We did a short stint in a small village, Kuthar, on the Kasauli hills (Set up a pretty fancy school there actually). The view from the verandah was great. Kuthar has a palace, and a raja a well. Vj took some lovely photos :
I have already narrated my affinity with Kasauli in my earlier blog titled – Kasauli – the quietest hill station, as my first blog on 20th April, 2007. Therein I had written that views from Kasauli during monsoons is something ethereal. I had visited Kasauli again during last week of June, 2007 for some personal work and took the opportunity to capture a few alluring moments in my digital camera. Hotels in Kasauli were more or less the same in number. For those who have not read my earlier blog, Kasauli is situated in District Solan in Himachal Pradesh and is a pristine hill station. It is at an average height of 6000 odd feet and about 325 Kms. from Delhi by road. The other means of reaching are detailed in my earlier blog referred to herein above.
The most distinctive feature of Kasauli is that being the first hill ranges after the plains of Haryana & Punjab if offers unbridled view of the plains on one side as against the Shimla hills & beyond on other side. Hills adopt different moods during different seasons of the year, I invite you to soak in the spirit of the mountains during monsoons.
Relaxed Memorable Moments
I planned holiday with my son and husband to small uncrowded hill station, that should be near to Delhi and mostly approachable by train due to time constraint. We took Satabdi till Kalka and then took a one hour taxi ride to reach resort.
We booked resort holiday package with meals. Although we could not find much in kasauli town itself but stay at resort were relaxing and good. Room was spacious with proper ventilation.
My son enjoyed playing at lawn area of resort with other kids staying at resort. Food was excellent with music. Package includes buffet breakfast and dinner with lot of varieties. We also enjoyed discounted use of jacuzzi, sauna and massage, although we have taken more time than paid.
We only suggest more speedy services for food etc.
