Here are the top 10 reasons why we love Kasauli. All the more alluring during winters, this quiet town is just perfect for peace and rejuvenation. Strolling down quiet, country lanes lined with aged chestnut trees and with its quietude it helps you rid your mind of clutter and body of its lassitude.

1. Christ Church

The Christ Church is, according to its priest, the oldest in Himachal, having been built in 1853. A short, charming walk takes you to a cemetery maintained by the church. The tombstones date back to the 1850s.

2. Lower Mall-Monkey Point

Monkey Point lies 4 km from the bus stand, at the very end of the Lower Mall. This is perhaps the most “done” walk in Kasauli because the Lower Mall is a relatively easy road to walk. On a clear day, you can catch views of the snow-clad Dhauladhar Range.

3. Upper Mall

The Upper Mall is a higher and more quiet road than the Lower Mall. It hosts the old Kasauli Club, a few quiet bungalows and lovely views of hills and valleys.

4. Gilbert’s Trail

Go past the Kasauli Club and look out for a board saying Gilbert’s Trail on your right. This beautiful walk offers glimpses of birds and other wildlife such as deer.

5. Lower Mall--Kimmughat

There is a nice shortcut trail down to Kimmughat from the Lower Mall, only 1 km long. The path winds past the annexe of Hotel Ros Common to finally emerge on the Lower Mall.

6. Kasauli-Sanawar Hill

The Kasauli-Sanawar trekking route is a delight for trekkers as the route is the one of the most scenic and picturesque trails across Kasauli.

7. Timber Trail

Even though it is located in Parwanoo, Timber Trail is one of the most favourite destinations for people visiting Kasuali. The trail is connected by a cable car which makes this trail all the more popular as a holiday stopover. What you can enjoy from the cable car is the view of the the Kaushalya River.

8. What to Eat

Eating options in Kasauli are largely limited to hotel restaurants here. However, there are a number of small eateries on the Mall Road where you can enjoy bun-samosa, tea and perhaps the best momos you have ever tasted.

9. Nature Camp at Sanawar

If you want to experience the scenic beauty of Kasauli at its best, then exploring the Sanawar Nature Camp would be an interesting idea. Situated at an altitude of 1700 m above sea level, this nature park in Kasauli is an adventure resort situated in a reserve forest. It has the hills of Shimla on one side and the Banasar Forest on the other side.

10. Shopping in Kasauli

A trip to Kasauli is not complete without stocking your bags with snuggly woolens, jams, jellies and marmalades made out of apples, plums, peaches and apricots and locally produced wines. However, don’t forget to bargain here!

Additionally, you could also try to include Shimla in your tour of Kasauli. The distance is about 72 km with an easy availability of Shimala to Kasauli cabs and vice-versa.
