Overview

This festive season, Celebrate the New year by ticking off that Backpacking Trip on your bucket list that you keep postponing by joining us on our exclusive Himachal Explorer edition trip.  

Switch your party blazers with the blaze of a campfire in the heart of the great Himalayas and let us tell you all about the once-in-a-year 10-day trip that is the Himachal Explorer Edition. 

The terrain of this hilly state begins with the scenic view of the Shivalik range, expanding its snowy tapestry to McLeodGanj district and the outskirts of Dharamshala city.   

Because of its mystifying valleys, ceaselessly flowing rivers, and ivory mountains, it has become one of the most popular destinations among travelers.

On the Himachal Explorer Edition, we begin our journey from the famous Majnu ka Tila bus stands in New Delhi for an overnight drive to Mcleodganj. 

To make sure that you get the most authentic experience, we take you to see the sparkling  Bhagsunag Waterfalls, followed by a stroll through the Tibetan market, and let you explore the array of cafes and restaurants Mcleodganj has to offer. The festivities would kickstart on the second day itself as in the evening, we'd celebrate Christmas by indulging in celebrations with DJ, Food, Cake, a Bonfire, and more. 

Our next stop, Bir, is famous among all adventure enthusiasts for being the best rendezvous point for having a paragliding session, providing a high altitude of 8000ft as its take-off spot which is the Highest Paragliding Take Off point in Asia and only the Second Highest in the World. Being that high will surely make you feel like you are on top of the world!

Then, we take our expedition through the picturesque Tirthan Valley as we head towards Jibhi for a relaxed evening all while enjoying the sight of pine forests, cedar trees, and elevated slopes embellished by wooden houses covered in thick powdered snow. 

On our fifth day, we start the Trek to Jalori pass which ends on a soul-fulfilling note as you witness the magic of Serolsar Lake and come into contact with the spiritual essence that the visit to Shringa Rishi Temple has to offer.

Before moving on to our next adventure, we take a breather and spend a day full of leisure in Kasol to relax and hop through the various cafes. However, if you are still riding the adrenaline high, we will take you hiking to Chalaal and stay overnight at Kasol.

We will also visit the Manikaran Temple/Gurudwara which is a sacred pilgrimage center for both Hindus and Sikhs. The next excursion would be extra special because, by the time you reach this enthralling destination, you would be counting down the hours until the New Year! 

After spending a night at Kasol, we will head towards the greatest gift the Himalayas have to offer,  the humble abode of the Valley of the gods that is Manali. Since this popular hill station has a lot of tourist attractions, like the renowned Mall road, Hadimba temple, Vashist Hot water springs, etc at its disposal, we take you for local sightseeing so that you get the most out of this experience. In the evening, we'll celebrate New year in Manali with DJ, Groovy music, scrumptious meals, and good company

And what better way is there to start the New year than riding the adrenaline high that only Solang Valley can offer, with its variety of adventure sports like Skiing, Zipline, and ATV bike rides And, if you want to try something different and unique, you can always opt for Zorbing!

All this kick and rush of endorphins will definitely leave you in need of a much-needed relaxation time and once you have recharged your batteries, we will start our return journey. 

If you have been waiting for the right time, wait no more, because this is the best time to visit Himachal and unravel all of its mysteries.
