Himachal Pradesh is a state in North India that shares its boundaries with Uttarakhand, Haryana, Jammu and Kashmir, Punjab and the Tibetan Plateau. Most of the state lies in the Western Himalayas, with the exception of its southernmost fringe, which is part of the fertile Northern Plains. The elevation of Himachal Pradesh ranges from about 1121 feet to approximately 7000 feet. Like most mountainous states in the country, it too exhibits a high geographical and climatic variation. There are four major ranges of the Himalayas that run almost parallel to each other through the state, namely Shivalik, Pir Panjal, Dhauladhar and Zanskar.
Tourist can simply set-up a camp and lose themselves in the rejuvenating atmosphere of the state. The campsites are fantastic as they overlook several snow-capped peaks and are located in the midst of beautiful flower filled gardens. The flora and fauna surrounding the mountains are picturesque and refreshes ones heart and soul. Probably Himachal Pradesh is the only place in India where tourist can set up their camp wherever their heart pleases. Nevertheless, there are multiple places in Himachal Pradesh, which are the best sights to camp in India.
