The only hill station in Haryana, Morni Hills is a perfect weekend getaway destination from Delhi and Chandigarh. The sleepy town is surrounded with lush greenery on all sides and the Shivalik range of Himalayas forming its backdrop. If you are looking to explore the unexplored, Morni Hills is an ideal choice. There’s much to see and do here, but these are the top places to visit.
Located about 7km from Morni Hills, Tikkar Taal boasts of two man-made lakes. A hillock divides the two interconnected artificial lakes of Chota Taal and Bara Taal, making the landscape look straight out of a dream. This is just the place for you if you like trekking, boating or even cycling.
Another rather important attraction here is the Gurudwara Nada Sahib. Legend has it, that Guru Gobind Singh rested here for a while going to Anandpur Sahib, making it a pious place for the Sikhs. The river flowing beside this Gurudwara and the sound of the water splashing against the rocks, makes this place nothing short of a meditative retreat. Another temple that attracts a large number of devotees is the Thakurdwara Temple. The highlight of the temple are its ancient stone sculptures, and it’s believed that the temple dates back to the time of the Pandavas.
If you’re a history buff, you’re in for a treat as well. Morning Fort – a gigantic fort sprawled at the top of Morni hills offers a gorgeous view of the whole town. It is believed to have been constructed in the 17th century; a colourful temple dedicated to Lord Shiva right adjacent to it.
There’s even an adventure park here for the adventure junkie, that offers options like zip-line, Burma bridge and climbing nets. This adventure park is for people who want to experience some thrill on their getaway and is especially great if you have kids with you.
