Naldehra : It is your tea time now! - 1

Naldehra belongs to the state of Himachal Pradesh. It is located at 6,706 ft, 26 km North of Shimla and 373 km North of Delhi. Route from Delhi NH1 to Ambala; NH22 to Dhalli via Zirakpur, Panchkula and Shimla; state road to Naldehra.

You will never get such a high teeing off anywhere else in the world. Up there, at 6,706 ft, is another of Lord Curzon's legacies to India: an 18-hole golf course (played twice over) that's said to be the country's oldest. Also tucked away here is a tiny Mahunag "Kemple dedicated to the snake god. That is where Naldehra gets its name from: nag + dehra translates into the 'Abode of the King of the Snakes'. Lord Curzon didn't appear to have been turned off - the former Viceroy gave his second daughter, Alexandra, 'Naldera' as her second name.

Members of Delhi's tony Golf Club clamber up here in the summer, lock, stock and golfing clubs. Naldehra is the right place to spend around 3-4 days or make it a base to visit other destinations on and off the Old Hindustan-Tibet Road. Most of these connect to Mashobra, the charming enclave of British Rai mansions. The interiors of Naldehra, with their spruce pines, plum trees and berries, have escaped the trample of the tourists but that looks set to change, given the amount of construction activity. Another teeny warning: the view of the snow-crowned Himalayan Range will be blocked for most part by the Shaily Peak and its less impressive sisters.
