Kasauli, Himachal Pradesh

Been there recently?

Kasauli is a charming hill station about 6 hours’ drive from Delhi, nestled between the larger cities of Kalka and Shimla. It’s the ideal spot to get away for the weekend. It offers unmatched panoramic views as it is tucked away within the Shivalik Range’s snow-capped peaks. This idyllic, fairy-tale town in Himachal Pradesh exudes an old-world charm that dates back to the time when it was founded as an army cantonment in 1842. According to folklore, Kasauli got its name from a flower called “Kasool” that can be found in the hills. It is the setting for colonial tales, with its wide-ranging colonial bungalows, charming cottages hidden among oak and pine trees, cobbled pathways, serene churches, and little gift shops. Bungalows from the Raj period that have been renovated into inns and hotels allow visitors to experience this historic culture firsthand. Kasauli has an abundant supply of flora and fauna thanks to its lush green mountains, which are home to a wide range of bird and animal species.
