There are often very few places that you get to visit all round the year and still not be bored by them. One of them is the village of Chitkul that lays near the  Indo-Tibet border perching at the height of 3450m is the last spot you can travel without a visa in India. Studded with fruit orchards of apples and endless organic plantations, an offbeat stay here would mean the best of workcations.

  1. Fruity greenery

Wander among the apple orchards and dense yet lush green forest canopies of the Pabbar valley where you can relish these one of a kind fruits and also enjoy a ball of time while you camp in these woods with your squad either in luxury or in adventure or both! Walking and pleasing of eyes in the orchards is definitely one of the best offbeat activities to do in Himachal Pradesh.

Thanedar is one pleasant spot that makes for the perfect place for couples with its immensely luxurious , calm and amenity filled resort and what makes it appealing is the location of the resorts in the woods letting you and your partner steal the views of eternal nature while you have comfortable moments of privacy !
