Founded in 1842 by the British, Kasauli the favourite hill getaway of Chandigarh residents. Just 60 km from the city, it takes a short 1.5 hour drive to reach this pocket-sized cantonment town, where you are assured of misty weather round the year. The best thing to do in Kasauli is to enjoy the views and the cold air, but there’s also a bit of sightseeing in the shape of Manki Point and the Chirst Church on Mall Road.
The latter has some beautiful stained glasses depicting Jesus Christ crucified, St. Barnabas and St. Francis. Tourists might also wish to check out the Tibetan Market near the church.
