Trip itinerary, planning and photography by CRAVEL
"We vow to love Himachal, and each other forever!"
Our love affair & eternal attachment with Himachal is evident by the fact that our marriage clause involved visiting this wondrous utopia atleast once every year.
Himachal is Home; its people have become family after visiting it 7 times in past 5 years. So post the nuptial rituals, in order to justifiably fulfill bride's home-entrance ceremony, meet the extended clan and adhere to our oath, it seemed pertinent to pay our homage at Himachal.
Having covered Spiti Valley [read trip here], Jibhi-TirthanValley-Bir [read trip here], Kasol-Solang [read trip here] and other popular tripper's delights, me and my wife decided to compile the best pick-outs from our previous itineraries, and added some new ones for our trip to Himachal, meanwhile also considering the places with best chances of snow (since we have a soft-spot for snow).
After reading blogs (mentioned in links above) and listening to our past anecdotes, my best mate along with his wife also agreed to join us which doubled the elation and adventure quotient!
So after our one week of trekking and exploration foray in Meghalaya [read our Meghalaya story here], we thought to seek some respite from extremely hectic schedule and dial it down to average frantic only in consideration of the fact that we have 2 more people to chide us if we brought our hiking love between us and them.
Being a virgin to luxury so far in our honeymoon trip, we booked some of the most exotic home-stays with a sprinkle of our native rustic quirks to prepare a 'quasi-relaxing-luxury-adventure' journey.
