Very less of Parwanoo’s history is known and that is because it was largely unnoticed for any kind of activity and development until 1973. During the pre-independence times, the British forces laid emphasis on developing different portions of the beautiful Himachal Pradesh but Parwanoo remained untouched by them for a long long time.

However, after Himachal Pradesh formally came into existence on January 25, 1971, the first Chief Minister of Himachal, Shri Y S Parmar got attracted to the immense industrial potential of the town and hence initiated setting up of different industries here. With time since then, the town has become a major industrial town of Himachal Pradesh. There were also many incentives and benefits that were declared, which initiated the settlement of various small and large scale industries in this beautiful hill station.

It is said that Parwanoo derives its name from a village called Ooncha Parwanoo. This township, with time, has been transformed from an offbeat destination to a thriving tourist spot which makes it one of the most famous stopovers for the travellers on a trip to nearby areas.

The town is famous for its fruit based products and plastic items along with several of the pickle shops that also sell meat based pickles. People come here to explore the different beautiful orchards that are spread over the landscape of the town. The society overall is a very close one because of the geographical location and also the population. The industries have gradually made the town a more organised one and that has given an overall commercial touch to this hill station. Tourism is also another aspect which fuels the growth of the place in more than one way.

The place might appear to be small but it is laden with culture and more importantly the spirit of life in the lap of nature at its best. And if you haven’t been to this town, you have missed on a lot as a traveller. So, what are you waiting for? Go, explore the places to visit in Parwanoo and known more about the history and culture.
