Overview & Highlights

With spectacular snowy peaks and plunging river valleys, beautiful Himachal is India’s outdoor adventure playground. From trekking and climbing to rafting, paragliding and skiing, if it can be done in the mountains, it can be done here. A convoluted topography of interlocking mountain chains also makes Himachal a spectacular place simply to explore, by bus, car, motorbike, jeep or foot. Every pass crossing into a new valley brings you into a different world, with its own culture, deities and even language. Villages perched on staggering slopes enchant with fairy-tale architecture and their people’s easygoing warmth. Hill stations appeal with a holiday atmosphere and colonial echoes, while backpacker magnets lure with their blissed-out vibe and mountain beauty. Such is the richness of the Himachali jigsaw that in McLeod Ganj, the Dalai Lama’s home-away-from-home, and in Lahaul and Spiti, with their centuries-old Buddhist cultures, you might even think you’ve stumbled into Tibet.
You will begin your trip with a good rush of adrenaline as you take off to paraglide in Bir. The trip would then take you to the home of Dalai Lama at McLeod Ganj, following which you’ll experience the Mini Israel at Kasol, and hop on to the hamlets of Malana and Tosh. The trip would finally conclude at Himachal’s best offering at Manali, with ample of natural vistas and hippie alleys to explore!

I chose WanderOn for the Himachal Winter Backpacking trip this Dec-Jan (2019-20) Starting from the first communication (pre-sales) until the trip got over , the team were very professional and genuine. Transportation services - Bus/Cabs were very good and comfortable. Accommodation - Very good and apt for a adventure trip. Food was amazing with a good mix of Veg, Non-veg and Jain food 👌 Team Captains and Tour guides were courteous and approachable 24x7. Overall the trip was awesome with a great group of fellow travellers who were like minded, helpful, and fun loving. Kudos to team Wander On , Team Captains and Tour guides : Sandy, Gaurav, Prateek, Ravi, Mifi, Yon, Sahil.

When life offers you a dream in form of a journey beyond any of your expectations that kind of journey changes you completely. With every journey, you come a bit closer to knowing yourself knowing the nature and her bounties, seeing and feeling the beauty that the world has to offer and understanding one's responsibilities as a human being. The Himachal backpack 2019 with wander on was one such experience an experience of a lifetime. We reconnected with life and with ourselves, The live music and group activities helped us connect with each other the conversations over bonfires didn't let us sleep even after a tiring day. The treks and the snow-covered lands and mountains rejuvenated our souls and ignited our spirits. The beauty of Himachal left us awestruck and for the first time, my heart cried an ocean with happiness and contentment. The beautiful sunsets and sunrises left me with wanting to meet and greet them every day. It was like dancing to the symphony of nature.A heartiest thank you to the whole team of Wander on for a lifetime experience and memories that will be cherished till we are ash and dust.
