Peaceful Weekends at Naldehra

by Madhav Srinivasan 1950 days ago

If teeing off at a height of 2044 meters appeals to you, visit Naldehra, an enchanting little Hill Station in Himachal Pradesh. Naldehra gained popularity amongst golfers and tourists alike because of its golf course (one of the highest in the world)

Himachal Pradesh, the lovely State with its snow-clad peaks, has always been a favored destination for both domestic and foreign tourists. From the capital city of Shimla to tiny villages and towns like Naldehra, this state is a tourist paradise. Book your Himachal Pradesh tours to visit Naldehra which is a delightful hill station. 

Naldehra Golf Course – A Golfer’s Paradise

Naldehra, a hill station situated at a height of 2044 meters above sea level, is home to the oldest golf course in India, and it is one of the highest in the world. This golf course was the brain child of the British Viceroy Lord Curzon. He was enchanted by this tiny little town with its rolling hills and verdant slopes. He decided that it was the perfect place for a golf course, and an entire hilltop was leveled to lay out the 9-hole course. A visit to Naldehra is incomplete without a trip to Shimla, which is merely 27 km from Naldehra. 

Located 23 km from Shimla, this beautiful town is surrounded by wooded forests and lush green hills with the Sutlej River meandering around it. Naldehra has hosted many golf tournaments in the country. Initially, it was laid out as a 9-hole course; later, it was expanded to an 18-hole Golf Course – 16 Greens and 18 Tees.

Naldehra Nag Temple

Naldehra derives its name from a Snake God Temple – The Dehra of Nagraj (King of Snakes). The Mahunag Temple with the Snake God as the main deity is located in the middle of the Naldehra Golf Course. This temple is also a prime attraction to tourists here and can be best visited on honeymoon tours in Himachal
