The state of Himachal Pradesh was formed by the unification of 30 princely states following Independence from the British Rule in 1947.
With population of around 7 million, this traditional state of Himachal Pradesh, which has been influenced minimally by external cultures, is bordered by Jammu & Kashmir to its North.
Known for having one of the highest per-capita income in the country and sometimes referred to the land of Gods, the state has a great variation in climatic conditions owing to its great disparities in elevations between locations.
With over 60% under forest area, the State is also known as the fruit bowl and has a continuous supply for water from the numerous rivers that flows through it.
This has resulted in Hydro power and agriculture becoming a major contributor to the revenue with a large amount being sold to neighbouring states too.
