Hotels in Himachal - Hotel Info.
Taragarh Palace
 
Taragarh PalaceTaragarh Palace is situated by a forested estate surrounded by tea gardens of the Kangra valley, one of the most scenic and unexplored areas of Himachal Pradesh. Located at a height of 1000 metres, Taragarh Palace is at the foot of the Dhauladhar mountains with splendid views of surrounding snow-capped peaks. Formerly known as Alhilal, the palace was built in the early 1930's as a summer resort. It was acquired by the royal family of Jammu & Kashmir in 1951.

The town of Palampur came into being when Dr. Jameson, Superintendent Botanical Gardens, North-West Frontier Province. introduced the tea bush from Almora in 1849. The bush thrived and so did the town which became a focus of the European tea estate owners. Palampur can serve as the fulcrum for excursions further afield. You can visit the Tibetan monestry at Bir and carry on to Billing, arguably the finest site for hang and para gliding in the country.
