Himalayas in Himachal’ or one must say Himachal in Himalayas. ‘Him’ in Hindi literally means ice or snow and ‘alaya’ means home, which makes Himalayas ‘The Home of Snow’ and from there Himachal gets its name meaning ‘Land of Snow’.  If the aromatic whiff of fruit trees fill the air in spring in temperate Himachal the rugged and barren landscape in Lahaul and Spiti displays beauty in nudity.

The sounds of 'Dharmam Sharanam gachhami Sangham sharanam gachhami' emenate from imposing Bodh monasteries and reverberate in the vast openness and narrow valleys of the area.

People here are simple, honest and hard working. Fairs and fesitvals attract them and their participation in Dussehra at Kullu, Shivratri at Mandi, Holi at Sujanpur, Phulaich in Kinnaur, Lavi at Rampur and many many others reflects their zest and fervor for a happy and contented life.
