The first planned city in India is Chandigarh, a Union Territory that is the capital of both Punjab and Haryana. A historically Punjabi town at the heart of Chandigarh 's food and gedi culture (a leisure drive or city tour) with a good dose of modernity is what the capital is really known for.
Chandigarh is one of the favourite weekend road trip destinations from the capital city of India and other major cities, located at a distance of 265 km from Delhi, but it also serves as an important staging point when you head to destinations in Himachal Pradesh and Jammu and Kashmir.
Boating at the beautiful Sukhna Lake is a favourite activity of the locals in Chandigarh. The other important attractions in the city are the Rock Garden, the Leisure Valley & Rose Garden. The Rock Garden of Chandigarh is very well known for being entirely built from recycled industrial and urban waste, while the Leisure Valley is an 8-kilometer-long well-maintained park that houses the largest rose garden in Asia, a very popular attraction for tourists and locals alike.
Rose Garden is a flowering exhibit located in Chandigarh sector 16 that showcases about 825 varieties of flowers and 32,500 varieties of trees and medicinal shrubs. This garden is spread over 30 acres and is covered with an exquisite range of flowers, which makes it quite popular among tourists and nature enthusiasts, also known as Zakir Hussain Rose Garden after the former President of India.
The best time to visit the Rose Graden, Chandigarh, is between February and March, as during this season the flowers are in full bloom. During these months, the Rose Festival also takes place, making it a pleasant time to visit. It is Asia's largest garden of its kind and was established in 1967 under the leadership of MS Randhawa, the First Chief Commissioner.
The Rock Garden, located in Sector 1 of Chandigarh, is a large open-air exhibition hall showcasing sculptures made of urban and industrial waste built and executed by Nek Chand, a former Chandigarh Road Inspector. Located between the popular Sukhna Lake and the Capitol Building, it is a must-see spectacle! Also known as the Rock Garden of Nek Chand, this vast 40-acre garden is a vibrant mosaic of pieces of art and sculptures.
Sukhna Lake in Chandigarh, nestled at the foot of the Shivalik Hills, paints a beautiful picture. Stretching for a 3 sq. distance. Km., Sukhna Lake is a man-made lake and is the only one in the city of its kind formed by damming the seasonal Sukhna Choe (Stream) flowing down the Shivalik Hills in 1958. The lake serves as a ideal location with its pristine blue water for a stream of morning joggers and walkers who can also enjoy the fresh air.
Pinjore Gardens is a beautiful 17th century Indian Mughal Garden in the town of Pinjore, in the district of Panchkula, Haryana. The garden stretches over a vast 100-acre area and is a beautiful place in the ever-growing concrete city to unwind with nature. Yadvinder Garden, which is popular all over the world for its well-maintained greenery, soothing fountains and mesmerising bodies of water, is also known as the Pinjore Garden.
The Pinjore gardens are visited by visitors from all over the world to experience this Mughal development that India has preserved very proudly and carefully. A good example of terrace gardens in India is Pinjore Gardens. The Garden serves as the site of the annual Mango Festival during Baisakhi, between April and June. Not only does it have a vast expanse of beautiful flora, but it also houses a mini zoo, an area devoted to historic sites, a serene Japanese garden, a beautiful nursery, and several picnic spots.
Manali is one of the most popular hill stations in the world, nestled among the snow-capped slopes of the Pir Panjal and the Dhauladhar ranges. Manali has been blessed with exceptional scenic beauty, with jaw-dropping views, lush green woods, sprawling meadows carpeted with flowers, gushing blue streams, a constant fairy-tale like mist lingering in the air, and a pervasive pine scent.
Manali has every excuse, all year round, to be the tourist attraction it is, from museums to temples, from quaint little hippie villages to busy upscale avenues, river adventures to trekking trails.
Old Manali is a serene, peaceful place whose lingering silence is broken only by the twittering of the birds and the sound of the rushing waters of the Kullu River, swinging eucalyptus trees, endearing little eateries, small kitschy local market places, and cafes that serve delicious local food at incredible prices.
Two totally important destinations on the itinerary while going for a holiday to Manali are Rohtang and Solang Valley. The Solang Valley, 14 kilometres northwest of the main town of Manali, is one of Himachal Pradesh's most popular tourist destinations. Situated on the way to Rohtang from Manali, the valley welcomes visitors in immense numbers every year.
Solang Valley has it all. During winters, Solang Valley is covered with snowmaking skiing is a popular sport here, with training institutes and trainers located in the valley to supervise skiers and train beginners. A favourite for adventure enthusiasts, parachuting to paragliding, horse riding to driving mini-open jeeps particularly available for tourists of all age groups. Skiing is taken over by Zorbing when the snow melts.
You are likely to spot a big transparent ball with mostly two people inside it rolling down the slope during summers, another common attraction of Solang Valley, taking advantage of the slopes of the valley. Yeah, sure, Zorbing is as enjoyable as it looks. There is no way one could possibly overlook this beautiful valley while here, one of the most lively and enjoyable places in Manali.
Located only 51 kilometres from Manali, it is only possible to reach Rohtang Pass by road. The pass is situated on Manali-Keylong Road at a massive height of 3978 metres. A day off at the Rohtang Pass viewpoint is the ultimate and almost necessary draw of the itinerary while planning a trip to Manali. Rohtang Pass is a favourite among the group of film directors due to its splendid natural beauty. Many of the blockbusters were filmed here, ranging from 'Jab We Met' to 'Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani.'
Kullu Manali tourist places
Kullu, a popular Himachal Pradesh tourist destination, is located on the banks of the Beas River. It is a nature lover 's paradise with panoramic views and magnificent hills dotted with Deodar and Pine trees. In general, Kullu is associated with its sister town of Manali, which is at a far higher altitude and offers more scenic views.
Located between the Pir Pranjal, Lower Himalayan and Great Himalayan Ranges at an altitude of 1230 metres, Kullu is rich with apple orchards, pristine river streams and a wonderful climate. Tourists arriving in Kullu and Manali will enjoy a range of adventure sports such as river rafting, trekking, mountaineering, etc.
One of India's national parks, located in Himachal Pradesh's Kullu area, is the Great Himalayan National Park. The park, surrounded on all three sides by the Himalayan Mountains, is home to numerous species of wildlife. In 1999, the Great Himalayan National Park gained national park status. It is presently home to over 375 species of wildlife, 31 species of mammals and 181 species of birds. Because of the Deodar and Oak trees, this wonderful place of the national park becomes all the more appealing.
Located in the scintillating hill town of Kullu, one of the main attractions here is the Raghunath Temple. The temple, wrapped in an ancient legend, finds links to Lord Rama, and it is said that the idol of Lord Raghunath put here is the same as the one he used. The Raghunath Temple borrows its design and architecture from the Pahari and Pyramidal styles, although it derives a great deal of meaning from the legend.
Other than the spirituality surrounding the temple, it is also equally appealing to the scenes and views about it. A place of much celebration and colour around and during Dussera is the oldest temple in the valley and even otherwise assumes a lot of religious significance among the locals.
