4. To get High
“Everybody gets High sometimes you know, what else can we do when we feeling low”. These are the lines from Justin Beiber’s popular song “Cold Water“. People can get high in multiple ways and when it comes to Himachal options are more exotic. You can get high on the amount of natural beauty state has, you can get high on the simplicity and welcoming nature of people over here and finally you can get high on some world class hashish if you are into something like this.

We don’t promote this thing but we want to be unbiased about what is a reality and what’s not. If you are into such stuff then do it in a prescribed or safe limit as it can be a boon or it can become a curse depending upon the amount of consumption.
5. In search of true love
What makes Himachal so lucky is the fact that not only the nature over here is gifted with splendid amount of beauty but also the people who live here are beautiful inside out. It is easy to get fond of them and like them in just one look as they have the looks which are divine but their simplicity is the actual beauty.
