Mist settling over mountain peaks, the first ray of sun lighting up the whole landscape and the sound of birds playing soft music in the background... if this is your idea of fun, then Himachal Pradesh is your destination this summer.

With coastal areas becoming inaccessible due to heat, it is suggested that you head to the mountains. Hill stations in Himachal Pradesh in summers are a different experience all together. These places are bustling with life and colour. Tourists from all over the country throng these hill stations. It’s the best time to experience the rich yet diverse culture of the country and also a good opportunity to meet new people. If you are looking for quieter destinations, head to little off beat areas like Palampur or Tabo. A small town in the Lahaul and Spiti district on the banks of the Spiti River, Tabo surrounds a Buddhist monastery. Complete with snow peaks and valleys, Tabo is a travellers paradise. This is one destination for people who just want to relax. You can sit back  and just drink in the scenic beauty all day. With no modern electronic gadgets, this town is totally cut off from the world. Leave your mobile phone at home, and get lost in the beauty of Tabo this summer.
