 Chindi (Himachal Pradesh)

Description: Chindi of Shimla is located in the Karsog valley. Shimla's Chindi is amidst enormous orchards of apples and dense hilly woods of deodars and pines. It is one of the most lovely places of Himachal Pradesh. For a weekend getaway from the monotonous daily routine life, Chindi is an ideal destination that provides a welcome break. Chindi being a very small hilly area, is not that way visited by the tourists but yet the place has got its own charm and splendor. The sight of the rambling hills together with the lush green forests and valleys is really something mentionworthy. Chindi's real claim to fame in India at large lies at the top of the hill above the village; the Chindi rest house.The house itself looks something like a miniature Georgian country manor house, with a large, well kept garden and a serene view, looking out as it does over miles of gently rolling hills.
