People of Himachal Pradesh

Inhabited largely by semi-nomadic tribes like the Gaddis, Gujjars, Kinnars, Lahaulis and Pangwals, the land has been influenced by many cross-cultural streams that developed distinct identities.

Himachalis are a very warm and friendly people and it is easy to strike up friendship with villagers in any roadside hamlet. Tribal folks follow a form of religion in which distinctions of caste and class are less rigid. Women are extremely hardworking, taking care of daily chores in the house as well as toiling in the fields. Most of the people who live in Himachal Pradesh have farmlands and tend to their crops and cattle. The Himachali is down to earth, simple and honest.
