This destination is a small village an hour before Shimla and 60km from Chandigarh. The highlight of this destination is the rail route. This is one of the most attractive railway lines around the area with the longest tunnel. Theres an abandoned tunnel that is obsolete now, above the station. You could hike to the tunnel on a visit here as well. The village was once used as a mere stop over, but today it is an exciting holiday attraction with mesmerizing views of the valley, pine trees, great climate and more. The hotels here are pocket friendly and so are the restaurants.
