Looks pretty and pristine

Walked across to Naldera from Mashobra when we were there in Sept last month. And while notwithstanding the commercialization in this hamlet, the Golf Course remains pristine and so pretty. It is one of the best sights for sore eyes, rolling terrain, a beautiful view with nobody in sight and dotted with log huts. All in all, a wonderful place to spend a quiet afternoon.

Time pass place

This is one of the ok place in Shimla as guide made commitment to show the Golf Place but, it will close for visitors, so please do not waste your time. You can enjoy the long horse ride and some other activities. The place if you wish to spend relaxing time with family. You can enjoy the maggi and tea here in small stalls.

Wonderful and must visit place

Naldehra is located 22 km from Shimla. The most famous and wonderful attraction of this hill station is the 18 hole golf course which is considered to be the most challenging golf course. One can go there on foot or by pony riding. Excellent scenic beauty. Amidst thick Deodar Trees cover with light mist. A Snake Temple is also there.

Good location

Naldehra golf club is situated on good height. Its is the location covered with lots of Deodar trees. Near to Naldehra Golf club many Bollywood movie songs were shot. We can go to this place by horse riding. Horse riding fee is around Rs.250 for 35-40 min. Another is Rs.380 which include more places and is about 1-1.30hrs.

Beautiful and scenic

Its the main attraction in Naldehra and supposedly the highest Golf Course. It is definitely very scenic. The approach road could have been better if there were no ponies littering it with dung. The Govt seriously needs to pay more attention in developing this place.
