We loved our hotel and the location. All the tours were high-quality and we experienced no difficulties with pickups. Mr. Nitin was extremely pleasant to work with and truly wanted us to have a fabulous time.

  • We cannot recommend this travel company enough! My husband and I had been wanting to go to India for quite some time but had not done so due to lack of time to plan a worthwhile trip. Booking with this company was exactly what we needed--we told them the types of places and sites we wanted to see and they took care of the rest.

  • I got exactly the vacation I wanted for almost no work and probably cheaper than I could have done it myself. I told this travel company what I wanted and they just did the rest. The hotels and tours/activities were great! Couldn't have asked for more. Great service too they were very responsive and helpful!

Kangra Fort

A photograph taken from inside the Ambika Mata Temple at top of Kangra Fort. The Kangra Fort was worked by the imperial Rajput group of Kangra State (the Katoch line), which follows its causes to the antiquated Trigarta Kingdom, said in the Mahabharata epic. It is the biggest stronghold in the Himalayas and most likely the most seasoned dated fortification in India. The fortress of Kangra opposed Akbar's attack in 1615. Nonetheless, Akbar's child Jehangir effectively curbed the fortification in 1620, constraining the accommodation of the Raja of Chamba, "the best of the considerable number of rajas in the region".[1] Mughal Emperor Jahangir with the assistance of Suraj Mal garrisoned with his troops. The Katoch Kings more than once plundered Mughal controlled districts, debilitating the Mughal control and with the decrease of Mughal force, Raja Sansar Chand-II succeeded in recouping the antiquated fortress of his precursors, in 1789. Maharaja Sansar Chand battled different fights with Gurkhas on one side and Sikh King Maharaja Ranjit Singh on the other. Sansar Chand used to keep his neighboring Kings imprisoned, and this prompted tricks against him. Amid a fight between the Sikhs and Katochs, the entryways of the fortress had been kept open for supplies. The Gurkha armed force entered the opened hardly furnished doors in 1806. This constrained a cooperation between Maharaja Sansar Chand and Maharaja Ranjit Singh. Accordingly in 1809 the Gurkha armed force was crushed and they needed to withdraw crosswise over Sutlej River. From here a long and limited section paves the way to the highest point of the fortification, through the Ahani and Amiri Darwaza (door), both credited to Nawab Saif Ali Khan, the principal Mughal Governor of Kangra. Around 500 feet from the external entryway the section turns round at a sharp edge and goes through the Jehangiri Darwaza. A British battalion involved the fortress until it was vigorously harmed in a quake on the fourth of April, 1905. The sanctuary is distinguished as one among the 52 Shakti Peethas. It is additionally a standout amongst the most prestigious sanctuaries of Goddess Durga
