Located on the road from Chandigarh to Shimla in the Solan district, Kasauli is a hilly cantonment town that makes for an ideal peaceful holiday location, especially for a weekend getaway. Kasauli is a cantonment town dotted with lavish Victorian buildings built by the Britishers who resided here years back. The quaint village has nature trails and beautiful viewpoints.
Popular attractions here include Christ Church, Central Research Institute, Monkey Temple, and Sunset Point.

The birthplace of Ruskin Bond, Kasauli is visited by writers looking for inspiration. Kasauli is also known for the Toy Train Ride and Timber Trail that gives you a bird's eye view of the hill station.
