Holidify's Opinion

What's Great?

One of the least-explored villages of Himachal Pradesh. At close proximity from major hill stations like Manali and Kasol. Good road connectivity. Presence of ancient temples with unique architectural style.

What's Not So Great?

Naggar has no bus stand or railway station. It doesn't have any adventure activity. Lack the energy and enthusiasm that other nearby hill stations carry.

For Whom?

If you are interested in exploring the villages of Himachal Pradesh, Naggar is for you. This place is for all those people who like exploring the natural beauty of the Himalayas, away from the crowded mall roads, cafes and hotels.
