ambiance of the city. It completes transports you to another sphere of existence.

There a number of places around Shimla that you can include in your Shimla package. Make sure that you have a good discussion with your travel agent and choose a place that can let you experience the multiple flavors and colors of this beautiful city.

A comprehensive tour to Himachal can include Manali package, which is another very beautiful city in the state. Situated to the top of Beas River and Kullu Valley, this town is the jewel of Himachal. In addition to sightseeing, Manali-Shimla package can be good for health tourism as well. The pleasant ambiance of the two places is an instant mood enhancer. It is great for people who are looking to rejuvenate their body and mind. The hot springs of Manikaran situated in Manali is home to hot springs that run down from the depths of the earth. These waters are said to heal many a problem. In fact, so hot is the water from these snow capped mountain springs that people prepare some of the dishes by inserting vessels into the well.

Shopping in your Shimla package can be a very unique experience. You get a chance to shop for some very distinct artifacts, clothes and other articles during Manali package as well. Shawls made up of the fur of special Himalayan rabbits named Angora Rabbits are exquisite. Adventure sport is another thing that you can enjoy as part of your Manali package. You can go paragliding, trekking, skiing and white water rafting, among others.
