If the cool air of the mountains lifts your spirits, a holiday in Himachal is just the one for you. Shimla is your typical hill station with a pleasing climate and enough colonial relics to admire as you stroll on the Ridge. Drive further into the mountains and you arrive at Dharamshala. This town is wooded with oak, deodar and coniferous trees and snow-capped mountains on three sides. We have added a halt in Chandigarh on your way back so that the long drive is divided into two shorter parts.!
