The Perfect Place to Escape (About Kasauli)

Kasauli is a small hill town full of quaint relics of the British Raj. Situated about 1950 meters above sea level and nestling in the Shivaliks . It is almost midway between the major cities of Chandigarh and Shimla . Directly below Kasauli is the spread of the vast plains of Punjab and Haryana which as darkness falls unroll a gorgeous carpet of twinkling lights. At 3647 meters the snow capped peaks of Choor Chandini powerfully dominates the lower hills and across the undulating ranges, Shimla is also visible.

Kasauli's history can be traced back to the 17th century when it provided refuge and later a home to uprooted Rajput families. Later, in 1842, inspired by the crispy cool climate the British converted it into a cantonment, a status it enjoys even today, thanks to which it remains clean, green and serene.

The first impression of Kasauli is cleanliness, a profusion of flowers and greenery wherever you turn. Above all, a quiet serenity pervades this little resort. Populated mainly by serving and retired army personnel and old time residents, the bungalows are unpretentious and picturesque, with neatly trimmed hedges and wild-flower-dotted winding approach roads. No high rises here, just cottages and climbing roses, hanging pots spilling over with colorful orchids and geraniums, and large trees sporting exuberant foliage and many hued blossoms. Birds with exotic plumage and distinctive calls flit from tree to tree. The upper and lower malls run through Kasauli and one can enjoy long walks on it.

The highest point in Kasauli, known as Manki point is home to a Hanuman temple. The Manki point is believed to be in the shape of left foot of Lord Hanuman, who is said to have put his foot down on the hill while carrying the mountain bearing sanjivni herb for Laxman.

Just a 90 minutes drive from Chandigarh, Kasauli is ideally located for spending weekend and holidays to revitalize and recharge the mind and body. It provides a welcome break from the rigors of city living.

Kasauli also enjoys proximity to the hills of Subathu, Dagshai, Solan and Chail and several other picturesque picnic spots. The capital town of Shimla is only 70 km away.

The climate is salubrious around the year, summer being pleasant and winter mild with occasional snowfall, the monsoons are especially charming when playful clouds swoop down upon you and the mist surrounds you. Leaving all stress behind you can count on the pine-scented air, the misty ambience, the pretty walks and the spectacular views to make your trip to Kasauli a memorable experience. You can plan a trip to Kasauli on weekends since it is easily accessible and have great options for trekking and walking in the Kasauli hills.
