Kasauli is a small town in the state of Himachal Pradesh located at an altitude of 1,927 m. The town is 77 km from Shimla and 70 km from Chandigarh. Legend says that it came into existence after Lord Hanuman placed his feet here in order to advance on to the Sanjeevani hill.

Normally one can visit Kasauni at any time but April to June & Saptember to November is the best time. During this season, you can find different colors of nature.
