India - Himachal Pradesh (Chapter)
This is the Himachal Pradesh chapter from Lonely Planet’s India guidebook.
Himachal is an outdoor adventure playground: from trekking and climbing to rafting and paragliding to skiing. Traditional Himachali culture flourishes amid Himalayan landscapes; hill stations appeal with colonial-era charm, while groovy backpacker magnets lure with their blissed-out vibe and mountain trails.
