Once the world’s highest golf course, Naldehra is still an attraction for ardent golfers around the world. The Koti Golf Cup is hosted every year by the descendants of the late Rana of Koti in October. A visit to this village, with its green dales and meadows, one can understand why Lady Mary Curzon, (Vicereine of India) was so fond of her residence in the Mashobra hills that she named her youngest Alexandra Naldera.
Chail is perhaps best known for its namesake cricket ground, which was built in 1893 by the then Maharaja of Patiala, Bhupinder Singh.

A drive to Kufri will appeal to families seeking fun and adventures. The lofty valleys of this small town remain refreshingly green during summer, and turn perfectly white during winters, offering some of the most beautiful sights all year round.
