Places to Visit in Himachal – When the word tourism kicks in for tourists from outside India, it is Mumbai, Delhi, and Goa’s big states are the first preference to see India in a broader view.

But when we Indians want to go on a trip, we look away from metro cities to a place where we can chill out, and when it comes to adventure too, it is trekking, river rafting, or at least mountains to be around with the best view and least people. Isn’t it so?

So, leaving the most common Himachal places like Manali, Shimla, Mussoorie, etc., we are taking you to an unexplored yet most beautiful area of Himachal Pradesh.

01. Thanedar

Thanedar is 80 Km from Shimla (A three hours drive).

The enchanting beauty of apple and cherry orchards will rejuvenate you completely.

This garden’s beauty is that you will find less crowd due to the few miles of extra travel.

The weather is dry and cold, and the activity is plucking apples and fruits from myriad trees. Surely a wonderful place to spend a weekend.
