The state of Himachal Pradesh came into existence with the partition of Punjab and Haryana in 1966.
Himachal Pradesh is totally a mountain state and a delight for the visitors, particularly during the summer season when people flock to this tiny hill station to escape the scorching heat of the plains. It takes in the transition zone from the plains to the high Himalayas and, in the trans Himalayan region of Lahaul and Spiti.
High points for the visitors include Shimla, which used to be the 'summer capital' of British India and still one of India's most important hill stations.
The winding roads and high passes link its high mountains and valleys. The picturesque valleys of Kullu and Kangra are a blend of colors. Kullu Valley is beautiful - a lush, green valley with the sparkling Beas River running through it and the snowcapped Himalayan peaks forming the background. In marked contrast the stark and barren terrain of Lahaul and Spiti have a stunning lunar and scape like beauty.
Himachal offeres picturesque lush green valleys providing beautiful views of snow capped peaks, fruit laden orchards, terrace fields, gurgling streams, rivers & dense forests.
Its also a dream honeymoon destination.
