Hills of the Himachal…some glimpses…:)

Himachal Pradesh………a true heaven in the Himalayas……..so they say…

And I have also explored some parts of this true heavenly state in the northern part of India, as there are numerous favourite tourist destinations in this part of the Himalayas with their gorgeous locales and breathtaking sights and sounds……

This post will be only some shots of these areas I have covered, while a detailed post will follow in the future……..:)

‘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’.

The Himalayas affect the climate of Himachal as well. Huge variations in the elevations of mountains (from 450m to 6500m) cause big differences in climatic conditions.

Different climatic conditions according to the elevations are:

450m-950m – Hot & Sub-Humid Tropical
900m-1800m – Warm
1900m-2400m – Cool
2400m-4800m & Above – Cold Alpine & Glacial

The Himalayas, fulfilling its promise, are a reservoir of immense amount of ‘Him’ in the forms of Ice, Fresh and Underground Water. And the seeping of this moisture originates a number of rivers, which flows through the land of Himachal, namely Sutlej, Beas, Ravi, Chenab and Yamuna. It is also the reason of dozens of lakes that covered Himachal Pradesh.

From the underground waters to the peak of mountains, Himalayas has blessed Himachal with great natural riches. In between, the Passes, the Valleys and the Hot Springs are also the gifts of Himalaya to Himachal.

And here’s some of the glimpses from my smartphone……:)
