After continuing on the curves of the Dharamshala - Palampur road for a while, we were soon on the highway and the first halt was at Neugal Khad. Popularly known for being a picnic spot, Neugal Khad reminded me of the standard landscape painting we used to draw as children - Backdrop of mountains, cocoon of greenery, some flying birds and a river stream flowing from a far-off hill, just in this case, the stream was covered by a lot of rocks reminding me of adulthood & its hardships.
Neugal Khad is a wide stream of water that flows close to Palampur. Neugal Khad is a popular picnic destination situated about 3 to 4 kms from Palampur. The panoramic view of the Dhauladhar Range from Neugal Khad is commendable. The major attraction apart from the stream is the massive iron bridge. By walking on this bridge you feel the suspension, because the bridge is actually shaking in the air well it's a part of fun. Those interested in photography have the good opportunity to capture the beauty of this colossal bridge and the surrounding landscape. Apart from photography, walking along the pebbled path of Neugal Khad is ideal. We walk through the stream, throw some stone in the water. The sound of the musical stream was awesome. It's like just close your eyes or lie down. Yes mission accomplished first heaven of the day.
It's a small stream surrounded by the Dhauladhar range. Cross over the beautiful Iron bridge over Neugal Khad on your way to the Van and enjoy the view.
Neugal Khad is a beautiful stream in Palampur, Himachal Pradesh. One can spend hours gazing at nature and the beautiful view of the mountains
