Must Do - Zero Point
A must do, a viewing tower here affords a remarkable panoramic view of the Himalayan range at an aerial distance of barely 25km and is the best spot for sun rise and sun set. Travel around, trek to the nearby villages and savour the simple lifestyle and traditions.
As discussed earlier, Narkanda is the best place when its snowing. Its place of sports and adventure. So if you are looking for one such holiday, this has to be your spot.
Narkanda is slightly higher than Shimla and the road linking the two runs almost near the crest of the mountain with a gradual ascent. One is constantly treated to a bird's-eye view of the different valleys as the road twists and turns from one spur to another. Especially breathtaking is the view of Narkanda from Saga, a small village enroute.
Things to do - Narkanda is a place for all the snow sports lovers. Ice Skiing and Ice Surfing is all done here.
So do not miss the weekend in front a dumb TV set. And continue to explore the Natures beauty to it fullest.
