Himachal Pradesh is a state to be explored repetitively as this is one state that satisfies your lust for travelling. There are infinite places to be explored by anyone bitten by the travel bug. But, the best of them and my favourites are lakes of Himachal Pradesh. You will find many trek options to various lakes with camping options as well.
