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 gorgeous hill station is a big treat in a small package and when we say that, we are not even exaggerating! The place has something for everyone. Be it some of the most beautiful trails in the country or the old churches and gurdwaras. Well, two lines about it all is not fair to the destination so read on.

  • Timber Trail

    The beauty of the little town of Parwanoo is not only limited to the interiors of few of ever growing industrialisation but it has some of the amazing attractions when it comes to what Mother Nature has to offer. One such is the Timber Trail which is coming up to be one of the major tourist attractions in this region. Located in Parwanoo, the trail is referred to as the valley which lies between the two hills of the Shivalik range. The trail is connected by a cable car which makes this trail all the popular as a holiday stopover. What you can enjoy from the cable car is the view of the Kaushalya River. The cable car which charges around INR 150 per person has the capacity to hold 10-12 people in one go. It takes the tourists at a height of around 5000 feet above sea level which is amazing. The cable car picks travellers from Timber Trail Resort and drops them to the Timber Hill Heights. There are stay options on the hills at both the sides of the trail of similar names which can be a good option if you want to take some time to swoop in everything that the valley has to offer.

  • Dagshai Church (Dagshai)

    Located in the old British fostered Dagshai which is 28 km away from the town of Parwanoo, this church is as old as the town itself. The church is known for its colonial architecture and hence attracts a lot of visitors who are interested in the old world wonders and others alike. The area is surrounded by thick pine and oak trees that add another charm to the place. Enjoy the daily services here. If not that, just sit in the church and connect with your spiritual side. Trust me, you get very less chances to do so.

  • Fruit Orchards

    If you are a fruit lover and want to know how are they grown then this is the place that is going to tempt you the most when in Parwanoo. The beautiful orchards are spread all across this blend of a hill station and an industrial town. You can enjoy yourself being in the middle of heavy peach and apple trees and unwind yourself for hours. Get updated on your knowledge about the different varieties of apples, peaches and other kinds of berries by the people working there. You can buy boxes of these fruits at very affordable prices along with jars of jellies, jams and marmalades made out of these. Don’t forget to buy a jar or two for the hands waiting for you at home.

  • Mughal Gardens (Pinjore)

    The beautiful gardens located in Pinjore which is around 10km away from Parwanoo are treat to any nature lover. It is said that the garden was designed on the same pattern that was used by  the classic Charbagh garden in Kashmir. Nawab Fidai Khan, who designed the garden could not stay at the location for long and hence the reign fell under the hands of Raja of Sirmaur. He ultimately restored the grandeur and glory of the garden. The garden never is missed by anyone travelling to Parwanoo. Who would want to miss a treat like this to eyes when it is just 10km away from your vacation spot. The garden is well restored after it was handed to the Haryana Government in 1966.

Another attraction that can be explored is the remains of the Gurkha Fort in Subathu which is around 16 km away from the town of Parwanoo. Known for its architecture and more importantly its grandeur, you should not miss it when in Parwanoo.

Phew! Who could have imagined such a small place had so many surprises in store! So, what are you waiting for? Oh, you are not! Ok then keep on packing, sorry I disturbed.
