Kasauli's new bents
Kasauli is literally doing nothing. 'Views' have been built at different points, offering views of the Himalayan Peaks in the distance.
A pleasant walk
Follow the upper Mall and wander up to Monkey Point near the Air Force base. The 4-km hike to the Shri Baba Balak Nath Temple on the top is a bit stiff, so take it easy if you are not out of practice. People praying for blessing of their children visit the shrine. Across the forested hills and deep ravines is the sleepy town of Dagshai. On clear day you can catch the sparkle of Sutlej River curving lazily along the plains of Dhauladhar Range and Char Chandani peak.
Bird watching and picnics
The Charm of leisurely picnic in Virgin woodlands is your to enjoy as much as it was for the town's British residents over 50 years ago. Binocs and birds books are essential accomplishments, if you want to stalk humming birds and fly catchers, minuets and magpies .... you might get lucky and spot a deer or hyena.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the pretty hill town of Dagshai has even more undiscovered feel than Kasauli. Even today just a few visitors wend their way across the forested ravines and hills fro Kasauli to Dagshai's picturesque environs. With its superb walk and picnic spots under the canopy of oaks and holly forests , it used to be the top-of -the-pops of the families during the Raj times.
