You can see the entire Palampur and Baijnath as well from here with the help of a binocular. And I would suugest you to spend a night there if you are a epic sunset or sunrise lover. For stay, you have 2 options:

1) spend a night in a Khud ( a small built house )

2) stay in Gadi's ( localities ) house. Fyi: there is no village or shop there. Just one or two houses that too can be vacant during winters.

Himachal Pradesh is only the state where after every 100 kms, the language, costume, food, tradition, landscape and even the architecture changes. And everywhere you will get ample area for vehicle parking, Fresh seasonal organic vegetables and fruits, Natural Drinking Water. In himachal, you will see numerous streams flowing from the mountains to the plains from Palampur. The combination of greenery and water; the confluence of the plains and the hills shows the scenery contrast and a distinctive look to the Palampur. Umm! The last but not least Dhauladhar mountain range which stands in the backdrop of this beautiful town " PALAMPUR ".
