Himachal Pradesh

Nestled in the mightiest mountain range, the Himalayas, lies the country's most favourite tourist place - Himachal Pradesh - also known as 'Mini Switzerland'. Blessed with lush green flora and fauna, snow peaked hills, winding roads, high passes and valleys, it is a delight for those seeking adventure. The state demarcated from the plains by the Shivaliks has five mighty rivers flowing through it - the Chenab, Ravi, Sutlej, Beas and Yamuna.

The country's highest dam, Bhakra Nangal, stands on river Sutlej in the Bilaspur district of this state, making it a major source of hydroelectric power.

Himachal Pradesh is also known as the 'Apple state' because the country's first apples(and potatoes) were cultivated here. It also has Asia's largest fruit processing unit located in Parwanoo.
