Matiana, is a simple little village in the Himachal, about an hours drive from Shimla. If you're looking for a holiday in the hills without all the hustle and bustle, Matiana is the perfect choice. I spent my holiday reading, doing some sight seeing and in the evenings, enjoying some pleasant conversations around a bonfire with some Maggi and chai. This isn't a place for the traveller who loves to be on his feet, if you're looking for a short break for some peace and quiet then Matiana is perfect. Take some beautiful pictures, laze around and take time out to just notice your surroundings.
