What We Love About Himachal Pradesh

At the tip of northwestern India stands Himachal Pradesh, a West Himalayan state known to host the Dalai Lama. The name "Himachal Pradesh" translates to Abode of Snow, coined from the Sanskrit language. For the ultimate nature trek through Himachal Pradesh, hike through the trail of Manali. During the colder months, tourists are welcome to ski here as well. If you wish to learn more about the culture and history of the city, there are a number of pagodas and temples like the Jakhu Temple in the city center!
