This walk has the ability to leave you spellbound with its beauty. Sleeping Beauty, a walk towards Bharari.
Starting from the Ridge of Shimla we walk thought the famous Lakkar Bazaar and then towards Longwood. The view from here towards north is spell bound. Pass some of the oldest houses built by the British and some of them are left by their present descendant to deteriorate. But still the keep an attraction for many due to their architecture and location. Many times the presence of leopards has been recorded in and around these buildings. They provide shelter to some wildlife, flying fox, stray dogs or to some itinerant sadhu.
Here you will see a number of old houses, forest and a few villages. Some new construction on the way might irritate you but a visit to a small wooden temple that is a marvellous example of hill architecture is an attraction for many. Some possibility is there of coming across wildlife or pheasants in the area, but generally the laughter of school children, gossip from village shops, chirping birds and people chatting in some old houses will attract your attraction during the walk.
