Even people from Mumbai, Pune and Ahmedabad are looking for plots and good quality flats in Himachal.

Real estate developers are witnessing greater demand for plots and independent houses that are within 4-5 hours of driving distance from metro cities as the Covid-induced lockdown forced people to think about a second home.

With prices as low as Rs 12 lakh, people are investing in Haridwar, Dehradun, Rishikesh, and towns like Shimla and Solan in Himachal Pradeshand Dapoli, a coastal city which is a five-hour drive away from Mumbai and Pune.
