Lakes in Himachal Pradesh
Himachal Pradesh is located at the core of the Himalayan region. It is one of the most beautiful states in northern India. Himachal Pradesh is not only known for its icy mountains, dense foliage, and adventure sports but also for its serene and beautiful lakes. Himachal Pradesh has dozens of large and small lakes spread over the state.
Himachal Pradesh has a geographical area of 56,000 sq. km. of which one percent is covered by lakes. Some lakes are natural bequests that may well date back millions of years to the time when the region was a vast island sea. Today, they are fed by streams of pure snow-melt or by ground-water springs. Practically without exception, they are held sacred – or at the very least, have fascinating legends merging with their crystal clear waters.
