Towards the northern region of India lies Himachal Pradesh, sitting in the lap of Himalayan mountain range. Popularly known as the Devbhumi – ‘Land of the gods’, Himachal Pradesh is a beautiful hill state in India. The state is surrounded by the Tibetan plateau to the east, Jammu and Kashmir to the north and Punjab to its west. However, the state stands apart from its neighbors’ in terms of its sheer topographic diversity and breathtaking pristine natural beauty. From vast tracts of high-altitude Trans-Himalayan desert to dense green deodar forests, from apple orchards to cultivated terraces, from snow capped high Himalayan mountain ranges to snow fed lakes and gushing rivers.
A soothing panorama surrounds you and leaves you with ever remaining memories of a wonderful vacation spend amidst the woods in Himachal.
The best time to go to Himachal depends on what you would like to do! The flavor of spring, the activity packed summer, the romantic saga of the rains, or the crisp chill of winter are all present in Himachal Pradesh.
In spring, during March and April, the chilly cold winter is a retreat and the skies open up to bright blue with temperatures in a very pleasant range of 20 degrees during the day time with a drop at night. Tourists have not yet descended here, so there is peace and tranquility in the region.
Summers, during May and June there is onslaught of tourists. It is the peak season in Himachal but the hordes of tourists especially in the popular destinations like Shimla and Manali are sometimes a put off if you are looking for serenity. The Sipi fair is held in Shimla in May sometime and if you happen to be there, attend it.
The months after the monsoons (July to August) are also a good time to be in Himachal Pradesh. September to November are very good months with tourist crowd considerably low and day temperatures being pleasant in mid 20 centigrade’s. This is also a time for festivals and events especially in Kullu where Dussehra is celebrated in a very big way in October.
The winter months between November and February see the slopes of Himachal Pradesh covered in a thick blanket of snow. Skiing at Kufri is very popular and people come from the plains to try their hand at this sport. Shimla is also quite a popular destination in the winters as the snow is a draw for the tourists. The temperatures are freezing at the height of winter that is in January and February, but tourists still venture forth to see the powdery white snow that covers the region.
If you happen to be visiting in the winter months, the Winter Carnival at Manali and the celebration of the Tibetan New Year at McLeodGanj in February are good events to attend.
