EXHILARATING HIMACHAL

The state of Himachal Pradesh sits beneath the valley of Jammu & Kashmir. This location is an ideal place to visit if you want to step away from the humdrum of city life. Except for Shimla, the entire state comprises a majority of simplistic rural settlements that offer you a taste of the simplistic life. Himachal is riddled with peaks like the Kinnaur Kailash Peak, Indrasan Peak, Deo Tibba & Hanuman Tibba Peak and Shitidhar Peak. Mighty tributaries like the Beas, Satluj, Yamuna, Ravi & Chenab pour through the crevices of this picturesque state. Its elevation ranges from 450 meters to 6500 meters, infusing in differing types of weather conditions location to location, depending on their height.

Himachal Pradesh translates to the Abode of the Snow. Remnants of colonial influence are visible through some of the architectural remains found mainly in the station of Shimla. The village of Bir is famous for its Tibetan inhabitants who migrated from their homeland and settled here. The region is dotted with breathtaking monasteries and is the best location to indulge in some authentic Tibetan dishes like momos and soupy noodles. Other dishes like spiced lotus stems, fat stuffed steamed bread, and savory lentil soup are worth checking out as well.
