Kaghan Tourism & Travel Guide

If adventure is what helps you choose your holiday destination, Kaghan Valley is an ideal choice. Fishing, trekking and such lush greenery are some of the elements that Kaghan is popular for. Named after the town of Kaghan, the valley has the beautiful Kunhar River flowing through it. The road to Kaghan Valley is a little tricky and if you don't enjoy hilly drives, do think again before heading here. The route to the valley is a little barren in the beginning but as you make your way up, you will be greeted by small villages. Shogran is a lovely spot in Kaghan Valley and a must visit. It is home to the Siri Payee Lake mountain and offers stunning views of the surrounding valley. Perfect for trekkers and mountaineers, there are tons of peaks here to explore though you may need a little guidance depending on your expertise. Rafting is another popular activity here and though it's a little advanced since the rapids are quite fierce, it's definitely a must try. Do also visit Balakot, Kewai and Siri and Paya. The small towns are known for their idyllic villages, refreshing scenery and warm hospitality. There are lots of hotels here ranging from budget to luxurious and the only hiccup to explore the valley are the tricky roads and unpredictable weather conditions.
Best time to visit Kaghan Valley is from March to June and from September to November

Weekend Getaways from Kaghan Valley 

Best time to visit - January,February,March,April,May,June,October,November,December
Once known as Shyamala, synonymous with Goddess Kali, Shimla has been a summer retreat long before India even gained independence. This famous hill station similarly has a lot of places and things to see untouched by time. For instance, take a vintage joy ride from Kalka station to Shimla in a charming toy train that will take you through towering Deodars, hills and villages. Shimla truly comes alive during winters when a blanket of snow covers it all over making every nook and corner gleam and glisten. One such place is the ice skating rink (natural ice) near Lakkar Bazaar that opens from November to December. More winter sports include skiing, which can be enjoyed 21 km from Shimla in Kufri. Adventure activities such as rafting at Tattapani or a trek to Shali Tibba and Pabbar Valley are also worthwhile experiences. If you are fond of haunted stories and interested in having your own spooky adventure, you'll love Shimla. A lot of people including the renowned Rudyard Kippling (in 'My Own True Ghost Story) have written various eerie stories set around Shimla. A place known most for giving many people the jeepers-creepers is the Charleville Mansion. Another time travelling portal is the antique bookstore, Marina Brothers, located on Mall Road, which is truly a reader and collector's paradise. There are many luxury and budget hotels here, meaning you'll never fall short of options. Popular places to eat include Wake & Bake, Ashiana, Cecil and Minchy's that serve commendable Indian and multi-cuisine dishes and delicious gourmet food.
