Kasauli Travel Guide

Kasauli - The Destination


Kasauli, a serene hill station, a quaint little town, time seems to have stopped still here. Resplendent with spectacular beauty and panoramic views, Kasauli is one of those few destinations developed by the British when it was at the zenith of its rule. This charming hill-station, oozing old-world charisma is covered with tall Deodar, wild flowers, rhododendrons, wild roses, flame of the forest, and flowering Kichnar in summer and is a popular point for bird-watchers. This town has yet not lost its old colonial charm, and this will be evident to you when you watch  the  cobbled  paths , old  fashioned shops , gabled houses

with their charming facades and scores of tiny well maintained little gardens and orchards thronged with chir-pine, Himalayan Oaks and huge horse chestnuts.

This tranquil hill station was developed as a cantonment-sanatorium for over 20 years, after the British had based themselves at Shimla. Besides being an unruffled town, it is also known for its Pasteur Institute, which is involved in producing anti-rabies vaccine against dog-bite.

Located 1,927 meters above sea level and just 70 kms from Chandigarh, legend has it that Kasauli came into existence when Lord Hanuman, on his way to getting the Sanjeevani herb, stepped here for jumping on to the Sanjeevani hill. At Kasauli there is a Hanuman Mandir atop the 300-mt high hillock, called Monkey Point, where Hanuman is supposed to have rested his feet.
