Country Cottage A Tea Garden Resort (Palampur)


I went to palampur for a short holiday and stayed at a place called COUNTRY COTTAGE, a beautiful place in himachal in distt kangra, by road its about 525 kms frm delhi, by train nearest station is pathankot from where a toy train also goes there, we went from shatabdi till jalandhar then we took cabs to reach the place which took us around 5 hrs, the beauty of the place is that it is a tea estate of 85 acres which has only 5 cottages scattered around, every cottage has a different view, the place is covered all around with dhauladhar range of snow covered mountains, the way to the place is also very good as it is away from the crowded market place and is near cantt. area, there’s a small river let passing near this where one can go and relax by putting their feet in ice cold water, nearby places to visit are dharamshala where a days trip can be made visiting mcloedganj also, the other different thing about this place is that it is run by the owners of the tea estate and the food served is cooked at their home kitchen only which is very good, average rates per person can cost around 3-4k per family with meals, their website is countrycottageindia.com
