Holidaying in the hills is an experience unmatched and better still in the monsoons. The mighty, misty mountains make one forget all worries and transport you into a world of solitude.

Naldehra is a remote town tucked away from the city’s hustle-bustle in Himachal Pradesh. Located about 25km from Shimla, Naldehra makes for a perfectly peaceful holiday with its lush greenery, cool breeze and a teasing drizzle.
