Tourist attraction in Fagu

If you are the kind of person who prefers not to be amongst the rat race of the urban blunder and prefer to be at a quaint village experiencing the serenity of nature, then Fagu is just the right place for you. It is located on the Hindustan Tibet road and it is 23kms away from Shimla. You can access Fagu by driving through the Victory Tunnel towards Chotta Shimla road.

You can go further by driving through another tunnel that leads you through a woody forest offering you great views of the vast greenery. The forest is home to a large number of deodar and spruce trees that fill the air with their exotic aromas. On the way you can have a detour to Wildflower Hall and Kufri to enjoy the spectacular views. The Kufri bypass leads you to Fagu which can be reached in half an hour. En route to Fagu, you can visit the Army Heritage Museum in Shimla that houses some of the rare documents and properties used by the army.

The HP Tourism owns a Peach Blossom accommodation that is clean and affordable. Fagu is populated with numerous Apple orchards and potato fields. It is enchanting to feel the crisp clean winter air embracing your skin along with the sweet scent of apples. The earthy flavor of the local cuisine is influenced by the fresh potatoes harvested from the fields around Fagu. Roaming through the steep and curvy roads gives you a feeling of being very close to the Himalayan range. The village is neatly aligned with the manicured terraced fields that add more beauty to the topography.

The best month of the year to tour around Fagu is April. Heavy clothing is suggested during this month as the snow is really harsh and the entire place is covered by low clouds for most part of the day. Though the climate is extremely cold, it is worth the attempt that allows you to admire the mountain ranges covered by the fresh falling snow. The snow clad peaks refresh your mind while you stroll down the roads in the early hours of the morning and in the twilight.

Hiking is another pastime to stay close to the nature. The village is dotted with very few small shops selling only the essentials. Driving through the Fagu-Mashobra trail introduces you to the stunning nature landscapes and the valley down below.

Fagu is conveniently located for easy access to other tourist spots in its surroundings like Narkanda, Mashobra, Kufri, Naldehra and Shimla. Therefore staying at Fagu for a couple of days can get you to all these places without spending too much on accommodation and also staying away from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the places. Another interesting getaway is to take a quick excursion to Kothhai, the apple growing heartland of Himachal Pradesh.

On a gist, Fagu is a great place to escape from the busy city life and plunge into the magic spread of tiny hamlets, luscious orchards and terraced fields.
