  • The trip was fabulous. Shimla is an amazing place with lots to see and do. Our tour operator was excellent. All of their suggestions and recommendations were solid. 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!

Kalatop Wildlife Sanctuary

Kalatop, a hilltop dedicated to Lord Shiva, boasts of a grand view of the Pir Panjal Range. The hilltop falls in the Kalatop Wildlife Sanctuary, whose altitude varies between 1,460-2,750 m. The sanctuary was notified in the 1970s to protect what was once a gaming reserve of the Chamba royals. There are no guided tours and visits are restricted to the Kalatop Peak. Most visitors treat the place as a local picnic spot.To avoid the crowds, take the 2-km path to Kalatop Peak. Most of the park’s steep terrain consists of dense coniferous and oak forest with the upper reaches rich in deodars. The wildlife here includes bear, leopard and the shy ghoral. Kalatop is an open forest, which means that the animals move in and out of it depending on the season.The Kalatop-Khajjiar Wildlife Sanctuary covers a total area of 2,026.89 hectares in the western part of Chamba district, about 10 kms. from Dalhousie. Fringed by the Ravi river on the north, it is densely forested with deodar, blue pine and fir trees. The sanctuary is home to a variety of animals like ibex, deer, leopards, bears, Barking Goral, Serow, Langur, Jackal and Himalayan Black Marten. Several species of birds also nest among the trees making it a birdwatcher's delight. You will need a permit from the Chamba DFO if you want to explore the sanctuary in a vehicle.
