Kasauli is a walker’s town, given its peaceful vistas and amazing shortcuts.

Lower Mall - Monkey Point

Monkey Point (which local signboards call ‘Manki 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. At the end lies a Hanuman Temple. You can walk through the gently ambling Mall for an hour or two, depending on your pace, past the hotels Alasia and Ros Common, lovely bungalows on the hillside, sweeping valleys, hill views and a Sunrise View Point, to reach the Air Force Station. Beyond which lies Monkey Point. Across the forested hills and ravines is the sleepy town of Dagshai. On a clear day, you can catch views of the snow-clad Dhauladhar Range and, in the north-east, the Choor Chandni Peak. On a clear night, you can see the city lights of Chandigarh.

The Air Force Station gate opens at 9 am. There’s a long list of things, including your mobile phone and camera, that you must leave behind. If keen to see the temple, drive up to the Air Force Station and leave your things in the car. If keen on the walk, simply turn back from the station

Upper Mall

The Upper Mall is a higher and more quiet road than the Lower. It hosts the old Kasauli Club, a few quiet bungalows and lovely views of hills and valleys. There’s a sunset point. Vehicles are not allowed beyond a point just ahead of the club. The walk, Gilbert’s Trail, starts from the Upper Mall. Upper Mall also leads to Monkey Point via the Air Force Station.

Gilbert’s Trail

Go past the Kasauli Club and look out for a board saying ‘Gilbert’s Trail’ on your right. Then walk down the trail and bless the unknown Gilbert, because this is a beautiful walk and you’re likely to get glimpses of birds and other wildlife such as deer. Hummingbirds, flycatchers, minivets, magpies, and many more reign. The wildflowers in monsoon and autumn are gorgeous.

Lower Mall-Kimmughat

There is a great 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. By road, Kimmughat is 31/2 km away.

Mashobra School-Old Kasauli Road

Mashobra School lies some 500m from Kasauli Bazaar. Walk a bit further and turn left off the road. You’ll find yourself following a path to the Old Kasauli Road. Beautiful views and quiet disturbed only by chirping birds are the highlights of this walk.

Kasauli-Sanawar Hill

Hike up first to Sanawar Hill (51/2 km). The lemony chestnut blossoms are a visual feast and their scent clings to the mountain air half way down to Dharampur. Lolling under the trees with a picnic basket is delightful. You can lope your way down to Dharampur (15 km) on the equally picturesque but much quieter back route from Sanawar School. Grab a spicy bite at Gianiji’s famous dhaba, then catch a ride back to Kasauli.

Kasauli is well-connected to nearby towns and railway stations. Do online train ticket booking on ixigo. Also, don't forget to check your PNR status before boarding the train.
