About the Place:
Narkanda is a town and a nagar panchayat in Shimla district in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh. It is at an altitude of 2708 meters on the Hindustan-Tibet Road (NH 22) in Himachal Pradesh, India. It is about 65 km from Shimla and surrounded by the Shivalik Ranges that span a large part of Himachal Pradesh.
It is a skiing resort in winter. It connects Shimla with Rampur and a detour also goes to Thanedhar, the prime apple belt of Himachal Pradesh where Satyananda Stokes started the apple culture. It is home to Apple Jam factory & Apple trading centre.
Good Time to Travel:
The best time to visit Narkanda depends on your reason for visiting. Peak skiing season is usually between January and February, when the slopes are well-covered with snow. If skiing’s not quite your interest, Narkanda’s equally beautiful the rest of the year too.
Autumn – between September and November – is an especially lovely time of the year, when the woods around Narkanda are a riot of gold, orange and red
