As the name suggests, there are monkeys to annoy you a bit, but as long as you ignore them, they don’t intrude. There are quite a few stories behind the place ‘Monkey Point’, which our cabby narrated to us – It is called Monkey Point because your heart’s desires come true after you visit it. I don’t know how true that is, but that’s the highest peak of Kasauli, thus, it’s a sought after spot for panoramic views of the town.
There is a small temple on top of the hill, which is seen from afar. Although we did not visit the temple, we could comprehend the thrill of ascending to the top for beautiful views.
I envy such places for their ‘ignorance’ that remains unperturbed. A town like Kasauli is barely aware of the fast-paced, busy and crowded world that we live in. I am grateful that we still have some glimpses of sleepy quietude to glance at once in a while.
Kasauli is 35 km away from Kalka Station. So it’s an easy reach from Delhi.
