With an altitude of 1927 Metres, an average temperature of just 15 degrees Celsius, dawns often bathed in early-morning mist, and relics of the colonial era, it's not difficult to see what lures the tourists to the beautiful hill-station, Kasauli. Nestled in the Shivalik hills with a mix of pine and oak trees as well as a large number of neat gardens and orchards, Kasauli offers an ideal escape from the steaming plains of northern India. Its history, coupled with the pleasant temperate mountain climate and beautiful scenic grandeur gives it the feel of a colonial charm. Kasauli is also popular for Kasauli Brewery and distillery and considered to be one of the oldest functioning distilleries for Scotch whisky in Asia. Its rippling torrents, beautiful alpine plots and lofty snowstorms magnetize plenty of tourists round the year.
