Wonderful Wednesday 09/10/2013

Time for wonderful dreaming! Where would I want to be in the world coming fortnight?

Experiencing village life in the foothills of the Indian Himalayas.

2013-05-23 16.50.04India is so much more than its temples, mosques, tombs and forts; to really get to know India stay a couple of days in its rural villages. And what better place than with a view of the Himalayas?

P1030717Manali in Himachal Pradesh is a lovely place to stay. Undergoing a transformation from hippie and backpacker paradise to one of North India’s chicest holiday spots, old Manali has mantained its old village feel. And the hip restaurant La Plage makes a good lunch stop on one of your walks.

Or go to the lesser known Kumaon district in Uttarakhand and walk from village to village, stay in  beautiful restored village houses and end the trek in amazing Shakti 360° Leti.

Both regions can be reached from Delhi by car, train and flight (Manali only) and can be visited year round, although Shakti 360° Leti closes May-September.

A great way to unwind from our frenetic world!

Wonderful Wednesday is a biweekly series of places, festivals, destinations, hikes, etc etc where I would like to be in the world the coming 14 days, if no restrictions would apply.
