With amazing scenic beauty come great adventurous opportunities. That sounds taken from somewhere, right? But it's true for Kasauli. One thing that should always be engraved in your mind while you are on a trip to Kasauli, which is you can explore the entire of Kasauli on foot enjoying the virgin beauty of this gorgeous hill station. Otherwise, there is also a plethora of other activities that the hill station has to offer which are appealing to all kinds of tourists in one way or the other. Interested, we know you are, so read on.

  • Trekking and Hiking

    One of the most popular activities that almost everybody takes part in while on a trip to Kasauli is Trekking. Kasauli is endowed with many trekking routes that actually bring out the beauty of some of the most amazing hideouts along with superb panoramic views of the hill station. Some of the most popular trekking routes in Kasauli are Kalka – Kasauli, Gharkhal – Kasauli and Jabli – Kasauli. However, it is pleasant in almost all months of the year; summer season is the most suitable time for trekking in Kasauli.

    A route from
    Jabli to Kasauli is special because you can enjoy vegetable fields while on this route. If you are trekking from Gharkhal then you are bound to stop at the historical Gurudwara which is located in Gharkhal Bazaar. Not to miss is the lip smacking Langar.

    Similarly for hiking you can explore the regions around
    the Mall, especially the Lower Mall which is the best for hiking. There are no operators as such which organise such adventure sports in the town but you can easily get going on your own as the trails are easy.

  • Bird Watching

    Another very interesting activity that one can do while in Kasauli is watching birds from different spots in the town. The most amazing aspect of the whole experience is that you are able to watch these beautiful species of birds in their natural habitat. The question is which spots are the best to spot these different birds! The spotting of exotic species of birds can be enjoyed from lush green forested areas of this beautiful hill station. The most common birds that can be spotted here are Verditer Flycatcher, Red-billed Leiothrix, Red-billed Blue Magpie, Grey Bushchat, Bar-tailed Tree creeper, Striated Prinias, and Jungle Owlet among many other migratory birds.
    The best time for doing this activity is during summers as this is the time when migration of the birds is at its peak.

  • Enjoy the Nature Camp

    If you want to experience the beauty of Mother Nature being in the middle of the action then exploring the
    Sanawar Nature Camp is going to be an interesting one for you. Located at an altitude of 1700 m above sea level, this nature park in Kasauli acts like 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. The park is only 2km away from the Sukhi Jhori Chowk, Kasauli town that is very easily accessible by a taxi or a car. The resort offers its guests luxurious Swiss tents along with organising adventure activities such as trekking, rappelling, valley crossing and rock climbing. The Swiss tents offer modern amenities and facilities along with the multi cuisine restaurant. The restaurant serves superb food which is like an added charm to the place. The fare at this resort is around INR 1500 per night which can also go up depending if you choose for some additional amenities.

  • Enjoy the Fruit Orchids

    Love fruits? Not eating them, but looking at them blushing in the lap of nature. If yes, then exploring the fruit orchards in
    Parwanoo, around 7 km away from Kasauli,is going to be an experience for you. There are many fruit orchards in Kasauli's neighbourhood, Parwanoo which are especially famous for growing peaches and apples. Also, you can buy jars of jellies, jams, marmalades and several other products made out of the fruits grown here. It's an experience in itself. If you don't believe us, come explore it for yourself!

All this is going to take quite some time to try and experience, right? So, are you ready for the vacation yet?
