A journy into wilderness

Dear reader,

Greetings from Shali Heights.

I am here to share my personal attachments with my home town and state, full of glorious history, rich traditions and culture. Himachal Pradesh is also known as "Dev Bhomi" (land of Gods), it provides an opportunity for travellers to admire nature and to learn about the rich flora and fauna of Himalayas.

If you have travel information to share or any query about travelling to north Indian Himalayas, please feel free to mail me or contact at my handy no. 0091-9816366111.

I would be eagerly waiting for your suggestions and comments.


Sanjay Verma.
