Weekend Destinations from Chandigarh

Today one of my friend sent me a message for suggesting destinations around Chandigarh. Because there is an extended weekend around 15th August, she wants to make best of that weekend. This made us to share a Photo Journey on weekend destinations around Chandigarh town. Let's look at various options and some tips about transportation & Hotels.

At broader level, 4 states are close to Chandigarh which have some good options to explore during weekends. Here we will be talking about good weekend destinations in Himachal Pradesh, Uttrakhand, Haryana & Punjab.

Here we have tried to list main destinations, along with some relevant links which share detailed information about things you can do, how to reach, main places to explore etc.
