About BarogBAROG is a cute little place immerging as a major holiday attraction to spend a day in. It is a small village in Solan district in the Himachal Pradesh. Set in the mountains Barog is just 60km from Chandigarh on the Kalka-Shimla highway. It used to be an important stop in the early decades of the century when the Kalka-Shimla toy train stopped here for an hour while the sahibs and memsahibs enjoyed a lavish lunch. The station is one of the prettiest on the line with its hanging baskets of pink geraniums. Barog was settled in the early 20th century during the building of the narrow gauge Kalka-Shimla Railway.
Attractions at BarogBarog’s attractions include the railway station (4 km) from Solace Residences & Suites, Barog, H.P. which is perhaps the most attractive one on the Kalka Shimla Railway line and also has the longest tunnel which is over a kilometer long. You may also hike to old abandoned tunnel that lies at some distance above the station.
In past couple of decades, Barog has emerged from a mere stopover on the highway to a popular and full fledged destination. Surrounded by pine woods and views of the valley and the peak of Choor Chandni, this is also a convenient weekend gateway from the Delhi - Punjab Haryana Region. Barog is increasingly becoming a popular conference & marriage destination too.
