Proclaimed by ancient Indian texts as Devbhumi - "Land of the Gods" - and believed to be the earthly home of the mighty Lord Shiva, this beautiful, far-flung region has an almost palpable presence of divinity. Bordered by Tibet on the east, Jammu and Kashmir to the north, and Punjab to the west, the landlocked state is one of great topographical diversity, from vast bleak tracts of rust�-colored high-altitude Trans-Himalayan desert to dense green deodar forests, apple orchards, cultivated terraces and sublime snow capped mountains.
