A wide spectrum of national talent, a variety of programmes and a splendid setting make Shimla's Summer Festival a memorable event.
Shimla also hosts the Red Cross Fair, Sports tournaments, a flower show, a photographs and posters exhibition and a fashion show based on folk costumes.
The Kangra Festival is held in June at Kangra.
On June's full moon night, the Ghantal festival is held at Lahaul's Guru Ghantal Monastery.
In the Mandi district, the Saranhuli fair is held in honour of Dev Kamrunag in the Chachiot tehsil. An unusual aspect of the fair is that all the offerings are made in the lake nearthe temple.
And course, given the time of the year and the possibilities it offers, there are various camping, hiking and trekking expeditions.
