Himachal Pradesh, located in the Lower Himalayas Range, is a cultural melting pot as well as a destination for nature lovers and adventure seekers. Himachal Pradesh is a combination of the Sanskrit words “Hima” and “Anchal,” which mean “snow” and “lap”. No surprise the state is situated in the Himalayan foothills.
