Kasauli Resort - Kasauli

Kasauli Resort - Kasauli

Kasauli is a small hill town full of quaint relics of the British Raj. Situated about 1950 meters above sea level and nestling in the Shivaliks . It is almost midway between the major cities of Chandigarh and Shimla . Directly below Kasauli is the spread of the vast plains of Punjab and Haryana which as darkness falls unroll a gorgeous carpet of twinkling lights. At 3647 meters the snow capped peaks of Choor Chandini powerfully dominates the lower hills and across the undulating ranges, Shimla is also visible.


Kasauli's history can be traced back to the 17th century when it provided refuge and later a home to uprooted Rajput families. Later, in 1842, inspired by the crispy cool climate the British converted it into a cantonment, a status it enjoys even today, thanks to which it remains clean, green and serene.

 

The Kasauli club, one of the oldest institutions of Kasauli, was founded in 1888. The club was meant only for English gentry and a few highly placed Indians. Today the membership includes the elite of India. Another landmark of Kasauli is the Central Research Institute. It was the first of its kind in Asia when it was established in 1905, and today produces the vaccines for yellow fever and rabies.

The first impression of Kasauli is cleanliness, a profusion of flowers and greenery wherever you turn. Above all, a quiet serenity pervades this little resort. Populated mainly by serving and retired army personnel and old time residents, the bungalows are unpretentious and picturesque, with neatly trimmed hedges and wild-flower-dotted winding approach roads. No high rises here, just cottages and climbing roses, hanging pots spilling over with colorful orchids and geraniums , and large trees sporting exuberant foliage and many hued blossoms. Birds with exotic plumage and distinctive calls flit from tree to tree. The upper and lower malls run through kasauli's length and one can enjoy long walks on it.

 

Any mode of locomotion other than walking is frowned upon in Kasauli and there is restriction on the movement of vehicles on the upper and lower malls. During the British times, one could see rickshaws on the mall pulled and pushed by coolies who always ran bare foot , the ringing of the rickshaw bell telling pedestrians to move away. No longer in use, these rickshaws's were one of the most interesting relics of the British era.

 

The highest point in Kasauli, known as Manki point is home to a Hanuman temple. The Manki point is believed to be in the shape of left foot of Lord Hanuman, who is said to have put his foot down on the hill while carrying the mountain bearing sanjivni herb for Laxman, Lord Ram's brother.

 

The climate is salubrious around the year, summer being pleasant and winter mild with occasional snowfall, the monsoons are especially charming when playful clouds swoop down upon you and the mist surrounds you. Leaving all stress behind you can count on the pine-scented air, the misty ambience, the pretty walks and the spectacular views to make your trip to Kasauli a memorable experience. You can plan a trip to Kasauli on weekends since it is easily accessible and have great options for trekking and walking in the Kasauli hills.
