At around 8 am, our tempo halted at our first destination. We were at the bus station of Kasauli- a Mindblowing hill station which is famous for its peaceful surruounding.
We hadn't thought before that Kasauli would be at a height of 6200 ft. For freshening up, everyone rushed towards common pay&use building. In hurry, everyone had completed their pooping process, but when the time came for washing- no one was able to unlock their teeth as their skin along with whole hand became numb for a while. Then we luckily found one open stall neaby bus stand where we had a great breakfast. Spicy Alloo-Paratha with curd and Achar with Masala-Tea had given a perfect boost to our body in morning.
After having spicey Aloo paratha of small nearby stall, we first saw the Christ England church which is exactly opposite to bus station.( The same church which you have seen in movie Madras Cafe).
Then we headed towards "Monkey Point" which is placed in air force cantonment area. The way between city and monkey point is enough to put a remembering curtains in front of your eyes of the movie “Koi Mil Gaya” as it was too shot there too. Where you can find so many pine trees around the hills, even you couldn't resist yourself to let yourself walking between the trees through small darker alleys. We were too early as monkey point officially opens at around 9:30 am. The peace which I witnessed was just inexpressible. It was like for the very first time in my life, I had inhaled and exhaled the influenced-free pure air to soothe my soul. Murmuring sounds of birds, flat stammering sound of cool wind and unsung songs which were being played by the silence of mounts had caged my soul with magical. If I was allowed, I would have stayed there for a lifetime. Then for using the time, we left away in the surrounding forests. It was really exhilarating experience to see the creation of mother nature. Every tree and every place had their different own story, bringing their mute songs to an invisible dance. Also first time seeing the mountains of snow from a far view in our life was an endless euphoric moment for us.
For having a look of monkey point, we had to climb a small mount. In the entrance, I read the history of that Hanuman Temple where monkey point is placed- during the war of lord RAM with RAVAN when Laxmana was injured and Lord Hanuman went for bringing Sanjivani from Himalaya, his left foot was touched on the peak of that mount in returning and therefore that temple had been made for stealing our hearts through giving us a jaw-dropping views from peak point.
We were at a 6228 ft, when we had a look of stunning surrounding from Monkey point. The greenery which was covering the lakes, scattered homes and beautiful hills had given a thumping wonder to our eyes. You couldn't resist yourself to unglue your eyes from that scene. The cool wind which was colliding on our face had also delivered a different facial expressions on our faces to be turned into frolic one.It was just awesome.
After realizing there was nothing new in the market of Kasauli,At around 11 am we had left for Shimla.
When we reached Dharampur which is 10 km far from Kasauli, my mind had evaporated a heavy regret as I got to know that that was the same place from where we were planning to travel in Train toy to Solan. Because the main breathtaking scenery, highest numbers of tunnels and heartbeat-skipping nature exist between these two stations on the way from Kalka to Shimla. But due to inappropriate timing , we missed it. Needless to say, missing experience of toy train would be greatest regret of journey.
