Essay On A Visit To A Tourist Place
Our school had organized a trip to a tourist place in a mountainous region during the summer vacation. The trip was for 15 days and we were going to Shimla, Kullu, and Manali. Everyone was eager and excited to go there. Our joy knew no bounds, Himachal Pradesh is indeed an attraction for everybody.
We left Pune and traveled to Delhi by train. We traveled from Delhi by bus and reached Shimla in the morning. We went to the hotel where our rooms were reserved. We organized our luggage, took a bath, and got ready for sightseeing. Shimla is the summer capital of Himachal Pradesh. We first visited the palace of Maharaja of Patiyala which has now been converted into a hotel. It has the world’s highest cricket ground.
We also visited an old Golf course situated a few kilometers away from Shimla. On our way, we saw houses with red roofs, dense green forests of deodar. vast meadows of flowers, zigzag roads, and snow-clad mountains. On one side of the road was river Beas, running swiftly. Its rippling sound was very melodious. It was a grand feast to our hungry eyes.
Then we reached Kullu and Manali. This is called heaven on earth. The city is surrounded by snow-clad mountains. There were rose plants bearing a bunch of flowers in every nook and corner of the city. The atmosphere was very pleasant. A short distance from there is Sundarnagar, where there is a lake formed by carving the mountain. The beauty of this mountain mesmerized us. We also visited a temple of Bhimas’s wife and Ghatotkachas mother Hidimba there. We saw the green fields, apple orchards, beautiful women, and girls in colorful dresses. We also visited a sweater-making factory. Many of us bought sweaters and shawls from there.
There is one more center of attraction in Himachal Pradesh, Dalhousie. Its untouched beauty, the terraced fields, and the dense green forests attract tourists. We grabbed the opportunity of observing Khajihaar Lake. We were thrilled to see wild animals like leopards, deer here. The mountains were simply enchanting.
Entire Himachal Pradesh is like heaven. One’s life is in vain who hasn’t taken this tour. Its beauty cannot be just written or explained, it has to be experienced.
