In Himachal Pradesh, the tourism industry is thriving, with over 74 lakh tourists visiting the state by May of this year. This marks a 3.5% increase compared to last year. Solan district has emerged as the top destination, surpassing even the famous hill station of Shimla, the capital of Himachal. Popular destinations such as Kasauli and Chail are experiencing a surge in popularity, while lesser-known spots like Reva Waterfall are drawing travellers. Among the factors that have led to the increase in numbers are the expansion of homestay options and improved accessibility in erstwhile remote areas.
