Parwanoo is a municipal council in Solan district in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. It is an industrial town. It has himachal's biggest wholesale market. It borders Panchkula district of Haryana, and is after the towns of Pinjore and Kalka on the Chandigarh Simla Highway. In fact it is separated by a river bed from the town of Kalka. Pinjore to Parwanoo is almost a continuous urban belt. From Pinjore there is also a road to Baddi. Another nearby industrial town of Himachal.
A prominent horticultural district in Solan, Himachal Pradesh, Parwanoo is located 30 km north of Chandigarh and is known for its beautiful orchards. With apples and peaches grown in plenty, the fields of this small town seem dressed up in peach and red hues. The products made from the fruits contribute greatly to the economy of the town.
There are two ways to ge the perfect view of the town and the countryside and if trekking up the Shivalik hills does not interest you, the cable car run by Timber Trail resort will take you through the same picturesque views. However, while in Parwanoo make sure you visit the army town of Dagshai, one of the oldest British cantonments in the country.
A gateway to places in Himachal Pradesh like Renuka Lake (the largest lake in the state), Pinjore, Kasauli and Paonta Sahib, the town should not be treated as merely a stopover but definitely deserves a visit of its own.
