Paying only Rs 8,100, couples can enjoy a warm stay of two nights and three days with free paragliding at Solang Valley. If guests wish to stay for three nights and four days, then they would have to pay only Rs 12,600 and then they could experience the white water rafting for free. Local sightseeing and drive to snow point is always free,” HPTDC deputy director BN Kapoor said.

Middle range private hoteliers are set to give a stiff competition to the costly hotels by providing their guests with modern facilities like discotheque, bars, welcome drink, fresh fruits and flowers in room and honeymoon bed topped with rose petals.
General manager of  Quality Inn, River Country Resorts Rohit Ahluwalia said, “We provide our guests with all the facilities that they would get in a five-star hotel.
