TWO SIDES TO INCREDIBLE INDIA: AMRITSAR & SHIMLA

A hyperactive city with charming streets, Amritsar immerses you with its rich culture, history and culture. Some of the major highlights, such as the Golden Temple, Jallianwala Bagh, and frenetic old-city bazaars, make your stay worthwhile in Amritsar. Travellers always return back delighted as the city is loaded with beautiful sights, temples, history and more.

The yesteryear British summer capital of India, Shimla, is elegantly wrapped by a dense cedar forest and magnificent views of the majestic snow. British tried to recreate an English village in this Himachali Town, which still gives you a feel of some British town when you walk on the little lanes and roads alongside the colonial architecture and the beautiful English gardens.
