As the name of the state implies, Himachal Pradesh is situated very close to the Himalayas. It is blessed with abundant beauty and is a place worth visiting. The climate there is different and is like a mini Switzerland. Solang Valley, Rohtang Pass, The Ridge, Kinanur Kailash, Bhrigu Lake, Pin Valley National Park, Kangra Valley, Dhauladhar, Pandoh Dam, Kareri Lake, Dal Lake, Rewalsar Lake, Khajjiar Lake, Asan Barrage, Triund Hill etc are places of natural beauty which are to be visited if you are planning a trip to Himachal Pradesh.

Thanks for sharing this article.
I have never heard about Choordhar Peak. Also I did not know the meaning of Himachal that is "Him ka anchal". One should also visit Triund hill near Dharmsala.
