What is a trip without some items bought from the place as a memoir of the fun you had? Similarly, a trip to Parwanoo is not complete without you strolling through the cobbled streets of the hill stations looking at several items that can be bought from the place. So take some time out and indulge yourself in this one of a kind and one amongst the most popular things to do in Parwanoo. Here is a peak at what Parwanoo really is famous for:

  • Jams and Marmalades
    Parwanoo is famous for its jams, jellies and marmalades made out of apples, plums, peaches and apricots. The freshly filled jars are generally available at all kinds of shops or can be bought from the orchards directly. Generally a bottle costs you around INR 100 which is cheap, right? Not only in India, the jars of sweet treats are exported in large quantities which says a lot about the quality and hence explains the popularity. Also, try the preservatives that are available really easily.

  • Woollens
    Another very interesting thing to be bought from the hill station is any woollen item. The quality of wool is famous for its Himachal origins and hence is bought by manufacturers and common tourists alike. The weather here compels you to dive in the warmth of these woollens. Try the hand woven sweaters, shawls, stoles and scarves for sure. You will love them and they will love you back!

  • Handicraft
    The small town of Parwanoo is famous for its creativity showcased through different forms of wooden handicraft and other crafty souvenirs made out of straw, brass or even clay that are available at every nook and corner of the town. The setups of the small cottage industries that are still functional have tried to make them more commercialised and efficient through machinery and other amenities which have resulted in a larger scale of production. A similar thing has been done with the woollen industry in the town.

  • Wines
    Because of so many orchards, Parwanoo also offers a wide variety of cheap, locally produced wines. Popular ones that are available are plum wine, apple wine, peach wine, sherry wine and black grape wine. They are easily available at provisional stores located in the town.
  • Fruits and Pickles
    There is a plethora of fruit based products and plastic items that can be bought in Parwanoo. However, Parwanoo is very famous for its numerous pickle shops. The shops there are also known for selling meat based pickles. Most of the famous pickle shops present in the town are located on the northern side of the town along the Shimla Highway.

The products which are produced here locally are not only a true picture of the talent that is well absorbed in every stone of the town but also are a valued source for the economy of the place. You can take a look at Parwanoo packages for more fun filled holiday in the quaint town. So, go ahead and book your train tickets!
