Overview

Located in the lap of the great Himalayas, as the name of this beautiful place suggests, Himachal Pradesh, has become popular as a perfect destination for all seasons due to the introduction of many activities, destinations and diversification of tourism in the past few years. 

Also known as ‘The land of Gods’, Himachal is blessed and enriched by the highest mountain chain in the world, The Himalayas, which not only offers scenic views but also provides this state with healing hot water springs and is of extreme spiritual significance as well.

The rich culture of Himachal has preserved centuries old tradition and one can find the traces on every corner while traversing through this state.

It’s not possible to experience all that Himachal has to offer in one go but in this 7 day backpacking trip to Himachal from Delhi, we offer you some of the best places to visit in Himachal Pradesh that you cannot afford to miss while here.   

In this itinerary, we have curated the best tour package to Himachal from Delhi where we take you to top 3 places of attraction in Himachal which are Mcleodganj, Bir and Barot Valley. 

Our first stop on this trip would be Mcleodganj which is famous for its sparkling waterfalls, Tibetan Monasteries, heritage museums as well as for it’s trekking points. In this week-long trip, we make sure that you get to see some of the best places in Mcleodganj like the Namgyal Monastery, The Dalai Lama Temple, Bhagsu Waterfall etc. You will also get to witness the magic of the mighty Dhauladhar ranges first thing in the morning when you open your eyes.

If you are someone who loves to go on adventures then you’d love what we have in store for you. After the local sightseeing excursion, we will start our trek towards Triund hill, from where you would get a panoramic view of the Shivalik hills as well as the meadows of Kangra valley.

Our next stop is on every adventure enthusiasts bucket list, as it provides the highest take off point of Asia for paragliding. Elevated at 8000 ft, the launchsite in Bir is world’s second highest vantage point and is extremely popular among paragliders and thrill seekers. 

After all this adventure, you would be in desperate need of some leisure time and Barot Valley with its cedar forests and rich flora and fauna is the perfect place to conclude this trip. 

There are various places to visit in Himachal Pradesh and each one is a display of a different essence, be it the culture, the food, the history or the tradition and while it’s almost impossible to  to unravel each layer in such a short amount of time, we assure you that this journey will definitely help you see some of the most unexplored places in Himachal Pradesh. 

Every season brings out different colors of this beautiful state, be it spring or summer but if you are someone who loves snowfall, then the best time to visit Himachal would be from December till January.
