Things to see and do in Naldehra
Naldehra is located at a distance of 22 kms from Shimla, the capital city of Himachal Pradesh. Mashobra Naldehra and Tattapani are on the same route so all the three places are covered in one go by the tourists in general. Tattapani is 30 Kms from this place, tourists wanting their trip to cover Kufri generally drop this place from their eternity. There is a diversion to these places from the national highway towards the left a few kilometers before Kufri. This place can be reached easily by taxi or by the popular Himachal tourism daily bus trips. More information about bus trips and Himachal tourism contact numbers are available in the tourist places around Shimla section.
Golf course in Naldehra
The highlight at Naldehra is the 9 hole golf course measuring 4,285 yards which was suggested and developed by Lord Curzon the then Viceroy of India in the early 1900s.
It is probably the oldest golf course in India. Captivated by the beauty of the place, surrounded by a thick forest of Himalayan cedar, which was also his favourite camping site just outside the British summer capital, he established what today is one of the most scenic golf courses in the country. He was so fantasized with this place that he named his third daughter as Alexandra Naldehra.
Initially a 9 Hole Course, the Naldehra golf course was expanded to 18 holes, and further expansion has been planned to make the course at par with the best in the country.
It is possible to play on the course by paying a daily green fee or take temporary, annual or life membership. Equipment is available on hire as well.
The course is presently maintained and run by Himachal Tourism. accommodation and food are available on the premises.
The course is open throughout the year. The perfect season for golfing in Naldehra is from April to October and the best golfing months are the monsoon ones- July, August and September when the naturally watered turf is rich and springy and the yardage increases.
Picnic in Naldehra
The jungle area around the golf course is an excellent picnic spot. There are nice views of the pine and deodar covered hills. On a clear day, you can view the snow-capped Himalayan mountains. It is ideal for long leisurely walks amidst the pines and deodars. The greatest thing here is the serene and peaceful surroundings with only you and mother nature. No touristy crowds to spoil the pretty picture. Hear the sound made by winds blowing through the pines. It sounds like a waterfall. A visit here is bound to leave you fresh and rejuvenated.
Horse riding in Naldehra
The forest area can also be covered through horse riding. Separate tracks are there for the horses and they take you through some distant forest having more views of the valley and hills. Horse riding in the jungle among the woods is altogether a different experience available in Kufri and Naldehra only. The forest area has also been filmed many Hindi films and there is high probability of finding a film crew there in the summer months.
About 12 km from Naldehra is the Mashobra, a thick pine forest area; and the hot sulphur springs of Tattapani is 30 km from Naldehra.
