Adventure India : Land of Snow - 2

Himachal Pradesh, the land of snow in north India, is the destination for intrepid adventure seekers. It lies between the states of Punjab and Tibet, with its geography defined by mountains.

Besides the snow-covered mountains, it boasts of the splendid barren beauty of Lahaul-Spiti and Kinnaur and the lush valleys of Kangra and Kullu, known for trekking routes.
