Palampur is a green hill station and a municipal council in the Kangra Valley in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, surrounded by tea gardens and pine forests before they merge with the Dhauladhar ranges. Palampur is the tea capital of northwest India but tea is just one aspect that makes Palampur a special interest place. An abundance of water and proximity to the mountains has endowed it with a mild climate. 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.
