Himachal Tourism promises to its visitors a time of their lives. When they claim to provide the best they actually come through. The sheer natural beauty of Himachal Pradesh in its mountains, hills, and rivers, valleys, lakes, terrains, gardens and forests cannot be found in any other place in India. This beautiful and fresh environment attracts tourists not only from India but from all around the world.

Himachal also has a very rich history and culture. The earliest inhabitants of this state were Dasas, a local tribe. Later on Aryans made this place their home and changed its face. As time passed this state was ruled by some of the greatest Indian rulers like The Mauryas, Kushans and the Guptas. When the Mughals invaded India, the kings of Himachal, entered into a peace treaty with them so that both can live and rule peacefully.
