Kaghan Valley 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

Simla is the capital and the largest city of the northern India state of Himachal Pradesh, Dharamsala being the other capital. Shimla is also a district which is bounded by Mandi and Kullu in the north, Kinnaur in the east, the state of Uttarakhand in the south-east, and Solan and Sirmaur. Sitting majestically above the lush plains, the British designated the town as the summer capital of India. The higher terrains of the town reflect this British connection, embodied by its buildings, built in the Victorian style, while the lower slopes are occupied with Indian bazaars and restaurants. The nearest broad gauge head is at Kalka - a four- to seven-hour journey from Delhi. After that, take the mountain train from Kalka to Shimla. This railway track has recently been granted the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
