Naldehra near Simla Paradise in the Himalayan hills

21-Sep-2013, 12:49:00, :
Among the all hamlets of Himachal Pradesh is Naldehra, a town just a little while away from the hustle-bustle of the well known hill station, Simla.

About an hour's drive from the main city, Naldehra is everything that Simla is not - serene, green and ever so fascinating

But since visiting such offbeat destinations come with the onus of choosing a promising place to stay, Place to stay here could add crucial bit to the experience. But you can stop at the quaint settlement, Chalets Naldehra, a one of a kind boutique mountain resort which is nothing less than a paradise perched on the hills.

Inspired by the magnificent Swiss chalet architecture, The Chalets Naldehra is a home away from home, where every room overlooks independently spectacular & different view - the morning clouds, the green patch of forest with imposing cedar trees, and the immaculately manicured lawns. The rooms are essentially well designed.

Lessons in golf

It was under Lord Curzon's watchful supervision, the Viceroy of India during the early 1900s, that a 9-hole golf course perched at an altitude of 2,200 meters took shape. What used to be his favourite camping site just outside the summer capital of British India (Simla), with thick manes of Himalayan cedar enveloping the pristine beauty, was soon transformed into an impressive golf course. Unfailingly, he named the course after this third daughter Alexandra Naldehra.

Today, the Naldehra Golf Course is a grand 18-hole golf course, one of the oldest and most scenic in the country that resides right next to The Chalets Naldehra. Tourists can try their hand at the sport by paying a nominal daily green fee that ranges between Rs 250 to Rs 500. One could either trek their way up the ridge but since the climb is exceedingly steep it is advisable to hire a cab or pony. But it is only after you witness the breathtaking grandeur of the lush topographic glades that you realise why it is regarded at par with the reputable golf clubs of India.

A stroll in the apple orchards of Mashobra

It is one thing to buy apples from your local fruit vendor, and it is another thing to pluck them off the branches and bite into its savoury, untouched sweetness. The centre has about 170 varieties of apple trees, both red and golden, on board. Ideally, the apple harvest season in Himachal Pradesh begins in August and lasts till September.

Places of interest:

- Practise golf at Naldehra Golf Course (7 am to 6 pm) - Visit the Viceroy Regal Lodge in Simla - Go for walks in apple orchards of Mashobra

Enjoyable activities:

- Forest walks - Heritage walks in Simla - White water river rafting - Horse-riding

How to reach The Chalets Naldehra:

By road:

From Delhi: About 6 hours From Chandigarh: About 2.5 hours

By train (recommended):

The Kalka Shatabdi transports you to the humble Kalka railway station in less than 5 hours. From there, it takes about 3-4 hours to reach the resort. The hotel staff is kind enough to arrange a pick up and drop on request.

By air:

The closest airport is at Jubbar-Hatti, 45 km away.

Best time to visit: Spring and autumn are the most favourable seasons if you wish to bask in the winter sun. Winters are chilly but you do get to wake up to a lovely snowfall right outside your cottage porch!
