Rewalsar, Himachal Pradesh 175023, India
My favourite destination is Emaho Cafe. It is a one stop shop for all your needs. One can sit here and enjoy various tea and coffee drinks. The cafe also sells items like incense sticks, herbal soaps & shampoos, oils, hand bags, post-cards, t-shirts as well as some traditional Tibetan clothing that is made of good quality cotton.The best part is the price here is fixed and all the proceedings directly go to the monastery funds or monks welfare.Best time to visitThough the lake holds high spirits throughout the year. The Sisu fair held in late February/early march, and the festival of Baisakhi are important events at Rewalsar.If lucky the lake can be seen wearing the white snow blanket during the winters.StayOne can find good number of cheap and medium range hotels and guest house.How to reachVia Air: The nearest airport at Bhuntar (Kullu) is 59 km.Via Rail:The broad-gauge railhead is at Pathankot at a distance of 210 km. From Pathankot the narrow gauge railway connects Joginder Nagar, 56 km from Mandi.Via Road: From Delhi one can drive directly to Mandi via Chandigarh and Bilaspur, the distance is around 450 km.

Weekend Getaways from Rewalsar 

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.
