Why travel Palampur?

Palampur is a beautiful and lush green hill station located in Kangra Valley in Himachal Pradesh. It gets its name from pulum meaning ‘abundant water’. Unsurprisingly, the region has innumerable streams and brooks and the water bodies are a huge boon for the tea plantations.

After being established by Dr Jameson, who introduced tea plantations in the hill station, the tea produced in the town of Palampur gained international recognition and is a must buy for tourists along with the Tibetan handicrafts, carpets, and wooden handicrafts made here. And while you’re shopping, do not forget to try out Jhol, a popular local drink made of rice water.

Home to some of the tallest deodar trees in the country, Palampur is the perfect summer getaway offering stunning views of the snow clad Dhauladhar ranges.

Palampur also offers tourists a chance to practice some adventure sports, serving as the starting point for several treks including to Dharamsala and Kangra.
