Fagu Fagu

Fagu is a very small town at an altitude of 2450 m famous for it’s spectacular views of the mountains and fruits orchards. It is a nice getaway from Shimla city when it gets too crowded. It is a tiny village that lies along the Hindustan Tibet Road (NH 22) and is astride a mountain saddle. This unusual location gives this village a  agnificent view of both sides of the hill. The views encompass both the northern and  southern valleys and the sparking snow-clad peaks of the Himalaya. In the open patches, the valleys hold picture-perfect hamlets, orchards and neatly terraced fields. The area is covered with deodar and spruce forests and has both nature’s splendour
and serenity.
