Naldehra

Naldehra, nestled between the beautiful lofty ranges of the Himalayas, is a hill resort near Shimla that remained unnoticed till the beginning of this century when the then British viceroy, Lord Curzon, discovered it. The place got its name from the Nag temple (or Dehra of the god Nag) which lies bang in the centre of the course. The golf course is one of the most gorgeous stretches of land in Naldehra.
