Himachal Pradesh is perhaps Bollywood’s most preferred Indian destination. While it’s been a favorite shooting spot for tons of movies, it has also been a place a protagonist seeks solace in times of crisis and finds him/herself. From the treks that gave you travel goals in YehJawaniHaiDiwani, the poetic Lootera, the hard-hitting in your face drama Tamasha, Jab We Met, or more, the place has teased you with its serenity, photogenic locations, and gorgeous backdrops. Probably for the first time, Bollywood hasn’t lied to us as most of the attractions and activities we’ve seen our heroes witnessing and doing in Himachal is for real. Sometimes, words simply fail to do justice to the beauty of this place and you just lose track of time and yourself in these places.
Be it the attractions that offer a glimpse of the majestic Himalayas to the ones filled with the locals running cafes serving Mediterranean and continental cuisines, Himachal is soulful, alive and refreshing. So, if you’re here, plan a ten-day trip to take in as much of this destination as you can and get to know the place and people better. Also, when you’re making the itinerary, make sure the following make it to your list.
