Encircled with dense forest cover and majestic hills, Solan is a very popular gateway to other hill stations like Kasauli, Chail and Kalka. It is situated at a distance of 46 km from Shimla and should be visited while making a trip to this famous hill station. Perched at an elevation of around 1,600 meters above the sea level, this district is also known as the 'City of red gold' due to the extensive tomato production.
Solan experiences a pleasant temperature all year round but the best place to visit here would be during June when it hosts the annual fair dedicated to Shoolini Devi. There are countless tourist attractions in Solan that would not only offer respite from the city crowd but also awe your senses with their beauty. The Shoolini Devi Temple, Kuthar Fort, Solan Brewery, Nalagarh Palace, Bodh Monastery, Jatoli Shiv Temple and Karol Tibba etc., are some of the popular destinations.
