A Fairy Tale Fantasy
Situated in the northern region of India, Himachal is synonymous with high snowy peaks, deserted mountains and deep plunging valleys that reverberate with nature’s beauty. This terrain makes adventure sports feasible and fun. It is an amalgam of cultures, languages and gods with a little influence of Tibetan heritage too. Once you land, the view will definitely take your breath away looking like something out of a fairy tale fantasy. A trip to Manali is a must, to watch the river Beas bubble and gurgle by.
