Mountain Magic

Shimla, Manali, Kullu, Chandigarh


A classic Himachal holiday takes you to the British summer capital of Shimla and the laidback riverside mountain town of Manali. Revisit relics of the colonial-era in Shimla’s Gothic architecture and pedestrianised streets. Manali is an outdoor playground. Walks in the pine forest, riverside picnics, and river rafting – there’s no dearth of stunning nature and thrilling adventure in Himachal Pradesh.

  • Unwind with a relaxing massage at the L’occitane Spa

DAY 1-4

The Himalayan mountain towns of Shimla and Manali are popular summer getaways. And why wouldn’t they be, with their lovely pine forest trails and sweeping valley views, cosy little cafes and riverside picnic spots. Spend a few days discovering the heritage architecture of Shimla and strolling along the buzzing Mall Road. In Manali, you can pick apples in an orchard and take long walks on quaint mountain streets. 

DAY 5-7

Kullu sits by the River Beas and is a hub of adventure. You can go white water rafting, or try your hand at fishing, or just relax in the lush pine and deodar forests. In the plains below Himachal, Chandigarh is a lively city with bustling markets and some lovely outdoor spaces. Explore a colourful rock garden, or drive to a scenic lake on your last day.
