Kasauli is a picturesque little town in the Solan district of Himachal Pradesh just 77 km south of Shimla.
The closer hill station to the plains, Kasauli offers the charm of quiet walks shaded by chir pine, Oak and horse chestnut trees. It is at its best just after the monsoon, when colorful dahlias cover the hillsides and the clouds seems to float in the town. As an army cantonment, restrictions imposed by the authorities have prevented the old town from being taken over by concrete modern structures. As a result, old-fashioned buildings with gable roofs, charming wooden balconies can be seen here. Kasauli is a hikers paradise and the best way to explore it is on foot.
