Bewitched by the allures of the region, the British established their cantonment here in 1842 and since then the place has been attracting a lot of attention. An interesting thing is that the place is still a British town as there exist many remnants decades after the British left the place. Stroll around the town and you’ll spot a few weathered bungalows, churches, a ceremonial route called mall, etc. The walk will be refreshing and you will see a majority of the people on foot as walking is the best way to discover the place. Locals are more than welcoming, their lovely smile and the simplistic way of life, get one immediately fascinated. Also use the opportunity to visit the local houses and try to connect with them. If you are lucky, you might get the chance to enjoy a home stay. Ethnic, real, and pleasing, nothing beats the homestay, not even the luxury hotels.
There are a couple of interesting things that you can do together as a family. Take some time out of your tour schedule and visit Parwanoo, which is 27 k.m. from the town and best noted for its apple orchards. Also visiting the Kasauli Brewery is a must-do. It is believed to be the oldest functioning brewery in Asia. In addition, you might also like to visit the Christ Church and the Baptist Church. Both are impressive examples of the classic Gothic style of architecture and ideal for spiritually healing the mind and body. The stained glass windows featuring beautiful paintings, simply steals the show.
