Himachal Pradesh Tourist Attractions

Often referred to as the "Magical Showcase of Nature's Splendor", Himachal Pradesh is a state with abundant green grassland, wide valleys set against imposing snow-clad mountains, crystal clear lakes, flowing rivers, spurting streams, fruit laden groves and soft terraces of corn and tea. The region of Himachal Pradesh was also called 'Deva Bhoomi ' (the land of the gods). Till October 1966, Himachal Pradesh comprised only of six hill districts of Mahasu, Mandi, Chamba, Sirmaur, Bilaspur and Kinnaur. In November 1966, it was expanded with the inclusion of some of the hilly towns of Punjab like Shimla, Kangra, Kullu, Lahaul, Spiti, Nalagarh tehsil of Ambala district, and areas of Hoshiarpur and Gurdaspur districts. On 25th January, 1971, Himachal Pradesh was made a full-fledged State, with Shimla as its capital. It is bordered by Jammu and Kashmir on north, Punjab on west and south-west, Haryana on south, Uttarakhand on south -east and by Tibet on the east.  It spans an area of 55,673 km� and population over 6,077,300. Being the land of eternal snow peaks, Himachal Pradesh takes in the transition zone from the plains to the high Himalayas and in the trans-Himalayan region of Lahaul and Spiti actually crosses that mighty barrier to the Tibetan Plateau.
