A skier's paradise, the beautiful hill station of Kufri is definitely one of the most popular tourist destinations of Himachal Pradesh.
Once, a part of the Kingdom of Nepal, the beautiful district of Kufri was brought into prominence by the British, who "discovered" this sleepy hamlet in 1819. Its importance in the tourism of Himachal Pradesh was further accentuated thanks to its prominence to Shimla, which was already established as a major tourist attraction of Himachal Pradesh, in addition to being the capital of Himachal Pradesh.
Almost the entirety of tourism in Kufri remains centered around the "kufer" or lake, to which this quaint hill station owes its name. A must visit while on a tour to Kufri, the "kufer" is perhaps the most important tourist attraction of Kufri.
