In India, there are numerous beautiful holiday destinations. Recently there were lots of tourists crowded in Manali and ignored covid guidelines.
The current heat is still creating a new record every day and delays in monsoon have enforced the population to fly to hill stations like Manali, Shimla, and Mussoorie.
The main attractions for visitors are the magnificent hills, pristine valleys, ancient monasteries, rich heritage, and gleaming lakes combined with a serene atmosphere.

Barot is an off-the-beaten-track destination that is yet to gain the limelight. It has terraced fields, thick cedar forests, is situated along the Uhl River, and is surrounded by the Dhauladhar range of the Himalayas. The valley has been rightfully crowned as a “trekker’s paradise”.
The Chandernahan Lake is situated at an elevation of 4,000 meters and is covered by snow for almost 8 months in a year. This lake is considered to be holy by the locals. The lake itself is breath-taking, as are the sweeping views from here. The trek from Janglik Village, the last motorable spot on the trek, will take you through dense pine, oak, and Rhododendron forests.
Great Himalayan National Park, Manali
Touted as one of the best places to visit in Manali and its surrounding regions, the Great Himalayan National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
