We recommended Jaime a getaway to the mountains, knowing that he was an adventurous chap. And he sure was excited to explore the northern regions of the country. So we had him start his trip at Amritsar. The spiritual city is famous for the magnificent Golden Temple, Jallianwala Bagh, colourful bazaars and the hospitality of the Sikhs. After spending a couple of days in Amritsar, Jaime drove down to Dharamshala.

Dharamshala is a city that gracefully flaunts its scenic landscape. The city is a place where numerous trekking trails start. Jaime’s next destination was Manali. After all, a getaway to the mountains is incomplete without visiting this little town in the hills. And he sure did enjoy his time amidst pine trees and apple orchards. So we also included the little hamlet Shoja in his trip. The village is known to be one of the most serene places to experience birdwatching and short treks. Shoja also has a lot of guesthouses that are nestled away in mother nature’s lap.

Jaime’s time in Shoja was peaceful. After a couple of days, he drove down to Kotgarh in the car we helped him hire. The infinite stretches of apple orchards that awaited him was something that absolutely enchanted him. Jaime sure did find comfort in the scenic lands of Kotgarh. But we wanted him to end his trip on a high. Which is why we selected Shimla as the final destination of his getaway to the mountains. The Seog National Park, the natural ice skating rink that’s formed during winters are just some of the many reasons to visit Shimla.

Jaime’s getaway to the mountains ended up being just what he wanted it to be. Throughout his trip, he was driven across each city and made a roadtrip out of his getaway to the mountains. He stayed in comfortable homestays and some good boutique hotels. Get in touch with us if you too want to experience a similar trip.
