Al-Hilal, situated at a distance of 12 km from the city of Palampur, is a well known tourist destination. The literal meaning of Al-Hilal is the land of the Crescent Moon. From Al-Hilal, explorers are furnished with a surrounding perspective of the Dhauladhar ranges. It is as much a cultural heritage as it is a natural enigma.
This site acted as the military fortress of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. Tourists can use the guest house named Taragarh fort, which spreads over a range of 15 acres in proximity to Al-Hilal.
