Go here for: Hills, Adventure, Weekend Break
Visualize a place with apple orchards at 2204 meters on grassy mountain slopes, misty surroundings with cool breeze blowing, and where time stands still…that is Thanedar for you, in the Shimla district of Himachal Pradesh. Thanedar is an apple paradise, just 421 km from Delhi.
Thanedar is famed as the fruit bowl of Himachal Pradesh because of its apples and they are used in the preparation of some of most appetizing apple wines, apple jams and apple pickles.
It is believed that Samuel Stokes planted the first apple seed here, and that started the legacy of growing apples in India. Apple trees with their greenish branches covered in elegant, delicate blossoms or loaded with flourishing apples, makes Thanedar picturesque and an absolutely soothing getaway where one can enjoy in Nature’s beauty and peace.
Thanedar is an ideal place close to Delhi to simply chill and unwind. One can spend refreshingly lethargic days here!
The best time to visit Thanedar is from March – October. Banjara Camp near Thanedar provides the convenient accommodation.
