Along the National Highway 22, as you cross the State border from Haryana into Himachal, Parwanoo (470 m) welcomes you. A couple of decades ago, this was a sleepy little village and today, it is a major industrial town. For the tourist, Parwanoo is a convenient base station to see and visit a number of nearby areas.

ACCESS The nearest broad gauge railhead is at Kalka, only 1.5 km away and nearest airport is at Chandigarh, 32 km. Taxis and buses are available at both places.

CLIMATE In winter, the temperature can get quite low when heavy woolens are required. It is pleasantly warm in summer and cottons are recommended.


PINJORE (10 km) : Parwanoo is an excellent base to visit the famous Mughal style garden at Pinjore.

DAGSHAI (28 km) : A one time British cantonment this small town is surrounded by pine trees. It has an old church.

KASAULI (37 km) : A charming hill station with lots of old world charms.

SABATHU (45 km) : Still a cantonment, it also has the remains of a Gorkha fort.


Parwanoo lies in the low rolling Shiwalik hills and aptly the HPTDC hotel at Parwanoo is called the The Shiwalik. Just near to the highway, it is one of the first buildings in town and is an excellent introduction to Himachal's Hospitality.
