Looking for a place you can head to, to beat the blazing heat of Delhi? We found the ultimate destination for you. Hidden in the lap of nature, Kasauli is a small hill station in Himachal Pradesh, only 5 hours away from Delhi. This easy to approach hill station is an ideal spot to pack your bags and drive to, to spend some relaxing time amidst nature, with your friends or family, away from the hustle and bustle of city life!
Read on and know how you can explore this small hill station, at its best, in just a day.
When in the hills of Kasauli, you are woken up by the sound of chirping birds and fly from one oak tree to another. This is when you must get out of your bed and embark on the journey!
The main travel spots of Kasauli lie in between the upper and lower mall road, that covers just a few kilometres. This is great as you can explore the place on foot and enjoy the serenity of nature as you do so. (Just don’t forget to slip into a pair of good, comfortable shoes!)
If you ask for a travel recommendation from a local, when at the lower mall road, ‘Meditation Point’ will come as a common suggestion. Go here and you will know why! The Meditation Point offers a mesmerizing view of Chandigarh city. Witness the blinking city lights, the colours of dawn; see the sky change its colour from blue to pink to orange and soak in the sun when it starts to shine bright over your head; a perfect start to the day!
At the mall road, you will find a lane of shops where you can shop for decor items, traditional outfits, souvenirs and a lot more.
Enjoy the finger licking good Tibetan food that’s served fresh and warm at the restaurants and cafes at the mall road. Momos and Thukpa are two food items you must try. They are so good, you will surely ask for another serving! If you are a street food lover, the famous Band Samosa and Himachali Palao will surely get you drooling.
Besides food, Kasauli is also known for its locally produced liquor. Take home the most flavoursome wine, beer and whiskey you ever tasted.
Towards the upper mall road is the Sunset Point. It will take you 20 minutes to comfortably to reach here. Observe nature and its tranquility. This route will take you back to the colonial era. Believe us, the view at the end of this road will be breathtaking!
Another activity for an adventure lover that the place has to offer is the Timber Trail, a cable car ride that offers a bird eyes view of the hills and valleys, the pine and oak trees from up above.
