These pictures explain why Himachal Pradesh is so popular with tourists

For decades, Himachal has been on the chart of explorers and travelers. This connection dates back to centuries when Nepalese emperor Bhimsen Thapa invaded and captured the small hill station in 1806 followed by the Anglo-Nepalese War in 1814, when finally the Britishers took control of the entire area. Including Shimla, The British East India Company colonized other small hill stations like Kasauli and Dalhousie and raised beautiful architectures across the hilly state. However, British colonization had its own shortcomings, but we can’t completely ignore the facts that the hilly state saw a lot of urban development in terms of architecture and connectivity in that ear which we are enjoying today as well.

Beautiful British architectures, forested roads, and narrow-gauge railroad, which is home to a toy train running between Kalka and Shimla, are few to name form the long list of positive developments that look equally beautiful in today’s Himachal that has seen a huge human population bubble in recent time.

Urban as well as rural areas of Himachal are equally powered by tourism to a larger extent. Among many popular tourist destinations, Himachal is one of the hottest selling travel destinations in India, where an economic activity involving billions of rupees take place each month. On top of that, an unfortunate event of Kedarnath has only magnified the activity many folds as the state has seen a significant surge in tourist influx. And the reason behind this increased influx will be a little difficult to put in words as these pictures speak for the beauty of this state of mountains very well.
