The capital city of Himachal Pradesh, Shimla is a quaint little hill station nestled in the Shivalik hills. The city derives its name from the name of Goddess Kali, Shyamala. It was discovered by the British for a perfect escape from the scorching heat of the plains. Shimla offers the picturesque set of its treasured natural gifts to its tourists, such as, pine clad hills, beautiful valleys and waterfalls. Shimla has its own colonial charm too.
Great hiking, skiing, some beautiful scenes and a cool environment that’s what Kufri is all about. In the winters Kufri attracts ski-lovers from all across the world.
Manali derived its name from Manavalaya meaning the abode of Manu or “Home of Manu” and here, the temples are treated as pilgrimages. It is an important hill station of northern India with high mountains covered by silent snows and deep boulder strewn gorges. The thick forest full of cool breezes, fields of wild flowers, and apple orchards give it an enchanting beauty.
Gulaba & Rohtang Pass
Situated about 50-km from Manali town, at an altitude of 4,111m on the highway to Keylong, is the Rohtang Pass. There is a beautiful Dasohar Lake left of the Pass. The Pass, which provides the only access to the Lahaul Valley, is open from June to November each year. Snowfall is, however, unpredictable and blizzards can close the Pass even during this period. Here one sees the majesty of the mountains at its height and splendour. A few km away from the pass is the Sonapani glacier and, slightly to the left are the twin peaks of Gaypan-jagged pyramid of rock, snow streaked and snow crowned.
45 kms. from Kullu, here are hot sulphur springs which bubble next to the icy waters of the Parvati river. The place is revered by the both Hindus and Sikhs. The route finally reaches the Pin Parvati Pass, which opens into the Sutlej Valley.
The Valley of Gods is perhaps the most delightful region in the Western Himalayas and is now the district headquarters of the valley but is not the main tourist centre.

It is a Union Territory, administered by the Government of India. The city is very modern and has derived its name from a temple on the slope of the Sivalik hill, Chandi Mandir (deity Chandi, goddess of power), and a fort or “garh” beyond the temple, called Chandigarh.
