77-km from Shimla and 35-km from Kalka, at 1,927m, Kasauli is a quaint little town that seems to exist in a time wrap of an era that reminds one of the 19th century. Its colonial ambience is reinforced by cobbled paths, quaint shops, gabled houses with charming facades and scores of neat little gardens and orchards. Mixed forests of chir-pine, Himalayan oak and huge horse chestnuts surround Kasauli. Its narrow road slithers up and down the hillsides and offer some magnificent vistas.

History of City

Kasauli is one of the small towns developed by the British during the better days of the empire, and reached by a branch road from the Kalka-Shimla road.

Education in the City

The quite beautiful hill-station of Kasauli has a Pasteur Institute that produces the anti-rabies vaccine against mad dog-bite and, at the same time, treats victims who have fallen prey to the dead disease, Hydrophobia. The institute in Kasauli set up in 1900, is the oldest in India, taking care of pet, police and army dogs as well as their masters. Side by side another institute produces other vaccines; this is the Central Research Institute affording immunity from Typhoid, small-pox, cholera, and snake-bite. The Shimla Hills stand on water - parting between the Sutlej and the Giri, a tributary of the Yamuna.
