We traveled on the Toy Train which Halted at the Barog Railway station. The station is British Era styled and is well maintained and clean. In the morning one can eat Cutlets on the Railway Platform which are made to coincide with the arrival of the train. The Cutlets are yummy , but can get cold due to the cold weather. Enjoyed the snack and the views.

We stayed in Aravali cottage at Barog Railway station for a night and this was one of the best experiences. We were in Barog last weekend, if you have not booked your hotel, it is difficult to find a good accommodation at last minute specially during weekends. We had an accommodation but when we visited Barog station, we were awestruck with its beauty. It was drizzling that time in Barog. We checked with Station master and finally found a Cottage at station itself.
Station is little far off from main Barog and also 15-20 mins steep down from main road, which makes this station less crowded. There are food vendors at stn they serve hot pakodas, chhole kulche, chana bhature and hot tea/coffee.
Excellent for 1 night stay, away from crowded hill stations for a relaxed holiday...
Next morning we also walked along Barog-Solan railway track for beautiful morning views..

First of all the picture provided here is that of Prashar lake which in Mandi district of Himachal Pradesh which is about 200km away from Shimla. Barog is a small village which is about 50km from Shimla.
Barog, the engineer, was responsible for designing a tunnel near the railway station. He commenced digging the tunnel from both sides of the mountain, which is quite common as it speeds up construction. However, he made mistakes in his calculation and while constructing the tunnel, it was found that the two ends of the tunnel did not meet. Barog was fined an amount of 1 Rupee by the British government. Unable to withstand the humiliation, Barog committed suicide. He was buried near the incomplete tunnel (his grave). The area came to be known as Barog after him.

The photo given is parashar lake about forty km from Mandi. Its a lake on top of a hill, It is connected via road. Road is rough for about last 10 Km, rest is in good condition. This place is unique in the sense that a lake on hilltop and it has a temple of lord Parasher which locals worship. You can hire a taxi from Kullu Or Mandi.

The silvery moon bathed the valley in a magical white mist, the melancholy that enveloped the hills slowly dissipated away, the neon lights on the distant mountain roads appeared faint, a heavenly glow illuminated the whole horizon, the beams of an unseen vehicle highlighted the lingering darkness underneath. Slowly the clouds gathered over the green valley, the westerly wind started blowing strongly, the pine trees swayed rhythmically. Awaken at dawn by the songs of the Himalyan whistling thrushes, I stood on my verandah looking over the valley that was still shrouded in darkness. The echoes of the whistling birds built up into a chorus, everyone joining in as if to help usher in the dawn. The melancholic call of hill doves, the sweet sound of koel and some unknown birds' chirping reverberated the sleepy woods below. . The vermillion sky lighted up the horizon painting the woods in a strange twilight color, rainless clouds drifted lazily over the valley into the distance. Life is so beautiful. Happiness in the Hills. Barog Hills.

Before my visit to Barog couple of my friends had recommended this place. So it became priority in my TO DO list (specially when there is much to do in Barog :)). You cannot directly reach the station by car. Find a nice and safe car parking space and then get ready for some short yet steep trek :). Be careful while locating the board for stations as you may easily skip it while driving. The downward trek is always easy. The trel becomes very narrow at times. I do not recommend to carry small kids as it might get real tiresome on your way back up. The station is beautiful. The platform was empty when we visited the station so you may get ample views for some good photographs. The mascot of Indian railways (APPU) is very cute there. Do remember to get some clicks there. You wont find much to do there just tor relax and enjoy the natural beauty. You may see the grave @ the tunnel. Do carry a water bottle and some snacks as you would find only one shop there with almost no options to eat. We took the risk of trying tea there only to realize it was not worth :D. On your way up go slow and you would find no problem in reaching your vehicle. Happy sight seeing :)

Barog railway station is indeed a heritage Station with history of more than 100 years. The place is absolutely clean and charming with well painted buildings and lovely hanging flowers pots. One must visit the station, spend some time to be transported to a different era. Nothing happens here in a hurry, even trains chug along leisurely. And then there is story of Engineer Mr Barog, who killed himself as he was too upset having made an engineering error in directing the construction of the tunnel. Tunnel he made is abandoned is a short walk from Hotel Pinewood.

An hour and a half leisurely trek from our camp through the pine hills took us down straight to the station. The beautiful quaint barog station with the green hills in the background and the longest tunnel in front mesmerised us. We almost felt the presence of great engineer barog and his wonderful creation came alive. We explored around spent some time with the station master until the train came and we had a memorable ride. A must visit if you love to venture into the untrodden and unknown places
