Done with exploring what Parwanoo has to offer? Then it is time to get to know its surroundings better. And when we talk about the places near Parwanoo, we should tell you that they are no less mesmerizing! Excited, then read on.

  • Kasauli
    Located around 28 km away from Parwanoo, Kasauli is a small hill station outside of Shimla which is known for its tranquillity and calmness. Snow clad mountains and dense forests will accompany you while trekking in unexplored territories. Lined with dense oak, pine and chestnut trees, this quiet and unexplored hill station calls for a relaxed and enjoyable vacation amidst natural beauty. The place has some interesting outdoor trails, which are easy and safe. The trails allow you to experience the picturesque beauty at its best. Some of the major local attractions include Christ Church, Sunset Point and Monkey Point. Come and discover all this and more for yourself! The place, though secluded, offers limited and interesting shopping choices for the shopaholics at the Mall Road. And the drive is also not that long, it will just take you around 45 minutes to reach Kasauli from Parwanoo.

  • Sanawar
    Around 25 km away from the town of Parwanoo, Sanawar is best known for the major tourist attraction of the region, Lawrence School at Sanawar. In 1853, the British Empire awarded the school the King's Colours, an honour that is given to only six schools the world over. In the first week of October every year, the students of Sanawar celebrate their Founder's Day. This is undoubtedly the only time when the relatively quiet atmosphere is full of cheers of fun and frolic. You can come to the school campus and can explore the mesmerising gardens with pine, deodar and other coniferous trees in the campus. You can also stroll around in the campus and be spellbound by the beautiful colonial buildings that are charming as ever. Another interesting thing is the chapel located in the campus which is famous among tourists and locals alike. You will need around 25 minutes to reach the place.

  • Dagshai
    Just 26 km from Parwanoo, Dagshai was once a favourite among British families. However, it is much less frequented by tourists today. The seemingly untouched beauty of the place is further accentuated when you just lazily walk around the paths and rest under the natural canopy of oaks and holly forests. Embark on this 28 minute drive from Parwanoo if you are comfortable with driving around the hills. The place grows on you.

    If you are really driving down to the places around Parwanoo, always take care of your safety on the roads. This is not to scare you but the roads do get slippery at times which can be really risky. Drive within the speed limit, Always!

  • Chandigarh
    Located around 30 km away from Parwanoo, Chandigarh is known internationally for its urban-style planning systems and architecture. This calm and quiet city on the foothills of Shivalik boasts of a plethora of geometrically landscaped gardens and parks. Of particular interest is the Rock Garden, which boasts sculptures made out of scrap and waste materials. Chandigarh is known for its proximity to major tourist hill stations in Himachal Pradesh like Shimla, Manali, Dharamsala. Deriving its name from Goddess Chandi and a temple in her dedication, the city is recognised for its progressive architecture, designed by the French architect Le Corbusier and his team. A largely commercial city, Chandigarh is increasingly being viewed as India's retirement capital, with independent bungalows and a leisurely pace of life. The drive from Parwanoo to reach this beautiful city will take you around 40 minutes.

Phew! These places are mind blowing wonders in small packages, aren’t they?
