Nalagarh is a pefect stop on the way from Chandigarh towards the Kulu valley.
The scruffy town has a splendid fort, originally built in the 15th century but today converted into a heritage hotel.
Overlooking the Punjab plains, the Nalagarh Fort is located on a hillock at the foothills of the mighty Himalayas affording a panoramic view of the Shivalik Hills beyond the Sirsa river.
Admittedly there isn’t much to do at Nalagarh but unwind and enjoy, but it makes an excellent base from which to explore a little-visited part of Himachal Pradesh.
