small hill-station seems to live in a time warp that belongs to the 19th
century. The narrow roads of Kasauli (1951 m) slither up and down the
hillside and offer some magnificent vistas. Directly below is the spread
of vast plains of Punjab and Haryana which as dakness falls, unroll a
gorgeous carpet of twinkling lights. At 3647 m, the peak of Choor
Chandni (also called the Choordhar) powerfully dominates the lower hills
and across the undulating ranges, Shimla is visible.
The upper and lower malls run through Kasauli's length and one can enjoy
long walks on it. A mixed forest of pine, oak and huge horse-chestnut
encircles the town. Its colonial ambience is reinforced by a stretch of
cobbled road, quaint shops, gabled houses with charming facades and
scores of neat little gardens and orchards.
In winter, the temperature gets guite low and heavy woollens are
required. In summer, the climate is mild and light woollens / cottons
