Naldehra, a hill Station in Shimla, is situated at an approx. distance of 20 KMs from main Shimla City and at a height of approx. 2000 mtrs. Above the sea level. Naldehra, which happens to be home of one of my close mate, offers a great experience to visitors in terms of Its Lush Green surroundings, a sneak into the creative approach of the British Era and amazing people apart from the various activities.
Naldehra is home to Mahunag Temple, which is dedicated to the Serpant God and this is how it derives its name. Naldehra was discovered by Lord Curzon, The British Viceroy.
