I had a fabulous one week in Palampur. The details will start pouring in. But let me start with their mere bus stand and a lowly puddle!
It happens only in Himachal Pradesh I think! I had a gala time. I stayed at the Holiday Home Hotel a lovely home based accommodation. And the full disclosure is that I was an ordinary paying guest and was not invited by the property. If you are a solo women traveler you would find it safe and comfortable. But this will be a full post later.
I managed to sneak about a few places. Also I was hosted on my first day by a local family and you find such hospitality only in places like Palampur. I was hosted because I was a friend’s friend. And that common friend I have only interacted online!
I reached home today so the posts will follow in a while.
But tell me have you ever seen a more beautiful puddle ever?

No I have never seen a more beautiful puddle. Your timing there was just perfect.
The best within the image is image within puddle. Isn’t it?
the most beautiful puddle.
the most beautiful puddle
No, can’t say I have seen such a beautiful pothole ever 🙂 Great capture, Mridula
Incredible image of the snow capped peaks in the puddle. Awaiting more details of Palampur trip !
This has to be the most amazing puddle mirroring divine peaks. There is something about snow clad peaks. They make me feel divine and bow in deep reverence! Waiting for the nest post.
I saw this from twitter first and was delighted by the perspective 🙂 Amazing take.
Welcome back. Quite a bid hole in the ground. Thank god, its big enough for the drivers to see.
Nice puddle there. 🙂
That is the best looking puddle.
Shining like Silver..
No, I have never seen a more beautiful puddle ever!!
What an imagination Mridula!
Hey Mridula,You really got the patience to click such a superb shot.
See how beautiful a even a puddle can become if the surrounding landscape is beautiful!
You have such a fabulous imagination !!You have written a complete post about a puddle which goes un-noticed everyday in our lives!
Keep in touch!
Truly, what a wonderful capture you’ve got here. Even a puddle looking so beautiful with the reflection of the ice-capped mountains in the backdrop. Awesome composition. Palampur is a very nice place, indeed, that too, in the winters.
Thanks for sharing this with us.
As they say beauty lies in the eyes of beholder… .
what a beautiful capture, Mridula! am heading out to Himachal too this week, but to the tried and tested places, nothing offbeat…
What a wonderful photo! I hope next time you get to visit Barot and Chota Bhangal. Soon (now that elections are over in Himachal) we will have another road opening up, the shortest route to reach Chamba from Palampur-Baijnath. Just a matter of 40 Kilometers to reach Chamba (Holi Village).
Typical of Indian bus stands……
