Walks & Hikes
With many beautiful walking trails from the property one can spend hours in the pine forests working up an appetite. Our chef can pack you a picnic lunch as you set off for the day exploring. The trails go from easy to a challenging day hike. Something for everyone in any season.
Old town Kasauli
A fifteen-minute drive brings you into the heart of old Kasauli. The cantonment was established by the British Raj in 1842 as a Colonial hill station. A must visit is the Kasauli Baptist Church built in 1923. According to The Indian Express it is “considered a unique example of colonial architecture of the British era”.
A short drive from 7 Pines brings you to the Kuthar Palace. Built over 500 years ago the palace is decorated with traditional paintings, arches, pillars, temples & wood carved ceilings. Time seems to have stood still at this former royal home.
The Lawrence School, Sanawar
Founded by Sir Henry and Lady Honoria Lawrence, Sanawar is believed to be the first co-educational boarding school in the world. On the 15th of April 1847, a group of 14 boys and girls camped at the top of the foothills of the Himalayas. They lived under canvas for some weeks anxiously waiting for the first buildings to be completed before the arrival of the monsoon. One can visit with permission from the Headmaster.
Monkey Point is the highest point in Kasauli, which gives one a wonderful view of the distant Chandigarh plains. On the top of the hill, lies a small temple dedicated to Lord Hanuman. It is said that Lord Hanuman landed here before leaping onto the Sanjivani Hill to collect the herb needed to cure Lord Laxman.
