The Land of the Gods
Are you an ‘Orophile’? In simpler terms, does your heart belong to the mountains? A view of the Himalayan range in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh can surely satiate your soul.When we dive into its nomenclature we see that Hima stands for ‘snow’ and Acal means ‘slopes’ in Sanskrit, while Pradesh denotes ‘state’.
Himachal Pradesh has been versatile as a tourist spot owing to its rich culture, heritage, food, flora, and fauna. Over the years, the inclination towards fairs, fests, and adventure has escalated among the youth. Dharamshala, Kullu, Manali, and Shimla pop up in our minds as soon as we think about a ‘snow-clad’ holiday.
Home to the Dalai Lama himself, Himachal Pradesh has a ‘tibetan’ vibe with Buddhist monasteries and temples scattered in almost every nook and corner. Also referred to as Dev Bhoomi or ‘The Land of Gods’, Himachal truly looks like an abode meant for the ‘godlike’.
The perennial rivers stream through the alluring valleys, surrounded by humongous Pine trees and Alpine meadows. The ecosystem and scenic beauty of this heavenly land walks you through the purest enchantments offered by nature.
The uncountable mountain passes, peaks, and valleys single-handedly attract people from all corners of the world. The Triund Hill, Jalori Pass, Friendship Peak, Keylong, Churdhar Peak, and Kunzum Pass are a few among the abounding ‘elevated’ wonders of Himachal Pradesh.
Cycling through the mountains, trekking in the snowy valleys, or camping beside the tranquil rivers, Himachal Pradesh offers an opportunity to get in touch with nature at each step.
Leisure in Himachal Pradesh branches into countless options, ranging from trekking, trout fishing, hiking, quad biking, skiing, go karting, horse riding, and zip lining.
While some experiences offer you an adrenaline rush, there’s a lot in stock for those who look for calmer versions of leisure. Yak rides, hot air ballooning, and cable-trolley rides are equally awe-inspiring for those who love to ‘carpe diem’ placidly.
Flora and Fauna
Chrysanthemums, roses, tulips, and marigolds wreath patches of land and intensify the alluring vibe of each corner. The ‘fruit bowl of the country’, Himachal Pradesh has gained worldwide fame for its Apples and continues to export the freshest produce to other parts of the nation. Its state animal, the Snow Leopard, signifies extraordinary beauty and the essence of being ‘rare’.
Putting forth the best of nature, leisure and culture, Himachal Pradesh is the best pick for your next solo getaway, workation, or family trip. Explore it through your own eyes to get the most out of this ‘heaven on earth’.
