Kasauli, Himachal

Kasauli in Himachal Pradesh is magnificent with breathtaking beauty and enchanting views. This picturesque hill-station oozes old-world charm in every nook and corner. It is covered with tall Deodar, wild flowers, rhododendrons, wild roses, flame of the forest, and flowering Kichnar. It is a popular hub for bird-watchers. The snowfalls in winters are worth watching. Its main attraction lies in its overall cleanliness, tranquil and unruffled hilly areas and its accessibility.

The best way to explore the town is by foot and the entire town can be toured in an hour. The highest point is Monkey Point, is now with the IAF, commands a panoramic view of the hills, valleys and plains below, with the meandering Sutlej. The two main walks around Kasauli, the Upper and Lower Mall are beautiful. The somewhat steep Upper Mall takes one past an important landmark, the Kasauli Club. Lawrence School at Sanawar, 6 kms away, rich in tradition and a world in itself, also is a major attraction for tourists. The temple of Nahari Devi, which overlooks a waterfall, is also worth a visit. Nothing has so far affected the fall, not the severest drought or driest summer.
