Nahan- The Untouched Himalayan Paradise Near Delhi
If you and your friends have been thinking of planning a weekend trip to a hill station near Delhi, Nahan is an excellent option to be looking forward to. The quiet capital of Sirmour District in Himachal Pradesh is located only 240 kms. from Delhi. The town has been home to some famous celebrities like Mohit Chauhan, Khali (WWE- Wrestler) etc. One could spend their time wandering in the local flea market or take a trip to Renuka Lake or Jamta. Renuka Lake is the largest lake of Himachal Pradesh and has beautifully architectured temples around it. One could also go down the Nahan-Shimla Road (now a part of the National Highway no. 6) to check out the natural beauty of the Shiwalik Hills or do adventure camping at some very good campsites like Camp Roxx. The town's beauty is well captured in its streets and local museums where stories from the British heritage still echo.
Nahan is surrounded by the majestic Shiwalik mountains which are full of tall, beautiful pine trees that transport one's senses to a world of calm & relaxation. This is surely a must visit place for Dilliwallahs who are tired of going to overcrowded hill-stations like Shimla and Manali & would like to discover more of Himachal.
Hey everyone, I am Sameer Gupta, a traveler by heart and nature lover from Delhi. I am also the marketing manager for a company called MCG Camp Roxx Pvt. Ltd. which runs an adventure camp 30 kms from Nahan (H.P.). I look forward to sharing my experiences with everyone in the community here & reading about theirs also.
