A spiritual journey to Dharamsala, Manali, Simla – and the golden city of Amritsar.
HIMACHAL PRADESH AND THE NEIGHBOURING STATE OF CHANDIGARH OFFER A VERY DIFFERENT TAKE ON INDIA.
Nestling in the north-western lap of the Himalayas this is a region rich in both culture and scenery. To the southeast, in the sunburnt Punjab, is the holy city of Amritsar, with its celebrated Golden Temple. To the north are the fabled states of Kashmir and Ladakh, where you can experience a completely different culture.
Of all the cooking styles native to northwest India, the tandoor is the most famous. Basmati rice also originates here, and popular dishes include tandoori chicken, kebabs and a wide variety of lentils (dhal) and vegetable dishes.
