Situated in India's northwestern state of Himachal Pradesh and surrounded by snow-clad Himalayan peaks, the pine-forested Kangra Valley is known as the "tea tourism capital of northwestern India", and is home to nearly 6,000 large and medium-size tea estates as well as plenty of resorts offering tea-tourism packages amid spectacular scenery. Some estates also offer factory tours where visitors can see all that goes into the processing of tea. The main town here is the hill station Palampur, with a population of just over 40,000, and the local Kangra tea is known for its unique color and flavor - the black variety with a sweet, lingering aftertaste and the green with a delicate, woody aroma.
