locals would believe that Kasauli comes from Kausalya,
a mountain stream that flows between Kasauli and Jabli.
The name might even have been derived from Kusmawali or
Kusmali, meaning flower maiden. Given the abundance with
which the hills of Kasauli bloom from spring to autumn,
this could well be the truth.
two main walks around Kasauli, the Upper and Lower Mall
are beautiful. The residents of Kasauli walk a lot, for
Kasauli was always short on hill resort attractions and
meant for getting about on your own two feet, in communion
with nature or if you are lucky, a walking partner. The
somewhat steep Upper Mall takes you past an important
landmark, the Kasauli Club.
salubrious hill station of Kasauli is famous for its different
moods. The period between April and June is known for
wild blooms and their astounding aroma. Wild rose, rhododendrons,
coral tree, flame of the forest, katchnar and kashmal
give the surroundings a bewitching look. Though the hill
station is known for its green cover, the rainy season
also adds to the greenness. The fog clouds which are a
rule of the day during the monsoons, pave the way for
romantic moments. A sunny day in winter is a most valuable
phenomenon for the visitor. The snowfall between January
and February makes the hill station a veritable goldmine
for ruffled nerves.
Point : The highest point in Kasauli called
Monkey Point, is just 4-km from the Kasauli bus stand.
The Monkey Point commands an excellent view of the distant
plains of Chandigarh region and the river Satluj, tracing
a silvery trail through the scene. A small temple is
also situated on the top of the hill, which is dedicated
to Lord Hanuman. According to a legend, at the end of
Ramayana when Lord Hanuman was returning from the Himalayas
after obtaining Sanjivani Booty or the Magical Herb,
his foot touched the hill and thus the top of hill is
in a foot shape. On a clear and starry night the gorgeous
view of Chandigarh can be seen from the Monkey Point.
