Hi, I see there are no places from Himachal Pradesh.
I think places like Manali, Shimla, Dharamshala, Mandi have lot of places you can choose from.

I want to bring you that Rameswaram is one of biggest tourism place in India, daily many foreigners and indian citizens visiting. But the beach is not clean and smelling very bad, many fishes are dead and floating in water. So kindly take necessary action to avoid spreading of disease and we must welcome all foreigners and they must not avoid India for unhygenic and unsafe places and also must protect our citizens too. So please kindly take necessary action. Thank you.
