The best place to stay is the Nalagarh Fort, located on a hillock at the foothills of the mighty Himalayas. It was built during the reign of Raja Bikram Chand in 1421 and is now a hotel, with good lodging facilities strongly reminiscent of the famous Neemrana Fort. One can go for Ayurvedic oil treatment, golf and swimming here. At night, the fort provides a breathtaking view of the surrounding towns of Punjab and Himachal Pradesh. Mind you, it is the not the only major fort in the region – 21 km north of Nalagarh stands the Ramgarh Fort, at a height of 4000 feet. The fort played an important role in the Gurkha Wars and its ramparts command a panoramic view of the snow-clad Himalayan peaks.
