Adventure in the Mountains # 6: Andretta & Bir

8 –12 April, 2020 | 5 Days/4 Nights



Are you looking for a break from the madness of the city and escape to idyllic surroundings and try something new?

Wonderful World invites you to a 4-day break to experience the thrill of paragliding, try your hand at pottery, take a relaxed day trip to Dharamshala and Mc Leod Gunj and just relax in the peaceful artists’ colony of Andretta nestled in the picture-perfect Kangra Valley, overlooking the beautiful and formidable Dhauladhar Range.

There are few places in India that can surpass Andretta as an idyllic learning retreat. Located well away from the bustle of the Kangra Valley’s main highway and once-quaint towns like Palampur and Dharamshala, Andretta is truly peaceful and serene.
