Himachal Pradesh is rightly called the state for all seasons. It has a rich history. Starting with the Indus Valley Civilization, the state was governed by the Mongolians, Aryans and Mughals. Thus the state is rich in heritage, culture and cuisines from different periods.
Being situated at the foothills of the Western Himalayas, Himachal Pradesh is located around 6500 meters above the sea level, thus making it an ideal holiday destination during summers and the early part of winter. For those who love the cold, the heavy snowfalls are there to revel in.
Shimla, Kulu, Manali and Dalhousie make the famous vacation quartet. The snow-topped mountains, the verdant hills, the green forests, the red apple orchards, and the pure air- Uttaranchal has everything that attracts people from all over the world. It is also a ‘must-be-there’ for tourists loving mountain adventures such as river rafting, trekking, ice skating, para gliding and sking. Dharamshala is one of the coldest hill stations where one can witness snow covered valleys at a stretch, lush flora and fauna and freshness that Mother Nature offers to humans. When in Shimla, tourists can enjoy the Jankhoo Hills, The Ridge, the Lakkar Bazaar, St. Michael's Cathedral, State Museum, or just amble along the mall road.
