Most of the urban dwellers of Delhi/NCR today are longing to escape from our over-polluted cities to some place greener and cleaner. We long for fresh air to fill our lungs and to rejuvenate us. However, most of us only have the weekends at our disposal. We are too busy with work for the rest of the week. When such precious time is at our disposal, we deserve to get the most and the best out of it. We deserve a peaceful weekend getaway from Delhi. For people who are looking to unwind, relax, eat delicious food and be one with nature, Kasauli is the perfect destination. There is surely a reason why the quaint town is a favourite haunt of celebrities. The actor Rahul Bose and the eminent writer, the late Khushwant Singh have homes here.
At a distance of just 293 kilometres from Delhi, Kasauli is one of the closest hill-stations to the capital. You can reach Kasauli by all different modes of transport as per your preference. You can take a flight from Delhi to Chandigarh and then take a taxi from Chandigarh to Kasauli. It will only take you one and a half hour to travel from Chandigarh to Kasauli by taxi. Alternatively you can take a taxi all the way from Delhi to Kasauli. That will take you about 7 hours. You can also take a train from Delhi to Kalka, a journey of 4 hours. From Kalka you can take a taxi to Kasauli, which will take less than an hour.
Where should you stay?
Once in Kasauli, you need to have the perfect retreat where you can relax, unwind and enjoy your stay in comfort. The importance of a good, clean hotel with all the necessary amenities and perfect service can never be overemphasized. We personally recommend Sanawar View Hotel as a lovely boutique hotel nestled in the hills that will give you memories to last a life-time. Surrounded by a forested area, the hotel also has bonfire & BBQ facilities. Oh, and did we mention the guitarist on call?! Now, that’s sure to liven up your evenings!
Unusual Things to Do
Once you step out of the hotel, be sure to check out Gilbert Trail to get a gorgeous series of photographs to add to your Instagram collection. If you are someone who is an animal and wildlife lover, you need to come here with a pair of binoculars to check out the spectacular variety of birds. For those of you who would like to explore their spiritual side even deeper, there is the Bon Monastery nearby to explore. Simply rent a car to go there and experience peace and quiet located within a panoramic and secluded environment! You will be glad that you are in the lap of nature, in Kasauli- the most peaceful weekend getaway that you could desire.
For the high-spirited (pun intended) lovers of alcohol, the Kasauli Brewery is sure to be a point of attraction. The brewery is open daily between 7 am and 7 pm, where you might want to try the ‘Solan No. 1’, a famous single malt whiskey named after the nearby town of Solan.
Apart from these offbeat attraction, there are plenty of other mainstream things to do and see in Kasauli as well. Some of the major options for tourists include the Monkey Point, the Mall Road, the Kasauli Club and the Christ Church. You will surely be spoiled for choice on things to do.
So, now you know why this pretty little hill town is the perfect peaceful weekend getaway from Delhi.
