Bifurcate the name HIMACHAL.Then it yields Him + Achal
Him = (in Hindi means) ‘Snow’
& Achal = ‘Veil’
Thus, the literal meaning of the state is “Land in the veil of snow”
Certainly, the name implicates a reason!
What is that?
Himachal is a state bestowed with the beauty of the snow-shrouded Himalayan ranges that encapsulate its hill sites.
Sharing its border with china occupied Tibet, the state has a rich aura of Tibetan culture, which could be seen conspicuously in the form of centuries old monasteries.
At the same time, the hill stations of the state closer to Punjab have more influence of Hindu culture.
Having said the above, travelers come in huge numbers all around the year to explore various tourist spots. These spots, of course, offer thosetravelers drinks of adventure, peace, happy moments, and much more to quench their wanderlust thirsts.
Each hill station is special as it is havinga uniqueness factor, which you (as a tourist) are looking for!
I have a small list of the most visited tourist destinations for you.
Let me give you an overview of each enchanting tourist spot.
The hill site had been christened the name after the Goddess ‘Shyamala’ (incarnation of Maa Kali). A temple named Kali Bari has been dedicated to the goddess.
Another interesting historical fact about the town is that Shimla was once the Summer Capital of British ruled India.
Even the colonial rulers loved the place for its pleasant climate throughout the year. The legacy continues,and now tourists adore the hill site for the same prime reason.
Moreover, who wouldn’t fall in love with this beautiful hill station that has so many attractive places to visit?
Jhakoo temple, Sankat Mochan temple, Mall road and more are the traveler’s favorites in the town. Along with these, small less populated hamlets like Mashobra, Chail and Kufri lure the peace seekers to them.

I want to thank our 1st president, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru for allowing the 14th Dalai Lama to settle here in 1959.
Following the cardinal saint, many monks came to Dharamshala back then. The result of that settlement can be seen today.
There are many monasteries and meditation centers in and around the town, where tourists come to know their inner selves.
The other hill site, Dalhousie was precious to British governor Lord Dalhousie(after whom the hill station was named).
There are so many places in Dalhousie that attract tourists. But among them,Khajjiar tops the list.
For that, you need to choose a taxi tour package from our Dharamshala & Dalhousie Packages and explore yourself the charms of both the hill sites.
