Green & Serene

After 2 days on non stop treks in McLeodganj and Triund, we took our bikes for a stroll near the foothills of Dhauladhar and were completely mesmerised by the beauty of Palampur. This lovely little town will make you feel jealous of your concrete jungle in big cities. It was April and the trees had a lovely foliage of Orange, Green and brown. Mud houses that looked so peaceful decorated both sides of the road and made a really pleasant drive to Bir for us. The next time, I'm planning a trip specifically to Palampur :)

Nice Place for Paragliding

I enjoyed a lot my holidays in Lush Green tea garden, snow covered mountain. It's a great place for Paragliding. We stayed in a tent and enjoyed Maggie. Some local people also with us and enjoyed a lot on the folk songs of Himachal. Here I experienced how whether change within a short period of time. It's a good place for freelancer.

I am heading to Palampur

Palampur Overview

The hill town of Palampur in Kangra Valley captivates you with its beautiful landscapes, pine and deodar forests and sparkling streams. Unlike any other popular hill station in Himachal Pradesh, it has a character of its own, not overtly commercialised by tourism. Situated at an altitude of 1220 m above sea level, Palampur is a retreat for nature lovers and art enthusiasts. Palampur derives its name from the Himachali word pulum or abundance of water. The town came into being in the 19th century when the British decided to plant tea bushes in the gentle slopes. Today, Palampur is known as the Tea County of Himachal and exports the famous Kangra Valley Tea under various brands. Adding to the beauty of this small town are paddy fields, colonial bungalows and temples wrapped in history, as well as pretty hamlets set against the majestic snow-capped peaks of Dhauladhar Mountains.

Sightseeing Highlights:

The 13th century Baijnath Temple is dedicated to Lord Shiva and is one of the most important architectural monuments in Kangra Valley. One of the twelve Jyotirlingams, Baijnath Temple is visited by thousands of pilgrims during Shivratri.
