Amidst pine forest and majestic hills, Kasauli is a quaint hill station in Himachal Pradesh. It is famous for its green-housed church, Victorian-era houses, beautiful trails and peaceful surroundings. It is said that this little town was founded by a British family in 1842 probably to find an escape to a quieter place away from the hustle and bustle of the main city. Even after so many years, it retains its calmness and tranquility.

After days of contemplation, I and my four other friends finally decided Kasauli as our next travel spot. It is about 300 km from Delhi having the best connectivity possible and most importantly, was the perfect place for a short yet rejuvenating trip.
As there is no direct mode of conveyance to Kasauli, we decided to take a train to Chandigarh. From Chandigarh, we boarded a bus to Dharampur, and from Dharampur, we boarded yet another bus to Kasauli. It’s a bit longer route but totally worth it. Throughout the entire journey, an array of picturesque views will accompany you and I swear, you wouldn’t be able to take your eyes off from them.
