Dharampur is a hill town nestled on National Highway No.8, with Sunrise Cottage – a nice Hotel near Kasauli – situated at it’s edge, right on the main highway, without the accompanying noise.
Just drive in; it is not even off the road, and there is plenty of parking.
Why does anyone need to stay in Dharampur, especially at Sunrise Cottage?
Well, because of it’s location, location and location, not to mention the tastefully decorated, scenic rooms looking straight out onto the tree tops of fragrant pine forests right above the serpentine track of the famous hill train which winds through the Shimla Hills all the way from Kalka to Shimla.
Sunrise Cottage is strategically located at the junction of the Kalka-Kasauli-Shimla Road. So if you have children studying at the Lawrence School, Sanawar, or Pinegrove School or Dagshai Public School or other major educational institutions nearby, it is your ideal location. You could even drive down to Timber Trail to sample the Car Cable
Beautiful drives continue to the apple collection centre at Barog, to the historical Cantonment town of Kasauli, to Sobatu and Dagshai, and ofcourse, Dharampur is the town situated just before, or after sprawling Solan, depending on the direction of your approach.
If you are going to Mashobra, or planning a golf week-end at Naldera, acclimatize to higher hills with an over night stop at Sunrise Cottage, just for the joy of nestling into a spotless, clean bed after a steaming solar heated bath looking out at romantic moonlit forests and twinkling stars from your picture window. And let the dawn wash over you while you lazingly watch all it’s changing colours in the horizon. It’s like sleeping out in the open, without any of the accompanying discomforts!
The cheerful SUNRISE COTTAGE certainly lives upto it’s name!
