Monkey Point - Review

Located at the highest point of the hill, it is just 4 kilometers from the Kasauli Bus Stand. Legend has it that when Lord Hanuman was flying over with the death defying herb Sanjeevani Booti, he rested one of his foot on the top of the hill. That is why it has the shape of a foot. This spot is presently maintained by the Indian Air Forces, and you may have to go through some frisking when you are here. It is a great spot to get away from the chaotic city life.

Highlights include:

  • There is a temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman at the top of the hill, where he was said to rest his foot.
  • It is an amazing place for trekkers. It also has a helipad.
  • The breathtaking view of the Sutlej River is an added perk to this point.

The view from the top is stunning on a starry night. You also get a glimpse of Chandigarh, Panchkula and Kalka splendidly at display. The place is flocked with many monkeys, who roam around and are usually harmless. It is a nice place to relax and soak in the fresh air and pristine views. You can reach Solan through private car or taxi; park it and trek up to Monkey Top.

Monkey Point, Kasauli Reviews

  • Nice place. Mobiles or Dslrs not allowed inside as it's a military area. There is a steep climb of stairs of about 500 meters so you need to be in fit condition. At top, view is serene. With lots of winds lashing your face. There is an average temple and a helipad at top. It will take you about 20 minutes to get to the top and 10 minutes to drop back off. There is drop in oxygen levels at top because of the altitude. So you may experience giddiness if your climb is sudden and non stop. Marble floor becomes slippery in rain so watch out.

  • Old temple of god hanumanji.. nearly 200 stairs. View is very good from top.

  • This is wonderfull place which is hidden unless you go there, pics are not from exactly same place but arround that place. You must.go.there if you ever visited kasuali

  • You just have walk up on few stairs and you are seeing scenery which you never ever seen in your life...this temple is very nice

  • Jai Shree Ram. Amazing Hanumanji temple. Beware of the monkeys on the way. Rest is good. Also an uphill task to reach the temple.
