The sunset point is the common thread which binds all hill stations but this one is different from all others.
The place is inside the Army cantonment and unlike other hill stations which you find littered with filth, this place is absolutely spic and span (or ship-shape as the Faujis would call it). There is a small park for the children to play and some seating as well. So if you land up there well before sunset, you can park yourself comfortably. Vehicles are not permitted beyond a point so you have to walk just about half a kilometre (good for health) and you are there.
Don't be intimidated by the Army jawans. They are doing their duty and won't trouble you unless they find your behaviour suspicious or find you littering the place or indulging in drinking or smoking. Remember, these two things are not permitted in public in Kasauli and this being in the cantt, you have to comply with the rules (thankfully, unlike other places where the 'thulla mamus' turn a blind eye to the miscreants after taking a bribe.
I believe all those whining about the Army's presence in Kasauli must be those who would have been ticked off by the Army Jawans for either drinking or smoking or both.
So don't bother too much about it and head off to the sunset point for a nice picnic in the evening. And in case you are carrying some eatables, don't forget to clean up the mess or you too would later be complaining of the 'Intimidating Presence' of 'Army Goons'...
And don't forget to enjoy the SUNSET!!!
