Himachal Pradesh: An Overview

Himachal Pradesh is known for its rich culture and traditions. The state celebrates unique festivals and hosts international fairs that attract tourists from all around the world. Some prominent festivals and fairs include Manali Winter Festival, Lohri, Lavi Fair and Dussehra. The general public gets a day off during these celebrations.

  • The Manali Winter Festival is held in January. It’s an event that attracts people from across the world. During the festival, you can witness the music and folk dance of the locals. It’s the best time to visit Manali as you get to see the snow-covered landscape.

  • The Lohri celebration involves people dancing and singing folk songs, bringing the local community together. During the festival, the locals also organise a fair in Pragpur in the Kangra district.

  • The Lavi fair is an event related to the handloom industry. The locals showcase woollen clothes, shawls, carpets and jewellery. Apart from that, you can also witness the trade between villagers. The trade fair, or the International Lavi Fair, is held in Rampur.

  • Dussehra is the largest fair in Himachal Pradesh. The fair is held in Kullu, and the interesting fact is that it begins when the festival ends in other parts of the country. You can witness cultural activities performed by artists from different countries such as Russia, France, etc.
