Why is palampur a volunteer’s delight

  1. 1. Why is Palampur A Volunteer’s Delight
  2. 2. Introduction Palampur, tea producing and with jaw-dropping landscapes to see, is said to be a marvel amongst volunteers and travellers alike. But what exactly is it that makes Palampur such a volunteer’s delight? I will talk you through the several aspects that make it just that, below.
  3. 3. Palampur-'Tea Capital of Northwest India' Tea, the love and addiction of many, is abundant in what is known as the 'Tea Capital of Northwest India', this is mainly due to the strikingly beautiful aromatic and plentiful tea gardens which were introduced to this region by Dr. Jameson, Superintendent of Botanical Gardens, in the mid 19th century. Kangra tea, named after the valley where Palampur is situated in, is popular and well loved internationally.
  4. 4. Scenic Beauty in the midst of Himalayas Another reason for the charm that is Palampur is its truly stunning natural beauty. Overlooked by the magnificent snow capped Dhauladhar mountains, and bursting with lush greenery and scenic streams which Palampur is named after (“Pulum” referring to the great amount of water), it is no wonder that we strongly recommend this haven of dense forestry, freshwater lakes,and verdant hills to all manners of volunteers.
  5. 5. Hub of Historical Monuments Palampur has copious amounts of breathtaking sites to take in and visit. From the Kangra and Kamlah Garh forts, to the Sultanpur palace, Palampur is home to some of the most beautiful historical sites in India. There also a number of dazzling and tranquil temples to visit in Palampur , these include the Chamunda Devi Temple, Baijnath Temple, Devi Latti Jakhni, and plenty more. History and culture are rife in these parts, and you will certainly not want to miss these when volunteering in Palampur.
  6. 6. Festivals Delight Festivals are the epitome of India, and in Palampur it is no different. There are a few important festivals in Palampur: Sair, a local festival of the district which celebrates the rain season and black month (on this day the Sair deity is worshiped, food is offered, and children play games), Lohri and Maghi, this festival celebrated in mid January is accompanied by blazing bonfires, fanciful folk songs, and dramatic dancing! and finally Palampur Holi Fair which is probably the most famous. During this period a huge fair is held, where many singers visit, enlightening activities are presented, and spectacular representations of the gods are created. You would not like to leave without having experienced at least one!
  7. 7. Indulge in Adventure Activities Trekking and Paragliding are a percentage of the prevalent escapade action choices in Palampur. Actually, Palampur has been named as the best paragliding site on the planet. For trekking, the kangra area is an unquestionable requirement look at spot.
  8. 8. Varied Volunteering Opportunities At Volunteering India we offer a variety of opportunities in this volunteer’s delight.
