Last few months have been really hectic for both of us. While Vishu was busy in the office with his umpteen assignments, Saumya, on the other hand, had loads of tasks to complete post her trips to South India and Ladakh. As work was taking its toll on both of us, we decided to sneak out of Delhi for a quick weekend getaway in the mountains. One thing that we like the most about staying in NCR is that we can easily get to the mountains on an overnight journey. Both Uttarakhand and Himachal surround us really well. This time we picked up Himachal Pradesh and headed to a small village in Sirmour district known as Kanera. Kanera is a lesser explored, sparsely populated and a beautiful village in the Sirmour Himachal Pradesh. Exploring Kanera Village - An itinerary blog of a peaceful weekend getaway will give you all the things you want to know about this serene piece of land. Carnoustie Himalayan Eco Resort in the Kanera village is one of the best stay options there.
