Home to the majestic western Himalayas, Himachal Pradesh ranks among the world's top mountaineering destinations. Tourism in Himachal Pradesh draws adventurers from far and wide to climb, raft, paraglide, hike, and ski their way across the picture-perfect river valleys and snow-covered mountain slopes. Those looking for something less strenuous can tour Himachal Pradesh's charming hill stations, where the holiday atmosphere lasts all year. To travel through this mountainous region the old-fashioned way, consider one of the state's narrow-gauge railways, which include the World Heritage-listed Kalka-Shimla train line.
