Kasauli Tourism

Located on the way from Chandigarh to Shimla, Kasauli is a hilly cantonment town which makes for an ideal peaceful holiday location, especially for a weekend getaway.

Kasauli is a small town in the southwestern part of Himachal in the Solan district and is on the relatively lower edges of Himalayas. Nestled amidst beautiful woody forests of pines (Chir Pine), herbs (Milk Thistle) and cedar trees, Kasauli owes its mystical and serene ambience to the lavish Victorian buildings built by the Britishers who resided here years back. These structures speak volumes of the glorious past of this hill station. Mainly known for its accessibility from Chandigarh and Delhi (it located just 65 km away from Chandigarh), Kasauli is not about particular attractions or activities, but about the serene environment and beautiful properties to stay. Kasauli is also a major attraction for trekkers and campers.

More on Kasauli

The British Cantonment

The hills of Kasauli have been witness to several events of the British empire. The hilly cantonment town set up in 1842 is 1900 metres above sea level and is adorned with several Victorian constructions which add grace to the small town. 

History

The history of Kasauli dates back to the 17th century when some Rajput families of Rewari in Haryana decided to move to the small region called 'Kasul' (named after the freshwater spring in the area), due to the prevalent political conditions. The British, as per habit, when they saw the serene natural environment in all its glory, in the region, bought it from the local Rana and converted it into a garrison troop. Later they realised that the area was too beautiful for a garrison, so they developed a hill station around it, but strictly for British officials only. Post-independence, the town came under the state of Himachal Pradesh. However, it remains a very tourist untouched site, it is unharmed by human interference and continues to maintain its pristine beauty.
