Himachal Pradesh

Introduction
Viceregal Lodge, Himachal PradeshThe state of Himachal Pradesh, located in northwestern India, captures a traveller's imagination in so many new and exciting ways. Whether you are a wildlife fancier, a culture enthusiast, an adventurer or simply a nature lover, the state has the potential to live up to all your expectations. Whichever place in Himachal Pradesh you may head to, you will always feel the past colonial charm revolving around. Besides, there are places which will truly make you reminisce the Tibetan atmosphere.

Climate
The varying altitudes affect the climatic conditions of the state much. The conditions range from hot and sub-humid tropical in the souther low-lying areas to cold alpine and glacial in the norther and high-altitude areas of the east. March to June is the summer period while winter extends from October to February. Monsoons hit the state in July and continue till the month of September. With the arrival of monsoons, the whole landscape seems to have sprung to life. February, March and April are the most pleasant months of the year.

Important Cities & Towns
The erstwhile summer refuge of the British, Shimla is the capital of Himachal Pradesh. A famous holiday retreat for travellers, the charms of the British Raj can still be felt here. Yet another site to soak up the Victorian splendour is Dalhousie. McLeod Ganj is a chief Buddhist centre in the state. Other important cities include Kullu, Dharamshala, Manali, Mandi, Mundi etc.

People & Culture
Ladies, Himachal PradeshAlmost ninety percent of the state's population (Hindus forming the majority) dwells in villages and small towns. Buddhist inhabit the areas that lie close to the Chinese border. Agriculture is the main source of earning a livelihood for people in the state. Terraced field and small two-storey houses make up the rural scene. The huge congregation, organised at Kullu, on the occasion of Dussehra, serves as a perfect window to the village culture. The folk songs of Himachal Pradesh also hold great charm for visitors. These traditional ballads usually have a religious or romantic theme. Visiting the village fairs is the best option to be witness to it all. Pahari is the regional dialect of the state. English and Hindi are the major languages spoken here.

Famous Travel Attractions
While in Himachal Pradesh, you have plenty of attractions to explore and experience. The capital city of Shimla offers to take a walk along the Mall, lined with numerous sovenir and curio shops. Other attractions in the city include the Viceregal Lodge, Gaiety Theater, Jakhoo Temple, Tara Devi Temple, Lakkar Bazaar etc. You can also plan your trip to the closely located picture-postcard hill towns of Kufri and Naldehra. Dharamshala is known for being the abode of His Holiness Dalai Lama and the Tibetan Government in Exile. The Kullu Valley is of course the cynosure of all eyes in Himachal Pradesh. Rohtang Pass, the most stunning of landscapes in the state, is a site never to be forgotten. Other attractions for tourists include Manali, Dalhousie, Chamba, Kangra etc.


Air/ Rail/ Road Links
Bhuntar, Gaggal and Jubbarhati are three airports in the state, with regular flights of Indian Airlines connecting to Delhi and Chandigarh. Due to high altitude and rugged landscapes, the state doesn't boast a well-established rail route. The longest rail-track joins Joginder Nagar in Himachal Pradesh with Pathankot in Punjab. The state is served by a good network of roads. However, frequent snowfalls and landslides makes some of these road-routes inaccessible.
