Patnitop Tourism & Travel Guide

Known for its picturesque surroundings, the enchanting valley of Patnitop is a frequent leisure stop for travellers heading towards Kashmir. Situated in the middle of Udhampur and Srinagar, Patnitop offers you a glimpse of the striking beauty of Kashmir. This breathtaking hill station is situated on a plateau in the Shivalik belt of the Himalayan ranges. Originally, Patnitop was known as Patan Da Talab meaning 'The Pond of Princess'. Chenab flows at a close proximity to the city, and sturdy Deodar and pine trees envelope the entire region. Most long and short treks begin here and if you are an enthusiastic trekker, do ask the locals about the various options. Though an unexplored hill station till a few years ago, Patnitop has now become a favourite with travellers. Spring is a riot of colours here while winter offers opportunities for skiing and sledging. Batote, a small hill station 13 km downhill to Patnitop, is very well known for its apple orchards.

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.
