Hello Sonali, you nicely provided information about the places to visit in Himachal Pradesh. Rightly said, Himachal Pradesh has so many unexplored places but it's just not possible to explore all of them in one go. I'd definitely recommend you to start with Nahan. And when in Nahan, make sure you stay at The Sirmour Retreat.
