Chamba: The Chamba Valley at the northwest of Himachal is around 150km from our resort in Himachal Pradesh, which should make it a reasonably brisk 5-hour journey. Chamba is known for its national parks and various temples!
Kullu: One of the most popular districts of Himachal for a reason! Kullu is also located around 150km from our resort in Himachal Pradesh and makes for a particularly romantic getaway with its apple orchards and vast deodar forests. It is also an ancient town, having played a role in many ancient Indian epics.
Lahaul/Spiti: A 10-hour drive away from Palampur lie the now-merged districts of Lahaul-Spiti. While the valley is usually blanketed in snow even till March, summer opens up the motorable roads of the district and the weather becomes far more pleasant.
Mandi: Just 3 hours away from our resort in Himachal lies the Mandi district. Known as Choti Kashi owing to its numerous temples, Mandi can even be done in one day although we do recommend spending a night there to recuperate from the drive.
Shimla: The queen of the hills, Shimla needs no introduction. This was the summer capital for many members of the British Raj and remnants of its past can be seen everywhere, in the vast estates and on the outskirts of the town. Shimla is around 6 hours from our resort in Himachal Pradesh so it would probably be best to include this at the very end of your itinerary.
With this list of districts in mind, here are a few sample itineraries that take you through the best sights of Himachal Pradesh!
