    I am ok with Chail or Kasauli. I don't know if I'll be allowed to travel as far as 600+Kms!!! :?:
    Chail looks better and more peaceful than Kasauli which looks more congested. We need some good parking space as well.

    @Ratanshivi sir- Planning to go to Ladakh in your Punto? :)

    I've been to Kasauli thrice in the 90s when I was a kid. There isn't much to do over there. It is a nice place to visit, spend some time and come back.

    Some points of interest are:
    - The Hanuman Mandir at The Monkey point- Its said that while Hanuman ji were returning with that mountain that had the "Sanjeevani booti", his foot hit this place.
    - The military radars adjoining the temple.
    - The view of Chandigarh (and Sukhna lake) from the temple.

    abt CHAIL:

    places of interest and activities:-

    SIDH BABA KA MANDIR (1.5 km) : Maharaja Bhupinder Singh originally began building his palace at this site. It is said that a Sidh - saintly person - appeared before the Maharaja in dream and declared that this was the place where he had this temple built.

    CRICKET GROUND (3 km): Built in 1893, after leveling top of a hill, it stands at 2444m and is the highest cricket pitch and polo ground in the world.

    WILDLIFE SANCTUARY (3 km) : The Chail sanctuary has 'ghoral', 'kakkar', 'sambhar', red jungle fowl and 'khalij' and 'cheer' pheasants. Machan like sighting posts have been built at Khuruin.

    KUFRI : An enjoyable drive through forests and small villages leads to this small but popular station. The Nature Park here is a great attraction. A short trek leads to the Mahasu Peak with breathtaking views.

    SADHUPUL : Between Kandaghat and Chail is this village and bridge astride the Ashwani stream. A good picnic spot.

    ADVENTURE AND FISHING : A dozen or so trek routes lead out of Chail. Trails lead upto the Choor Peak and to Shimla. There is fishing on Giri river at Gaura, 29 km away.[attachment=0:xpy36cg1]the chail palace.jpeg[/attachment:xpy36cg1]

    Varoon, trip to chamba in June would be useless. I've there in April and took a U turn that too without second thought. If you want to go there than plan should be to visit Tihri Dam.
